There’s an economical saving, a green saving as far as over-the-road cost, cost to manufacture and the energy used to manufacture rigid vs. flexible -- it’s just a win-win among the entire supply chain.

Flexaco, Inc. is proud to announce that they will be incorporating the new Child-Guard™ flexible packaging solutions which have just become available after meeting federal guidelines. The new packaging will be on a full scale of production by the fourth quarter of 2015.

Products with Child-Guard™ technologies, developed by Presto, are designed to keep children away from dangerous substances, such as medication or harsh chemicals. This type of packaging is particularly interesting to industries that were unable to move to flexible packaging without the aid of child-resistance. This includes industries that deal with products such as pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, chemicals, lawn and garden products, household products, medical marijuana, and insecticides.

Child-Guard™ technologies have been fully tested, and are a simple and cost-effective solution for all packaging needs. This system is adaptable to many film structures, making it a high performer even for packaging with high design demands.

There are several reasons that Child-Guard™ packaging is one of the best solutions for industries looking for child guarded zipper technologies:

Child-Guard™ technologies are compliant with ASTM D3475, or the Standard Classification of Child Resistant Packages.

Child-Guard™ performs with multiple film structures to fit with different performance needs.

Child-Guard™ is ergonomic and easy to use.

Child-Guard™ technologies use significantly less materials than the alternative child-resistant packaging solutions.

Child-Guard™ was designed specifically to meet the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, or Title 16 CFR 1700.

Brad Fiedler, Flexaco, Inc.'s regional sales manager, explains how the Child-Guard™ technologies will benefit their clients.

"This type of technology propels customers like ours from rigid packaging to flexible packaging which in and of itself is highly sustainable. There’s an economical saving, a green saving as far as over-the-road cost, cost to manufacture and the energy used to manufacture rigid vs. flexible -- it’s just a win-win among the entire supply chain. We look forward to making this available to our customers in the near future.”
