The child-resistant, senior-friendly blister card solution.

KEYSTONE FOLDING BOX CO. INTRODUCES ECOSLIDE-RX: A CHILD-RESISTANT, SENIOR-FRIENDLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND UNIT-DOSE PACKAGE

Compliance Package is Made from 100% Recyclable Material, Can be Integrated into High-speed Lines

NEWARK, NJ - Keystone Folding Box Company, a manufacturer of paperboard packaging solutions, has introduced Ecoslide-RX, a child-resistant (f=1), senior-friendly compliance package that is the most eco-friendly of its kind on the market. Ecoslide-RX is made from 100% recyclable material, contains no plastic in its secondary packaging and, unlike other paperboard compliance packs, requires minimal film and foil while maintaining an F=1 Child Resistant rating - the highest possible.

Ecoslide-RX enters the market as a solution for prescription products, physician's samples and clinical trial materials that meets and exceeds sustainability objectives adopted by an increasing number of organizations.

The Ecoslide-RX locking mechanism is opened with a thumb press on a release button located on the corner of a major panel of the carton; a process that delivers top-level child resistance while remaining senior-friendly. Inside the outer carton is a film/foil, push-through blister card that slides out when the CR lock is released, yet remains connected to the carton at all times. The assembly process does not require any heat sealing of paperboard.

Ecoslide-RX is also more affordable than most blister packages - in part because it requires no major addition of film/foil beyond the blistered product itself - and can be efficiently produced via high-speed automation at speeds similar to bottling lines.

"The introduction of Ecoslide-RX has the potential to change the way the pharmaceutical market looks at compliance packaging," said Ward Smith, Director of Marketing at Keystone Folding Box Co. "It is the most economical, and environmentally-friendly compliance package available today."

Ecoslide-RX is designed and manufactured by The Keystone Folding Box Company, which has more than a century of expertise in packaging innovation. The new product joins the company's highly-successful line of Key-Pak® and Key-Pak Plus® blister card packaging solutions that are currently in use in the clinical trial and commercial prescription markets.
