Child proof bags are designed to prevent children from accessing harmful substances or objects. Here are some types of child proof bags mentioned in the search results:
- Aerosol bags: These bags are often used to package medicines and medical supplies. They create a vacuum seal on the inside of the bag to prevent accidental ingestion and misuse by children. The vacuum seal helps to draw out the air inside the bag to preserve the medicine.
- Anti-choking bags: These bags are designed to prevent children from choking by putting the bag in their mouth or nose. They are vacuum-sealed like vaping bags, but have a small hole that allows children to breathe air without putting the bag in their mouth or nose.
- Flexible packaging bags: These bags are commonly used to package liquids, powders and small particulate substances such as pharmaceuticals and hazardous chemicals. They have a double protective function to prevent children from eating or misusing the contents. The bags can be sealed to prevent accidental ingestion and are made from crush resistant materials to withstand extrusion and stretching.
- Tamper evident bags: These child-resistant plastic bags are designed to be relatively difficult for children to open. They use special closure technology to ensure that children cannot easily access the contents. These bags are made with materials and construction that provide increased safety and protection.
In addition to the above types of pouches, there are other types of child-resistant packaging, such as
- Child-resistant pill bottles with push and twist lids
- Child-resistant tins with push and twist or tamper evident lids
- Child-resistant jars with push and twist lids
- Child-resistant bags with reclosable or zip fasteners
It’s important to note that child-resistant packaging must meet specific regulations and testing requirements. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) regulates child-resistant packaging under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). The packaging must make it significantly more difficult for a child under the age of five to open or to obtain a toxic or harmful amount of the substance within a reasonable time. At the same time, it should not be difficult for a normal adult to use properly.
Child-resistant packaging is tested by having children between the ages of three and five try to open the packaging. The packaging must meet certain criteria, such as not being opened by at least 85% of children before and after a demonstration, and being accessible to 90% of older adults.
At colorfulpackaging, we often use mylar material to make child proof bags, and it is also the most popular material for child-resistant bags on the market. And what are the benefits of mylar material in child safety bags?
