An intuitive and sensory closure for flexible packaging

Easylock by Aplix® addresses the consumer, retailer, and consumer product companies’ demands for more environmentally friendly packaging. It is is a 100% polyethylene recyclable closure (accredited by Trex®), and is also ideal for reusable bags: it can be opened and closed easily at least 50 times and is also washable.
