New STANDCAP Pouch Featuring Aptar’s Sierra Closure

Aptar is excited to launch Sierra, our new, inverted pouch dispensing solution for the STANDCAP Pouch, which brings differentiation and increased functionality to the market. This innovative packaging format offers heightened shelf visibility for brands and a superior packaging experience for consumers. The package provides 99% product evacuation, and eliminates the need for utensils, creating less mess when dispensing. The unique closure and pouch design make this package easy and convenient to store. The STANDCAP Pouch is a great solution for food products like dairy, sauces and condiments, spreads, jellies, honey and salad dressing. It can also be used for beauty and home products such as lotions, shampoo and conditioners, sun care, dish care and automotive.

The Sierra closure by Aptar features a flip-lid with a customizable SimpliSqueeze® valve, which provides controlled dispensing and a clean product cut off. The closure allows for convenient, one-handed opening and closing, and offers stability for the entire package. Additionally, the solution features a built-in, tamper evident pull-ring, aiding in product freshness and safety.

To give customers access to this complete, turnkey solution, Aptar has partnered with Glenroy as the premade pouch supplier. Glenroy leverages Volpak’s converting technology to deliver STANDCAP as a premade pouch, and Viking Masek as the provider of fill and seal equipment.

Featured at PackExpo Las Vegas, September 25-27, Aptar invites you to visit Volpak (C-3800) and Viking Masek (C-5422) to see the new STANDCAP Pouch, featuring Sierra by Aptar!

Quick Flip by Aptar: The Next Generation in Flexible Dispensing

Aptar is excited to announce Quick Flip, a spout solution that has been designed with improved convenience and cleanliness for the stand-up pouch consumer.

This one piece solution featuring a tamper evident tear band is intuitive, easy to use and enables one-handed convenience with its flip-top lid.  The design directly improves the consumer experience by eliminating the need for a liner, while giving consumers the confidence that the lid is closed with an audible “click”. This innovative solution can be combined with Aptar’s proprietary valve technology, SimpliSqueeze®, to create the perfect flow control. While providing consumers with an accurate dispense, SimpliSqueeze® also helps to keep the package clean by offering product cut-off, and preventing product build-up around the spout area.

With its unique design, Quick Flip promotes product differentiation, making the packaging stand-out on the shelves and effectively attracting consumers’ attention. Key food categories that benefit from using the Quick Flip spout include: sauces and condiments, jams and honey, among other product categories.

The BAP® Experience: Excite, Engage, Repeat

Aptar’s BAP® (Bonded Aluminum to Plastic) technology delivers the ultimate packaging experience that can drive repeat purchases

Brand loyalty is the ultimate goal of brand owners around the globe, but it is not always easy to achieve. Often, brand owners believe that using innovation to create a differentiated package that stands out and attracts consumers’ attention, might be enough to establish a long-term relationship with the brand. However, differentiation is only the first piece of the puzzle.

To truly conquer consumers’ hearts and loyalty, innovation also needs to deliver an enjoyable experience that makes them remember your product. This second piece of the puzzle, a memorable and positive experience, is ultimately what creates an emotional connection between consumers and your brand, making them crave that experience again and again.

This is exactly what BAP® does. No matter what market you are in, BAP® creates exciting opportunities to accentuate your brand, engaging consumers with a unique and enjoyable experience, and driving repeat purchases.
