Solution Spotlight: Tear Resistant Cards

Many of our partners ask us to help enhance their product security through packaging. We recommend Tear Resistant paperboard packaging for a variety of industries, including electronics, beauty, and personal care.

Tear Resistant Cards combine a highly durable Natralock® paperboard with a thermoformed blister to protect your product from theft and damage. Tear Resistant Cards are made with paperboard that can contain up to 30% recycled content, uses less plastic than traditional clamshell packaging and features a compact blister for product display.


Sensible Security at a Sensible Cost

  • More consumer friendly: Easier and safer to open than traditional plastic clamshells
  • Seals on standard heat or RF sealing equipment for faster seal times and reduced energy use.
  • Responsible design reduces plastic content up to 80%, and reduces packaging weight 40-50% on average. Blisters can be easily separated so that the predominant paperboard component can be recycled by consumers.

Material Options Provide Variety and Value

  • Natralock® Resist + paperboard is engineered for applications requiring the Elmendorf tear test specification. The tear strength of the paperboard remains constant even after a tear has been initiated.
  • Natralock® Resist paperboard is designed for items required to meet specifications established by the Graves tear test method. The paperboard is extremely difficult to tear without first initiating a nick with a sharp object or scissors, and uses a special construction for a better consumer experience.
  • Natralock® UltraSeal paperboard offers the substrate’s inherent tear properties and features WestRock Easy Seal® technology. UltraSeal provides the most economical solution for minum security packaging applications.
