Presto Products Company featured its Reduced Scale Slider (RS Slider) technology at PACK EXPO East 2017. This premium closure is less costly than traditional sliding closures while still offering industry-leading Slide-Rite technology.

“The RS Slider offers something new to the market for lighter-weight products in flexible pouches,” Brad Hansen, Presto president, said. “The RS Slider is a convenient option offering extended freshness.”

The RS Slider, which was originally designed for use on lighter-weight products and smaller packages such as shredded cheeses, frozen vegetables, and confectionery foods, will now also be meeting demand in the pet food aisle.

Other featured Presto Products closures include:

Slide-Rite Child-Guard

This is the first-ever child-resistant slider for flexible packaging that meets Title 16 CFR 1700 of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) with ASTM D3475 listing from ASTM International. The industry response to Child-Guard has been very strong, and the closure can currently be found on the major consumer brand, Tide. Presto recently launched the consumer-focused website to educate consumers about household product safety and provide useful tips for parents. #GuardIt

Slide-Rite Ergonomic Slider

Designed for hooded flexible packages requiring a low-profile slider, the ergonomic design reduces drag force and makes sliding easy. Possible applications include frozen foods, cheese and dairy, dried fruits and snacks, consumer household products, and deli meats.

Fresh-Lock Click ‘N Lock Sensory Zipper

This sensory zipper ensures a secure closure and product freshness with an audible noise that lets consumers know when the package is opened and securely closed. The noticeable texture between the double zippers can be felt as the bag closes, providing sensory feedback and reassuring the consumer that the bag is closed. Possible applications include foods such as cheese, pet food and treats, pharmaceuticals, chemical, and lawn and garden. Unlike hook and hook or hook and loop closures, Fresh-Lock’s Click ‘N Lock Sensory Zipper can be used in applications where product freshness is important.
