The Benefits of Natralock® Paperboard Packaging
The traditional clamshell package is well-known for its difficulty to open safely and its all-plastic design. Clamshell replacements, such as the Natralock and the H-Loc Trapped Blister, are sustainable packaging solutions that are easier and safer to open, as well as better for the environment. Below, we'll explore the benefits of Natralock paperboard packaging.
- Recycled Paperboard: While most clamshell packages are made with mostly harmful plastic, such as PVC, the majority of the Natralock design consists of recycled paperboard. This helps to reduce plastic production and plastic waste, and requires less energy to manufacture than plastic.
- Easy and Safe to Open: With Natralock, "wrap rage" is no longer an issue. Traditional clamshells often require sharp tools and a great deal of patience to open, resulting in unsafe sharp plastic edges, frustration and even injury. The Natralock opens easily with a pair of household scissors.
- Tamper Resistant: Although easy to open, the tear-resistant paperboard maintains tamper resistance for reduced theft and minimized damage to items.
- Lower Costs: The Natralock's light weight contribute to reduced transportation costs, while fast packaging seals mean increased production. The paperboard design makes the package less dependent on costly oil.
