Upon first opening the package, the tamper evidence band visually slides from the “closed” to the “open” position and locks into the lid of the closure. This is a benefit to both brands and consumers as this breakthrough feature provides product safety by informing consumers whether the package has been previously opened. Additionally, Aptar Food + Beverage’s Slide provides a much more convenient packaging experience as consumers no longer need to unscrew the closure, remove and dispose the liner, and put the closure back onto the bottle before dispensing the product. With Slide, all these steps are replaced by only one simple and intuitive opening gesture.
In addition to ensuring consumer safety and convenience, brand owners are also seeking packaging alternatives that align and enable them to deliver on their sustainability commitments. Since the foil liner is not considered to be recyclable today, removing this component reduces the amount of packaging waste. Aptar’s lifecycle analysis comparing Slide to a closure with a foil liner showed that liner-free packaging reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 16%.
Slide has been tested for use on shelf-stable products. This solution also comes in industry standard dimensions and bottle neck finishes.
