The Smart Pail, a plastic pail replacement system, was developed to offer a more sustainable and cost effective system for transporting semi-viscous, solids and some liquids traditionally shipped in plastic pails. The Smart Pail is a semi-rigid, flexible vacuum-formed plastic liner with a unique wide-mouth laminated peel-reseal lidding film structure offering tamper evidence, easy open-close, excellent oxygen barrier and efficient disposal.

The bag in box liner is the ideal packaging solution for chemical, food, beverage and cosmetic applications ranging in size from 1 liter to 25 liters. CDF offers both form-fit and pillow styles to meet your entire bag in box needs. BIB flexible packaging offers many benefits, such as excellent quality due to superior seam strength and there is no foaming or splashing because the package fills without air.

The EZ-Flo Packaging/Dispensing System is an environment-friendly dispensing alternative to traditional squeeze, pump and spray bottles. The EZ-Flo‘s innovative dispensing system uses patent pending technology to dispense products of various viscosities without the assistance of gravity. The system is cost effective, reducing waste, time and labor, while improving overall productivity.

The Air-Assist® liner allows the user to realize a more complete evacuation of their product. Less residual product is left inside the liner, resulting in savings to the user. Air-Assist liners are specifically designed for high viscosity products.

Pack Expo tradeshows aim to advance the processing and packaging industry around the world. You can expect to find thousands of engaged attendees, interactive education, and the latest technology and innovations in processing, packaging, and pharmaceutical lifecycle solutions.
