We’re proud to provide high-quality premade pouches from custom-printed rollstock. Our industry-leading capabilities in preformed pouches and bags allow us to offer unique features and technologies. ProAmpac also specializes in small run capability for new product introductions and specialty packaging applications.

When it comes to ensuring your product is protected, it takes more than the material - reclosing the packaging matters too. From press-to-close zippers to specialty closures, ProAmpac can meet a variety of flexible packaging needs.

Press to Close Zippers

We offer all of the latest press to close zippers, which are the standard in reclosable stand up pouches. Whether it’s a 3-side seal pouch, stand up pouch with an inserted or plowed-in gusset, or even a Quadflex pouch, we have the right zipper to easily reclose and contain the product.

Hook-to-Hook Closure

The self-mating hook-to-hook closure is designed specifically for easy opening and reclosure, precise alignment is not required. Being made from food-grade, heat-sealable polyethylene material, designed to be sealed on film, these closures are ideal for a variety of dry foods and pet treats packaging options.

Features include:

  • Easy-open and resealable
  • Rigid grips facilitate opening
  • Precise alignment of zipper not required
  • Minimal pressure to close
  • Contaminant-resistant
  • Readily seals through powders and fine particles
  • Allows for numerous openings and closings
E-Z Zip

The Smart and Innovative Design of E-Z Zip. So Simple. So Smart.

E-Z ZIP Recloseable Pouches feature a unique pull-tab opening that allows consumers to pull away a thin tear strip on the front of a flexible pouch to access the recloseable zipper. The package zipper can then be pulled open to dispense the product and pressed closed to reseal the bag.

Features include:

  • Zipper closure is accessible without having to tear off or damage the header
  • A simple way to open packages without causing ragged tears, damaging the zipper, or requiring scissors to cleanly open the top of a pouch
  • Packaging design and branding are able to remain within the header
  • Improved filling and production efficiencies – filling through the unsealed pouch opening as if there were no zipper in place
CRREO – Child Resistant Reclosable Easy Open Packaging

Our CRREO child-resistant pouches have been used globally in various medical, clinical, agricultural and consumer & personal home care applications.

CRREO utilizes several patented features, including Slider-Guard™ child-resistant slider, which is the first-ever child-resistant slider for flexible packaging. While it is difficult for children; it is very easy for adults to open.

The CRREO pouch material cannot be torn and has gone through exhaustive testing with children and adults under the testing requirements of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act and has been approved by the CPSC and EPA under the classification of ASTM D3475-08, Type XIA.
