Due to the composite characteristics of multiple materials and obvious protective display capabilities, composite materials are easy to obtain, simple to process, strong composite layers, and low consumption, and gradually become a commonly used packaging material in candy. Most of the composite materials are based on flexible packaging. Currently, commonly used materials include paper-plastic composite, aluminum-plastic composite, and paper-aluminum composite.
