Specialty Closures

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

  • 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

    ProAmpac offers INNO-LOK pre-zippered film. This rollstock has a transversely attached re-closable zipper and provides the flexibility to run both reclosable and regular material on packaging lines without any changes to existing equipment.

    INNO-LOK pre-zippered film running on conventional FFS packaging equipment is comparable to conventional non-zippered films
