Security without the cost.

Virtuweld looks like a machine welded clamshell, but is closed by hand.

  • Secure, undetectable seal
  • Visually appealing with unique “stitched” appearance
  • Economically hand-sealed for lower production cost
  • Allows for quick response during peak demand without capital expense
  • Available in stock molds or customized to your own specifications
  • Available in post-consumer recycled plastics

Virtuweld has revolutionized packaging security and has become so popular that many customers demand Virtuweld over other clam packs.

Virtuweld was developed as a response to an increasing need for tamper resistant packaging in all retail sectors. After examining the problem, Virtuweld was developed and patented to provide a cost effective way to give additional security to packaging without the hassle and cost of additional sealing processes.

First Choice Packaging is the exclusive North american manufacturer of Virtuweld.  We can use one of our standard platforms and create a custom cavity to fit your product.  This allows us to create custom packaging for you that is quick to produce and very cost effective.

The FCP Virtuweld process:

  1. Choose the size of platform that best suits your product or send us your product and we will recommend a suitable size and give you a quote.
  2. We will make a prototype to the agreed specification for you to do mock-ups, presentations or make any necessary changes.
  3. We will produce a set of top quality aluminum inserts to your final specification to fit within one of our standard platform sizes.

Virtuweld is a conventional clam pack that has been designed so that the back manually clips firmly into the front. The secure closure is then further enhanced by the addition of a stitch-welded effect that completes the illusion that the pack is actually welded.

As well as providing extremely good levels of security, Virtuweld packs can also be customized to allow quick and easy access by the consumer once purchased.
