New easy-open packaging option pops up

Lisa McTigue Pierce in Packaging Design on March 20, 2015

Billed as one way to alleviating wrap rage, PopPack creates an air bubble in the seal of a flexible or semi-rigid package. Popping the bubble ruptures the seal, separating the layers, so users of any age and dexterity can then easily and quickly peel open the package.

Created by PopPack LLC, the patented “Bubble-in-the-seal” technology works with packaging reclosure systems, such as zippers and sliders, so packages can be reclosed after opening to keep product fresh. Ergonomic, intuitive and frustration free, PopPack works with several packaging formats—such as pouches, sachets and blister packs—making it suitable for foods, healthcare products, and household and other consumer goods.

When pressed, the tactile bubble produces a “popping” sound, giving consumers multiple sensory cues to assure them of the product’s safety and freshness.
