Aptar Introduces the Glide Dispenser

Glide is Aptar’s new hoodless accessory using the popular glide motion technology for personal care and home care applications.

Create a fun, interactive accessory that uses the most common gesture of today, a the sliding motion, similar to that used for tablets and smartphones. This unique gesture will be used as a new locking feature for our new hoodless accessory platform. It engages consumers with fun, interactive movement and sensory cues.

Glide is designed for one-hand-dispensing. Due to the ergonomics of the hand, Glide can be un-locked with a sideward movement of the thumb and actuated with the index finger. The grooved surface of the generous finger pad enhances ease of use. Consumer tests prove that Glide is shown to be “extremely convenient”. Audible clicks and a covered orifice indicate when the actuator is locked or ready to use. This unique feature provides additional assurance to consumers.

Glide is secure when the package is locked for safe storage and portability. The lockable system with non-removable pieces provides value-added confidence for distribution and transportation before, during and after purchase. The two-color option also enhances brand differentiation and Glide fits on the industry standard one inch mounting cup.

The eye-catching design and new dispensing experience of Glide can be used for personal care and home care applications.

Bring effortless interaction to your pressurized packaging. Slide over to Glide.
