Innovative and Sustainable Flexible Packaging: May Spotlights

We are so excited to continue sharing the 2021 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition winners! Check out our May spotlights listed below to learn about the benefits of each package, the manufacturers behind the creation, and brands that are using these packages for their products.

Chameleon™ for Tyvek®

Chameleon™ for Tyvek® allows the user to readily evaluate the quality of a seal when used with uncoated Tyvek®. Before opening, the seal shows as a darker color when viewed through the film side. Once the package has been peeled open, a vivid colored seal indicator presents on the Tyvek® with a contrasting white seal indicator on the film. The easy ability for users to identify any seal flaws provides consumers with confidence that the product has not been tampered with. Paxxus, Inc. earned a gold achievement award in expanding the use of flexible packaging for this innovative package. To learn more about the manufacturer, visit their website here
