Slider solution is the cat’s whiskers

French company Roland Emballages is the first petfood packaging supplier to incorporate Flexico’s tamper-evident resealable Topmatic slider into paper sacks.

The two companies have developed a way of sealing co-extruded Topmatic slider profile to the PE sealing layer of plastic or paper bags during conversion. Opening reveals a tamper-evident coloured membrane that must be pierced to access the contents. The slider cursor reseals after use.

Topmatic profile is delivered on-the-reel with slider in place. To prevent the two profile sides sealing together when applied to the bag, the Topmatic slider features co-extruded ribs on the profile flange.

Flexico is a regular investor in both r&d and specialist packaging machinery, having recently bought a Rovema vertical form, fill, seal machine to further develop its resealable technology.

Roland is supplying the first paper petfood sacks featuring Topmatic sliders to leading French petfood manufacturer Canaillou.
