Ideal for powders and particulates, Zip-Pak’s Powder-Proof™ zipper features a patented evacuation port technology which eliminates clogged zippers and provides easy, secure resealing.
Products such as flour, sugar, and grains can prevent standard press-to-close zippers from being securely resealed, but the innovative Powder-Proof™ zipper is designed with a channel for powder or particulate residue to fall backwards into the package instead of blocking the zipper channels.
Made of low-density polyethylene (LDPED), Powder-Proof™ zippers are available in various designs for use on most pouch converting machines, horizontal form fill seal machinery, and vertical form fill seal machinery.
The EASY-LOCK hook-to-hook closure provides audible and tactile feedback while being pressed closed, providing users with assurance that their package is fully sealed. Consisting of food-grade, heat-sealable polyethylene, this innovative closure can be easily reclosed without being hindered by residues from powders or particulates.
