Chub Films

What is Chub Sheet?

Chub sheets are a type of packaging material that is used for many purposes in the agricultural, food, and also non-food industries. Chub films need to be made of durable and sustainable material for shipping and handling purposes. Efficient chub films give strength, non-breaking and non-leaking properties while keeping the thickness and weight as less as possible.

Chub packaging is cylindrical shaped semi-rigid tubes which is clipped or twist tied through clips or metal fasteners respectively at either ends. Chub packaging is used to pack soft food products including pet food, taco meat, salami, chorizo, sausage, ground turkey, ground beef among others. Unprinted, white or printed multi-layer films which are usually developed through co-extrusion are used to pack food products in chub packaging format. Printed chub films are commonly used to pack case-ready products.
Chub packages are produced by using a vertical form fill seal (VFFS) process. The main factors driving the chub films packaging market is increase in number of packaging units per unit time, thus increasing line speed and reducing leaker rates.

Types of Chub Sheet

Chub films can be of different material types, end-user type, and or packaging machinery.

Chub films can be segmented into the following based on their material type:

  • Polyethylene (PE)
  • High Barrier Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC)
  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
  • Multilayer nylon
  • Other

Chub films can differ based on the end-user or the industry that uses it. They are used in:

  1. Food industry
  2. Non-food industry
  3. Agricultural

Based on packaging, chub films can be segmented into two types

  1. Semi-Automatic
  2. Fully Automatic

Features of Chub Films:

  1. Printed chub films are used for packing poultry and turkey. Tubes of the ground and minced meat are also packed using this chub films. The highly stretchable sleeves of the chub help in facilitating high-speed packaging with superior seal and keeps it sealed throughout a wide range of temperatures.
  2. Puncture resistant chub films are used to withstand production, shipping, and handling pressures. Its flap-less seal fully exposes the print and the graphics all around the package give a beautiful gloss and slipping properties.

Packaging or Chub Sheet Applications

  • Chub film applications can differ based on the packaging material or the product that needs to be packaged.  The driving factor of the chub film packaging market is the number of packaging units per unit time. Thus, the chub film packaging that can increase the line speed of packaging while reducing leakage rates is the clear winner.
  • Chub packaging format for food products is cylindrically shaped with semi-rigid tubes that are clipped or twist tied at either end. Clips or metal fasteners can be used to pack the ends of the film. Such type of chub packaging is used to pack soft food products such as pet food, taco meat, salami, chorizo, sausage, ground turkey, ground beef, etc. In this chub packaging format either unprinted, white, or printed multi-layer films are used. Printed multi-layer films used for this purpose are usually developed through co-extrusion.
  • To pack case-ready products printed chub films are used.
  • The vertical form fill seal (VFFS) process is used for producing chub packages.
