The Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) requires many industries to incorporate child-proof bags in their packaging. This ensures no child under the age of five is at risk of ingesting potentially harmful products, particularly prescription medications.
Businesses and customers alike benefit from the use of child-resistant mylar bags. And, in some highly regulated industries child-resistant bags are a legal requirement. Knowing which child-proof mylar bag is best for your company and products is an important decision.
Flexible packaging is any package that has an easily manipulated shape. Many pouches and bags are flexible packaging because you can change their shape based on the product inside. Different products – solids vs. liquids – have different packaging requirements which also determines which mylar bags are best. Green Earth has a wide range of options for wholesale child-resistant bags.
Compared to jars, bottles, or canisters, child-resistant mylar bags hold up incredibly well during transit. Child-resistant flexible pouches are frequently easier to handle and store, more convenient to carry, and sometimes more affordable than jars or other canisters. As such, child-resistant bags are the top packaging choice for a majority of companies across widely ranging industries.
Child-resistant mylar bags are also a top preference for consumers. Child-resistant flexible pouches are designed to be tough for kids to open while still being easy for adults and seniors to open. Before buying wholesale child-resistant bags, it’s important to confirm their effectiveness and functionality. This will help you avoid any unnecessary slowdown in your business from ordering the wrong packaging bags.
For long-term storage, a child proof Mylar bag performs exceptionally well. Additional features of child-resistant or tamper evident packaging is its ability to conceal scent, control moisture, and airtight resealable zippers. Many products can easily lose weight through evaporation if not stored properly. Using quality child-resistant packaging bags helps keep moisture intact.
Child-proof mylar bags are also very durable which makes them desirable for transporting long distances. Unlike glass jars (as great as they are), child-resistant bags are not susceptible to breakage.
What Are Wholesale Child-Resistant Bags?
A child-resistant, tamper-evident bag is packaging that is difficult for children five-years-old or younger to open. However, the packaging should be easy for adults and seniors to open. Child-resistant packaging undergoes rigorous testing before being given the green light to be advertised and used commercially as child-proof bags. Child-proof pouches have a high tensile strength and are chemically stable.
Groups of 50 to 200 children, not more than 51 months old, are given 10 minutes to open a package. For the first five minutes, the children are allowed to try opening the package without any help. After this, they are shown how to open the packaging and permitted to use their teeth if necessary. If more than 80 percent of these children can successfully open the package, it is considered to have failed the child-resistant test.
That being said, the packaging must be easy for seniors to open. At least 90 percent of a group of adults between 50 and 70 years old must be able to open the package within 5 minutes without any difficulty and they must also be able to reseal it with ease. If child-resistant packaging is too difficult for an adult to open or too easy for a child to open, it is deemed unacceptable.
What Types Of Child-Resistant Mylar Bags Are Available?
Child-proof bags have been made to prevent ingestion of unwanted substances among children to avoid serious health complications. To achieve this, child-resistant flexible pouches have been meticulously designed by factoring in numerous key aspects.
Green Earth has a range of options for bulk child-resistant bags. Our child-resistant bags come in black, white, matte black, and matte white. All of the child-proof bags have been designed with a high barrier material (foil and quad-layer plastic) that protects the contents from moisture, oxygen, and light. Additionally, all of our wholesale child-resistant bags are ASTM and CPSC certified child-resistant approved packaging. Mylar vacuum seal bags are widely considered to be one of the most effective and protective packages.
There are two closure options: Pinch N Pull or Pinch N Slide. In both cases, the bags require the use of both hands to open or close. The coordination required to open the child-proof bag is what qualifies them as child-resistant.
Pinch N Pull is a lifetime child-resistant closure feature on these awesome heat seal aluminum foil bags. “Lifetime child resistant” means the child-resistant feature will work over and over after the initial opening of the container. They’re heat sealed for tamper evidence and feature a “to open, pinch and pull” closure. The bags have helpful visual instructions to assist customers in where to “pinch and pull.” We have both opaque and vista options, this bag collection is one of the few that truly works for everyone.
There are three generations of Pinch N Slide bags available. Our first generation Pinch and Slide Mylar vacuum seal bags are lifetime child-resistant and come in glossy black or glossy white.
Our second generation of Pinch and Slide bags is aesthetically similar to the first generation (square corners, straight edges, glossy black or white finishes) but has a heat sealed section above the zipper closure, which makes the bags tamper-evident.
The third generation of Pinch and Slide storage bags retain the certified child-resistant, tamper-evident qualities of the second generation bags, but come in smooth, velvety matte black or white. We also rounded the corners and softened the edges of the third generation bags.
Our Pinch N Slide bags come in sizes ranging from 1g to 56g and in combinations of fully opaque or vista. All but the two smallest Pinch N Slide bags are gusset bags – when filled, they stand up on their own.
The second and third generations of Pinch N Slide bags have the added tamper evident feature of heat sealing above the zipper or just at the top of the bag.
We also carry several amazing Dymapak Mylar bags that are child-resistant and tamper evident. DymaPak double zipper mylar pouches come in black, white, brown kraft, vista, and fully opaque options.
Lastly, we also carry pharmaceutical packaging. These Rx bags offer a design widely used in clinics, hospitals, and pharmacies. Kraft Bags offer a printed Rx symbol on the front with "Thank You" printed on the back of the bag.
Are Child Proof Bags Recyclable?
Most flexible packaging uses plastic and metallic materials which makes it difficult to recycle. However, our child-resistant bags in bulk are all fully reusable and we do, in fact, make a line of fully recyclable “mylar” bags. The recyclable pouches are made from sturdy LDPE, which mimics the secure, durable, and reusable nature of mylar, but is actually highly recyclable.
Providing effective child-resistant packaging can protect you, your company, and your customers from lawsuits. Making those bags sustainable can help you reduce your general impact on the planet. Our bags enable you to take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of your products. Lifetime child-resistant bags are reusable which will help your customers save money in the long run.
