Among the many Zip-Pak flexible packaging solutions to be featured at Interpack 2014 include:

Sensus™ Sensory Feedback Fastener
Sensus is the first in the Zip-Pak family of resealable closures called Sensory Feedback Fasteners; they feature performance characteristics that appeal to a consumer’s sense of sound, sight, smell or touch. The Sensus re-closure profile is specifically designed to create a tactile bumping sensation and audible clicking noise when the zipper is opened or resealed. These tactile and audible prompts provide consumers complete assurance that their flexible package has firmly been sealed.

Fragrance-Zip Fragrance Embedded Fastener
Fragrance-Zip joins Sensus in Zip-Pak’s family of Sensory Feedback Fasteners. Fragrance-Zip is a new zipper closure solution designed to emit a customized aroma upon initial and subsequent openings of a flexible package. The scent is embedded in the reclosure during the manufacturing process and can duplicate virtually any specified aroma, enabling a package to replicate a desired scent whenever opened. This versatile fragrance option can be incorporated into any style of resealable Zip-Pak closure.

Vector™ Resealable Matrix Fastener
Vector is a proprietary self-sealing matrix closure system that closes securely without precisely lining up the opposing segments. Because Vector closes on itself and has no end termination, it represents an easy-to-use alternative to traditional zipper profiles. With Vector, consumers can scoop and pour flexible package contents, making it an ideal closure for a variety of applications. Vector can be seamlessly adapted to existing manufacturing lines.

Zipbox® The Resealable Box
Zipbox is a revolutionary packaging innovation that combines the best features of traditional paperboard cartons with the convenience and functionality of zippered pouch packaging incorporating the ZIP-PAK® Zipflex® resealable closure. It provides the ideal solution to the long-standing consumer need for easier package re-closure and maintaining product freshness after opening.

Visitors can also learn about Zip-Pak’s end-to-end technical guidance and operational support for anyone who may consider integrating one of its resealable solutions into a new or existing flexible package. The company’s global field services team of highly experienced equipment and packaging experts readily travel to facilities worldwide to assist with resealable closure consultation, specification, integration and operator training.
