Child Resistant Packaging

August 2016

SKS Bottle & Packaging offers various styles, sizes, and colors of child resistant containers. There are many consumer products that can be harmful if ingested, which is why it is important to consider child resistant packaging options. Choose a child resistant container to safely house medications, cleaning agents, and other potentially toxic items.

Child Resistant Pouches

SKS recently added child resistant pouches to the large selection of child proof containers in black, white, and blue. The larger size pouches come in white and black, have a height of 9 inches, length of 12.25 inches and width of 4 inches allowing them to stand when filled. These mylar bags feature a zipseal that can be opened easily with adult dexterity The tab closure should be pushed up while pulling the zipper to open these pouches. After the pouch has been opened, easily reseal it by sliding the zipper back to the starting position and re-inserting it into its plastic housing. The smaller pouches are 8.5 inches by 6 inches, and available in blue or white. Although these also require adult dexterity, the smaller mylar pouches feature different tabs that simply need to be pushed down, while sliding the zipper to open. Easily reclose these pouches by sliding the zipper back to the starting position. All of these IMPAK child resistant pouches offered by SKS are made of a flexible mylar material designed to meet ASTM D3475 standards, and also test to CFR 1700.20 protocols. Choose the white, black, or blue opaque mylar pouches to suit various child resistant packaging needs from medications to cosmetics.

Low Profile Jars

SKS now offers a new style of low profile child resistant jars available in 2 oz, 4 oz, and 8 oz sizes. They are compact, and feature wide mouths which make for easy filling, and product access. These jars are made of HDPE (high density polyethylene), a lightweight, flexible plastic that has good chemical resistance, and excellent moisture barrier properties. Choose these wide mouth jars for an opaque packaging option that meets CRC protocol when paired with compatible child resistant closures (CRC). The CRC's paired with these jars feature an illustration on the face of the cap directing the end user to push down while turning the cap counterclockwise for easy removal. The PE liner in these caps is a good general purpose liner that offers good chemical resistance against acids, alkalis, solvents, alcohols, oils, cosmetics, and aqueous products. These jars could be a great packaging option for pain relievers, supplements, and cleaning products such as detergents and bleaches. Purchase these jars and caps separately or in bulk quantities for a greater discount.

Straight Sided Jars

In addition to the low profile jars, SKS offers straight sided jars paired with child resistant closures. These child proof containers are offered in an array of sizes, colors, and styles. These varying options could be used to suit packaging needs for personal care products, nutritional supplements, or a range of products that could be potentially harmful to children. White jars with CRC's are available in two different opaque materials, polypropylene and PET. Polypropylene jars feature a good moisture barrier, are very durable, resistant to many chemicals, and are available in 2 oz, 8 oz, 12 oz, and 16 oz sizes. The 12 oz and 16 oz white PET jars have good resistance to heat, with a maximum fill temperature of 160?, and are also resistant to dilute acids, oils, and alcohols. Green and black straight sided jars are also available with child resistant closures in 16 oz sizes. The green jars are made of a transparent PET, and paired with white child resistant caps, while the black jars are made of an opaque PET, and paired with matching black child resistant caps. All of the child proof straight sided jars are paired with black or white ribbed child resistant closures. These containers can be opened by pushing down on the closures and turning counterclockwise simultaneously. All of these jars feature closures with PE foam liners, which are great general purpose liners that offer chemical resistance against acids, alkalis, alcohols, oils, and household cosmetics.

Packaging Tip

Orifice Reducers

Choose orifice reducers for a controlled pour when dispensing products like sauces, oils, dressings, and much more. SKS carries orifice reducers made of LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) which is a lightweight material that has good chemical resistance, a good vapor barrier, and is also stress crack resistant. Orifice reducers are easily applied to a bottle by simply pushing into the opening until secure. Choose sizes ranging from 13 mm to 33 mm, to pair these orifice reducers with products like woozy bottles or a variety of sauce containers.

Product of the Month

White Styrene Deodorant Tubes

SKS added a new style of round, twist up deodorant tubes! These tubes are made of a white polystyrene, which is a hard, but lightweight material. All tubes come with screw caps and plastic disc inserts. These deodorant tubes must be filled from the bottom by placing the container upside down with the cap and disc inserts in place, and the base of the tube off. They can be filled with product up to the plunger (the internal mechanism with three oblong holes which moves product upward). Once the product has solidified, turn it rightside up, remove the matching white cap and clear disc insert, and simply twist the base of the tube to gradually raise the product until it is above the top of the tube and ready for application.
