Paint, Coatings & Varnishes
Quality painting made easy with durable, environmentally conscious packaging
At Liquibox, we deliver innovative flexible packaging to keep your water-based paints, coatings, inks and wood-preserving varnishes protected while minimizing product waste and environmental impact. Bag-in-box and pouches are the ideal alternative to plastic jerrycans or tin cans—they are lighter weight, provide a longer shelf life after opening, are safe and easier to dispense, and are more practical and less messy for the consumer. In terms of CO2 emissions, paint bag-in-box represents only a 10% carbon footprint of aluminum cans of the same size. Whether you are manufacturing bulk coatings for industrial use or looking for user-friendly and safe packaging for paints for home applications, our flexible packaging will keep your products protected throughout the supply chain.
Bag-in-box and pouches are an excellent packaging for both home improvement retail shops as well as the e-commerce channel. The box’s large printable surface will allow your brand to stand out on retail shelfs. Boxed paint provides the right size shipping solution for e-commerce distribution—no secondary cardboard packaging or bubble wrap is required, plastic caps are not exposed preventing damage or leaks and due to its already cubed design it takes up less space which means additional loads of product can fit on fewer delivery trucks.
Bags & films for paint, ink, coatings & varnishes
Bag-in-box packaging tackles the problem of wasted product as the air-tight bag prevents the paint, ink, varnish or coating from drying up for as long as two years after opening. This allows users to dispense just the right amount and keep the rest for later use without worrying about a crust forming on the top of the product.
Our robust film structures for paint, coatings and varnishes deliver superior drop protection, flex crack, puncture and tear resistance and long-distance shipping durability. We offer metPET laminate, EVOH with PE layering and biaxially-oriented nylon (BON) laminated structures.
Our bags provide maximum product protection and up to 99% product evacuation.
Liquibox offers a wide range of standard bag sizes from 1L (0.25G) to 1400L (370G) as well as customizable options. Our closed system flexible bags help to prevent unwanted contact with industrial liquids which keeps the users safe.
Fitments & dispensing taps for paint, ink, coatings & varnishes
Our wide variety of fitments and taps ensure we have the right dispensing solution for your industrial product and application. Our dispensing taps for commercial and retail offerings provide safety and optimized directional flow for convenient, single-handed pouring or dispensing by the end-user. Our user-friendly fitment designs provide greater cleanliness with quick and precise dispensing without dripping or glugging.
Individual testing will need to be performed to assess the feasibility of our recommended fitments and dispensing taps depending on your product’s viscosity, stiction and desired flow characteristics.
Bag-in-box filling equipment for paint, ink, coatings & varnishes
Our bag-in-box filling machines offer reliable, cost-effective and high-productivity filling to the non-food industry. These compact fillers have the ability to adapt to a large range of dispensing fitments and bag size changes quickly and easily.
Pouch film for paint, ink, coatings & varnishes
Pouches for paint, ink, coatings and varnishes are not only a convenient, compact and lightweight packaging solution for product testing and sampling but they are also the ideal option for e-commerce. We offer a variety of durable film technologies that protect your products from oxygen and UV lights while ensuring superior product quality and safety. Our pouch film offerings include metPET with PE laminate, clear EVOH with PE and biaxially-oriented nylon (BON) laminate, metPET with PE laminate, with optional printing.
