CDF exhibiting flexible packaging at the PPC Spring Meeting

CDF Corporation, a global company that specializes in the manufacture and sale of high quality pail, drum, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, will exhibit bag-in-box liners and drum and pail products at the Petroleum Packaging Council’s Spring Meeting and Tradeshow.

The Petroleum Packaging Council’s Spring Meeting and Tradeshow will be held March 16th to the 18th at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel in Tampa, Florida.

CDF has a wide range of flexible products to satisfy the needs of product manufacturers and producers. CDF’s liners for intermediate bulk containers, drums and pails provide outstanding performance in critical lubricant applications.

The Cheertainer is an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional packaging.  Its unique form-fit bag-in-box design minimizes packaging requirements and maximizes transportation and storage efficiency, providing an eco-smart solution.

CDF has the industry’s most comprehensive selection of drum and pail liners and accessories. Our products range from tough, leak-proof, vacuum-formed inserts, to economical, round-bottom liners to the special protection of barrier-film liners. These liners and inserts can be used with many chemical applications, such as adhesives, automotive, coatings, detergent, greases, ink, lubricants, paint, sealants and soap.

The Smart Pail 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 Smart Pail is inserted into a specifically designed corrugated box and stacked 48 units per 40” x 48” pallet for transportation. The end-user simply peels open the peel reseal label, cuts the tamper evident film and pumps, scoops or pours the contents. The peel-reseal lidding can be open and closed multiple times. The Smart Pail is easily collapsed – ready for disposal or recycling. Four collapsed Smart Pails fit into one 5 gallon pail – saving space, time and the environment!

CDF exhibiting range of flexible packaging solutions at the ILMA Management Forum

CDF Corporation, a leading manufacturer of drum, pail, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, will present Cheertainer® bag in box, Smart Pail™, IBC formfit liners and drum and pail liners at the Independent Lubricants Manufacturers Association’s Management Forum.

The Independent Lubricants Manufacturers Association’s Management Forum will be held April 18th through the 20th in Carlsbad, CA. The management forum is three days of networking, informative sessions, committee meetings and the opportunity for customers and suppliers to meet; over 300 attendees are anticipated.

CDF has a wide range of flexible products to satisfy the needs of product manufacturers and producers. CDF’s liners for intermediate bulk containers, drums and pails provide outstanding performance in critical lubricant applications.

Our most popular IBC liner is the form-fit liner. Formfit liners are manufactured to form fit the internal shape of your intermediate bulk container. Form-fit IBC (cube-shaped) liners provide high performance in critical applications, such as top-fill applications using a bridge or automated filler; containers with no access doors for placing a liner at the bottom; high speed fills and viscous products that would get caught in the folds of pillow-shaped liners.

The Smart Pail is an environment-friendly alternative to plastic pails. The Smart Pail’s modern design consists of a cube-shaped, semi-rigid, flexible vacuum-formed plastic liner with the option of a hermetically sealed lid and/or snap-on plastic cover, corrugated box and corrugated lid.

CDF Cheertainer gets the UN Nod of approval for Europe

Bag in box packaging has been around for over 50 years, in those fifty years BIB has become well established in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. However, within the last two years BIB has introduced itself in the lubricant industry; the reception was limited and was not seen as a serious contender for packaging aggressive product like those of the lubricant industry.

Most recently, CDF Europe and European corrugated partners have developed a bag-in-box package specifically for the lubricant and chemical industry. This is also the first BIB package that is certified for UN transport.

Marco Dariol, the CDF Europe Technical Director states that his R&D team worked closely with the box manufacturers to meet exact needs that are required by both the UN test and the markets. The result was a final box design coated with polyethylene terephthalate on the outside. The final product was a product with the strength and durability of a rigid package but the sustainability benefits of BIB.

The box has now been tested in accordance with the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. The test ensures that the product is able to be transports under the most extreme conditions and withstand the conditions. The package has now been approved for ten to twenty liters sizes for the Hazardous Goods Classifications Groups 2 and 3.

One of the challenges faced in plastics packaging, explains Dariol, is when the temperature is reduced to -18 degrees Celsius. He explains, “The bag is filled with liquid containing antifreeze and subjected to freezing temperatures for over 24 hours.” At this point the bag is frozen while the liquid inside is fluid, the bag is then dropped from 1.2 meters. Dariol continues, “This is a tough test for plastic because it becomes brittle, but every bag passed.”

There are many reasons to switch to BIB, one being the improved environmental protection, sustainability, ergonomics and cost savings. The CDF Europe Cheertainer is targeting industrial and consumer sectors such as cleaning chemicals, detergents, lubricants, general chemicals, paints and coatings. The bag is capable of dispensing many fluids, and is and improvement on former designs, the bag fits securely into the box which leads to the distribution of hazardous material more evenly.

The Cheertainer bag reduces plastic consumption and in return lessens the amount of plastic in landfills. This is a reduction of nearly 90 percent, compared to 20 liter rigid packaging. Furthermore, its flat design while shipping reduces transportation and handling costs nearly 20 times over jerry cans. As a result, it can reduce the number of trucks on the road, and in time fuel consumed and greenhouse gases emitted.
