Presto Products Company announces the lauch of the CHILD-GUARD™ closure, an enhanced version of Presto's market-leading Slide-Rite® slider. It represents the first child-resistant slider available for application on pouch packaging that meets Title 16 CFR 1700 of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) with ASTM D3475 classification from ASTM International (formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials).
"Just three years ago, the Centers of Desease Control and Prevention received more than 1.12 million calls involving poison exposure for children under six years-old", said Brad Hansen, president of Presto Specialty Group, Presto Producs Company. "We knew there was a void in the flexible packaging category for a child-resistant zipper and committed ourselves to develop a solution that would satisfy this critical market need."
The lauch of CHILD-GUARD technology allows brand owners to leverage flexible packaging as a format and still meet child-resistant mandates. By choosing flexible packaging, which is lighter-weight and more compact than rigid alternatives, brand owners can achive both environmental and cost-saving benefits across the supply chain.
CHILD-GUARD is ideal for a number of applications, including home care, chemical, pharmaceutical, nutraneutical and other granules, powders and solid mixes that should not be consumed by children or taken without adult supervision. The combination of CHILD-GUARD with the barrier protection of flexible packaging is also well suited for medical marijuana food producs since they require child-resistant packaging and need to stay fresh for extendet periods of time. Until the lauch of CHILD-GUARD, flexible packaging was nit an option for this type of product category where regulations mandate child-resistance for recloseable packaging, limiting manufacturers' options to rigid formats.
