Overwrap package technology

January 9, 2007


Zip-Pak developed a packaging format featuring resealable slider technology built into the fin seal of an overwrap-style package. The new pouch format enables opening and resealing down the center of overwrap packages for a wider opening and easier access to contents.  The package offers an easy-open strip above the slider profile for initial bag opening in one step without the need for scissors. The peel-seal feature below the slider profile acts as a hermetic barrier to extend product shelf life and provides consumers with the security of a tamper-evident seal.
