Child-resistant caps not only provide peace of mind for consumers but business as well. With a variety of colors and dispensing options available, these caps are capable of meeting manufacturing needs while also adhering to the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. As many products fall under the PPPA in terms of requiring childproof caps, the caps are available in a range of sizes and dispensers, including both droppers and phenolic brushes.
Child-Resistant Caps Required for Certain Products
Even seemingly harmless items, such as certain vitamins and minerals can be dangerous to ingest. As such, child-resistant bottle caps provide peace of mind for everyone. Non-dispensing child-resistant caps are a very common choice for safety tops and closures, as they can be found on a range of items from pharmaceuticals to bleach. With the growth in popularity of potentially harmful products like vape liquid, however, dropper caps have become a viable option as well.
Can Childproof Caps Be Used for Long-Term Storage?
While child-resistant caps without dispensers are suitable for long-term storage of items, child-resistant dropper caps must get careful consideration as certain oils, such as those used for aromatherapy or cannabis oils, can break down the plastic over time and cause degradation of both the packaging and the product inside. However, the dropper caps are still a viable option for most medical applications.
What Sort of Bottles Can Childproof Caps Be Used With?
In order to ensure the best fit for each child-resistant closure, the caps should only be used with the appropriate size of plastic bottle for the specific caps. Using glass bottles can run the risk of the caps not fitting properly and may jeopardize the integrity of the closures over time, and as such, only plastic bottles are recommended.
