New brand-matched resealable zippers debut

July 2, 2014

Elplast (, manufacturer of re-sealable press-to-close zippers, is introducing its new color zipper range at Expo Pack Mexico. 

The European company, which will start manufacturing in the US later this year, is responding to strong demand in the region as the Mexican market continues to show strong growth in resealable, flexible packaging.

EL-ZIP Color® zippers are available in over 100 shades to enable brand owners to complement package design and provide a differentiating factor on resealable packs.

The company also offers a matching service to co-ordinate closure with brand identity colors.  Distinguishing markers and even brand logos can also be incorporated into the resealable closure to identify genuine product and guard against imitation and counterfeit goods.

Chad Rupert, Elplast US president comments: “We manage the whole zipper process in-house including design, die manufacture and extrusion which gives us flexibility to develop unique products for customers, quickly. Leading brand owners are looking for new ways to differentiate and build their brand and our personalized resealable zippers are helping them achieve this”

 The colored and branded zippers are available in many different types and materials and include single, double and triple profiles. The closures can be used with all commonly-used packaging machinery, packaging processes and package types.
