New at PACK EXPO International 2012 is the Slider Select, a small, light-weight slider option. Director of global marketing at Zip-Pak Robert E. Hogan demonstrated the new slider Monday morning in the company's booth, pointing out its light weight and compact size. It reportedly offers a high degree of leak resistance, which is suitable for keeping food products fresh and flavorful, and keeping personal-care items such as pre-moistened wipes dry and usable. Unlike some slider options, wihc require an area of pre-activation, the Slider Select does not require a small opening or protruding finger for the clip to work properly. Further, because the slider uses less material than competitive products, it offers users cost savings and sustainability benefits.
Also on display in the Zip-Pak booth: the Vector resealable matrix, and the ZipBox, which Packaging Digest featured in its January issue.
