Liquibox Unveils VINIflow® Secure Tap With Integrated Tamper Protection

January 18, 2024

Marking a significant milestone in the long-term work on design for recycling, Liquibox, part of SEE (formerly Sealed Air), has unveiled its latest innovation—the VINIflow® Secure dispensing tap with attached tamper protection. This groundbreaking fitment is designed to elevate the recyclability and user experience of bag-in-box and stand-up pouch packaging across the beverage, liquid food and non-food industries.

In line with European regulatory requirements, VINIflow Secure’s tethered design addresses the issue of tamper protection plastic litter by ensuring it stays attached to the dispensing tap at all times. This novel fitment is designed for recycling alongside Liquibox´s recycle-ready bag-in-box flexible packaging, enabling circularity and helping liquid manufacturers achieve their sustainability ambitions*.

Beyond its environmental benefits, VINIflow Secure prioritizes user reliability by eliminating the risk of unintentionally activating product flow. Its versatility makes it suitable for a range of liquid products, such as wine, juice, water, and other fluids with similar viscosity. Available globally in standard and short-back-end versions for both bag-in-box and stand-up pouches, it caters to various industries seeking sustainable packaging solutions.

Precision-manufactured in Slovakia, the patent-pending fitment has successfully undergone real-world trials in the EMEA region, demonstrating its practical success. Consideration for compatibility with existing bag-in-box filling lines was integral to VINIflow Secure’s design, and various customer trials have affirmed that the fitment aligns seamlessly with gripper sets available on the market. Therefore, customers using the original VINIflow can seamlessly transition without additional capital expenditure, reinforcing confidence in Liquibox’s packaging and filling solutions as secure investments for the future. The industrial production of the new dispensing tap is slated for the first quarter of 2024.

Stefan Pfundner, Technical Director EMEA at Liquibox, said: “The launch of VINIflow Secure is an important step in SEE´s efforts to advance sustainability across the value chain. Liquibox is committed to developing the world’s most sustainable bag-in-box packaging solution that reduces littering, food and packaging waste, optimizes logistics, and can be fully recycled where infrastructure is available.”

*The degree of recyclability of the final package depends on the specific product configuration or components intended for recycling and on the scope and availability of appropriate local recycling facilities.
