Child-resistant caps are important to the pharmaceutical market and the world's smallest child-resistant Polyfoil nozzle tube impressed the Swiss jury - Neopac won the Swiss Star award 2013 in the prototypes category.

Neopac has developed a range of tubes with child-resistant caps for their small diameter tubes. The cap and the nozzle are less than 11 mm. The built-in mechanism only releases the cap if the user pushes and turns the cap at the same time. The new cap fits with the existing nozzle range from Neopac.


The German Institute of Packaging Market Research (IVM) tested and certified the tubes in June 2013.
