Demand for easy-open-and-close features is increasing and is being driven by consumer acceptance, says Anthony Catino, director, VersaPack, Fair Lawn, NJ.
It offers a complete processing system called the Advantage Line, which consists of packaging machinery and materials.On the materials side, VersaPack
offers a complete line of SCR pouches with various barriers: foil, aluminum oxide, or silicon dioxide coated, EVOH, and PVDC. "All of these pouches can be fitted with a Zip-Pak Retort zipper," he
says. Several months ago an agreement was reached for VersaPack
to provide SCR pouches exclusively with Zip-Pak's retort zipper.Low-cost, photo-quality rotogravure printing is also offered, which further enhances graphics. "The new slide-zipper feature you see on many packages in the marketplace is something we've just added to our portfolio, and we offer this in addition to our traditional press-to-close [PTC] zipper," he
adds. The PTC zipper is widely accepted and offered on the smallest pouches that don't ready need it, Catino
