Ampac unveils two new zipper innovations
Ampac has announced two product zipper innovations that it claims offer a unique solution to packaging formats.

The Inno-Lok patented technology is applied transversely to packaging films producing pre-zippered roll stock film which can be used in form, fill and seal packaging applications.

When compared to conventional non-zippered films, Inno-Lok provides a pre zippered roll stock solution with a reclosable feature.

It incurs no reductions in processing and filling speeds, no increase in scrap or set-up time and a savings of up to 25% in zipper material, claim Ampac.

It will be offered on coextruded surface printed films and laminated films, for both barrier and non-barrier end uses. 

Pour & Lok is a foldable zipper applied to film in the side gusset area of the package creating a reclosable pour spout, with only three US companies owning the capability.
