Alcan Inc. announces the launch of GUARDLID, a new aluminium-based medicine packaging providing improved child resistance characteristics. GUARDLID will assist pharmaceutical companies in their compliance with Child Resistance legislation.

'As a solutions provider, Alcan Packaging is always looking for ways to meet and exceed its customers' needs through innovation and the development of value-added products,' said Christel Bories, President and Chief Executive Officer, Alcan Packaging. 'The launch of GUARDLID is another concrete example of how Alcan Packaging strives to be a strategic partner for its customers around the world,' she added.

The material has been fully tested and approved to comply with European child-resistant standards (EN 14375), and conforms to potential new regulations within the European Union. Several major customers have already assessed and approved the structure on their lines, and their new packs will appear on store shelves in the near future.

'Given its benefits in terms of compliance and ease of implementation, GUARDLID is the perfect choice for manufacturers whose products and packs are impacted by the new legislation,' said Michael Rubenstein, President, Alcan Global Pharmaceutical Packaging. 'Having invented the first child resistant blister lidding material, Alcan Packaging strives to offer its customers leading-edge application solutions. Our focus on innovation has led us to develop new products for both child resistant and senior citizen friendly packaging, such as GUARDLID,' he added.
