Richmond, Va., March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Liqui-Box, a world leader in flexible liquid packaging solutions, earned a silver award from the Flexible Packaging Association in the technical innovation category for the development of Bar-Asept.
Liqui-Box has won seven times since first entering the annual Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards competition in 2014. The company’s Bar-Asept laminate, commercially available since mid-2018, won this year for the innovative use of aseptic technology.
Bar-Asept is a new adhesive laminate structure for use in aseptic form-fill-seal pouch packaging that is designed to significantly reduce leakers and provide superior barrier performance. High-performance sealants and high-barrier coextrusion layers in Bar-Asept make the laminate extremely durable under demanding processing conditions, even in fitmented applications.
Senior Vice President of Research and Development Greg Gard said: “Next-level packaging integrity was our goal with Bar-Asept. In testing, we achieved a drop-height of more than double the requirement. Sealing through particulates is a significant differentiator. Bar-Asept is an outstanding product, and now we’re delighted to say it’s award-winning.”
Gard believes this award is another example of how Liqui-Box continues to implement a vision of being the leader in liquid packaging systems and solutions around the world.
At Liqui-Box, we’re committed to being the packaging provider from which all good things flow: lower carbon footprints, faster speed-to-market, seamless production, better ideas and most important of all – impenetrable partnerships. By shaping our solutions around customer and sustainability challenges, we’re able to deliver at every level.
Our ingenious liquid packaging outsmarts conventional methods by giving brands a bag that’s tough enough to withstand harsh shipping conditions; is compact enough to shrink the number of trucks on the road; is made of significantly less plastic than its rigid counterparts; and still dispenses perfectly into that milkshake maker or washing machine.
