Durable packaging that champions the environment and helps you go the distance

Solutions_NonFood_Automotive_F

For most automotive liquid producers, sustainability is now at the forefront of their packaging initiatives. Bag-in-box is a lightweight, transport-optimized and low waste packaging alternative that replaces bulky and expensive to produce plastic bottles and drums without compromising on the durability and reliability needed for protecting motor oil, lubricants and car care fluids. The numbers speak for themselves: as an example, 38 kg of CO2 can be saved for every liter of motor oil contained in a 10L (3G) bag-in-box instead of a 10L plastic PET bottle or drum.

Bag-in-box for the automotive industry is designed to be used by dealerships, auto repair shops and quick lube locations that strive to offer a wider range of oil grades, lubricants and specialty fluids but may lack the proper storage space for products packaged in bulky plastic PET bottles or drums.

A single 6-gallon (23L) bag-in-box replaces 24 U.S. quart (1L) bottles of motor oil.

Dispensing oil with bag-in-box taps and fitments is convenient and allows for faster lube servicing and labor efficiencies—you have the ability to fill measuring jugs easily and more hygienically, leaving minimal residual oil behind.

As a leading expert in bag-in-box technology with five decades of experience, Liquibox has the liquid packaging knowledge and solutions to help you go the extra mile.
