Quadpack is the originator of a family of all-wood locking systems.
International beauty packaging manufacturer and supplier Quadpack has used its expertise in wood to make it functional. Woodacity is a new line of closure systems for perfume packaging, each stopper of which is made from a single piece of sustainably sourced wood.
A plastic insert is no longer necessary. An international patent has been filed. “Our experts were able to efficiently mechanize wood,” explains Pierre-Antoine Henry, Category Manager at Quadpack. Woodacity promotes this natural material beyond aesthetics to become a fully-fledged functional component of beauty packaging. This all-wood innovation is the first of its kind, bringing lasting added value to beauty brands. "
Woodacity offers the same functional properties and stability as plastic, while providing the long-lasting and aesthetic qualities of wood. Its strict industrial process guarantees excellent performance, from storage under controlled conditions, through drying and shaping, to lacquering and decoration. The result is an astonishing range of mono-material closures that add true natural luxury to each bottle of perfume.
Three systems are available, all made in Europe in the Quadpack Wood factory using wood from sustainably managed forests:
- Solo Snap: A world-wide patented snap-on cap featuring a unique interior rib pattern and secure 'click' closure.
- Solo Push: A world-wide patented friction-fit cap that closes the container with a push.
- Solo Turn: A threaded cap with screw closure, perfectly matched to the Regula glass jar by Quadpack, also made in Europe.
Woodacity was conceived as the result of a two-year research and development project to transform wooden perfume caps into functional packaging components. A team of designers, engineers and technicians studied the material in different conditions, shapes and combinations at Quadpack Wood, in order to realize the first three locking systems available today. Other variants are currently in development.
The complete Woodacity range is available now for custom projects. Solo Turn is also part of the Quadpack catalog as a Q-Line product. Other Woodacity formats will be available as Q-Line products.
