Aptar releases new liner-free dispensing closure

October 17, 2022  By PrintAction Staff

Aptar Food + Beverage unveils Slide, a new approach for the dispensing closure market. This new offering does not require the application of a foil liner for shelf-stable food products.

“We conducted multiple consumer studies while developing this solution, and in almost every case, we heard that removing the liner is a point of frustration today,” said Matt Schalewski, senior global business development manager at Aptar. “Slide enables consumers to access their product with one opening gesture, delivering a convenient and memorable packaging experience while still protecting product shelf life and reducing the potential for product tampering.”

To eliminate the need for a foil liner, Aptar Food + Beverage developed a patented non-detachable tamper evidence system, which is built into the closure. 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 feature provides product safety by informing consumers whether the package has been previously opened. Additionally, 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 one gesture.

Slide has been tested for use on shelf-stable products. This innovative solution also comes in industry standard dimensions and bottle neck finishes.
