Water Soluble Packages


Delivering premeasured chemicals to mixers and mixing tanks in water soluble bags made with polyvinyl alcohol, PVA or PVOH, film insures consistent quantities, prevents spills and protects personnel from exposure to hazardous substances.

Products packages in water soluble films include:

  • agricultural chemicals
  • water treatment chemicals
  • concrete additives
  • concrete dyes
  • super-absorbent polymers

For requirements in the thousands of packages per day, the most economical means of production is a vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machine. Most vertical form fill seal machines are not designed to accommodate stretchy, sticky, powdered coated films such as PVA; however, General Packaging Equipment Co.’s Primus series model 643P is with PVA specific modifications successfully makes and fills packages with water soluble film.
