Aptar Beauty + Home was recently recognized for its innovative aerosol accessory, Glide, during the Paris Aerosol & Dispensing Awards. These awards highlight technological innovations in aerosol and dispensing systems packaging. This prize is awarded by an independent jury of aerosol and dispensing systems experts representing packaging manufacturers and the media.
Glide is the new Aptar hoodless accessory technology with a slide-to-open capability
Glide is designed for one-hand dispensing and 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. Consumer tests prove that Glide is extremely convenient and users are able to tell at first glance whether Glide is locked or unlocked. 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 provides a fun, interactive accessory using a common gesture, the sliding motion used with digital technology. This gesture will be used as a new locking feature for our new hoodless accessory platform. It engages consumers with a fun, interactive movement and sensory cues.
