CDF exhibited flexible packaging at Pack Expo

CDF, manufacturer of liquid packaging products and solutions that meet customers’ environmental goals, exhibited at Pack Expo Oct 31-Nov 3, 2010, Booth# 4169, North Hall.

CDF introduces new fitment for plastic totes

 The unique 3” discharge assembly was designed for fast dispense from plastic knock down intermediate bulk containers. The 3 inch discharge assembly consists of a 3 inch gland with membrane, a plug, a membrane cutter and a fitment adaptor. The clips on the discharge assembly allow the fitment to be attached directly onto the bin resulting in a secure and sturdy dispense. Standard 3 inch fitments have no way of attaching onto a bin, resulting in poor dispense fitment location which causes difficulty during product dispense.

“This 3 inch discharge assembly offers a superior solution for dispensing viscous liquids in collapsible totes,” stated CDF IBC Accounts National Sales Manager Phil Lanier.

CDF eco-smart packaging solutions

Since 1971, CDF has been an industry leader in sustainable packaging. Decades ago, we launched the 55 gallon drum liner. For the first time, this 55 gallon steel drum liner allowed drums to be reused, eliminating cleaning costs and landfill waste.

In the 1980’s CDF introduced round bottom technology to manufacture economical, lighter weight liners and barrier films for oxygen, moisture and hot filling applications. These innovations permitted the outer rigid container to be easily reused or recycled.

CDF’s intermediate bulk container liners were introduced in the 1990’s to reduce the need for expensive rigid packaging. With the use of our IBC liners, CDF’s customers are able to reduce transportation costs of rigid containers. The patented design maximized product efficiency, allowing the customer to get the most product possible out of the container.

CDF continues to be a pioneer in introducing product breakthroughs that result in environmental benefits and reduce customer cost.

The Cheertainer bag in box is an environmentally-friendly, alternative to traditional packaging. Its form-fit, square design provides an eco-smart bag in box option; its reduced plastic consumption minimizes packaging requirements, while maximizing transportation and storage efficiency.

The Smart Pail is a semi-rigid, flexible vacuum-formed plastic liner with a hermetically sealed plastic lid and/or snap-on plastic cover, corrugated box and corrugated lid. Due to its design, the Smart Pail reduces plastic consumption by 76% and is able to achieve one extra skidded layer during transport than standard rigid pails, equating to 33% more transportation and warehousing efficiency.

CDF exhibits flexible packaging at Aseptipak

CDF Corporation, a leading manufacturer of drum, pail and intermediate bulk container liners and flexible packaging, will be attending the 2009 Aseptipak Conference to exhibit CDF’s innovative aseptic bag-in-box, intermediate bulk container liners and single-serve retail pouches, while informing attendees of their aseptic benefits and unique product solutions.

Aseptipak 2009 will be held October 26-27 at the InterContinental Hotel in Chicago, IL. A global forum on aseptic processing, filling and packaging, the conference will include presentations by industry leaders and showcases of new product developments.

Representing CDF will be Steve Gosling, Technical Director of New Product Development and Dave Christian, Regional Sales Manager. Gosling, with over 30 years of management experience, has covered a wide array of applications throughout the packaging industry. He is responsible for the areas of product management, engineering and new product development for CDF. Christian has 22 years experience in the industrial plastic container and liner industry and brings with him expertise in new product sales and development within the flexible packaging industry.

CDF has a wide range of aseptic products to suit the needs of product manufacturers and producers. For large volume operations, CDF’s high-capacity aseptic intermediate bulk container liners provide outstanding performance in critical food applications, such as high and low acid products, tomato, fruit juice and any other food product requiring aseptic packaging.

The Cheertainer, CDF’s innovative form-fit bag-in-box, provides an aseptic solution to small volume needs. Ranging in size from 5 to 20 liters, the Cheertainer is UN certified and manufactured with CDF1 Smart Seal Technology, ensuring the ultimate reliability of the package.

CDF’s most recent product addition is the Cheer Pack, a flexible spouted single-serve retail pouch serving the food and beverage, chemical and cosmetic industries. The Cheer Pack is currently being sold throughout Asia and Europe in annual quantities of up to 1.5 billion and has recently made its North American debut. Users requiring aseptic production have the option of gamma ray treatment or oxygen peroxide sanitation to properly cleanse the package. Information on filling equipment, technology and packaging will be readily available in addition to the expertise of CDF representatives.

CDF will display aseptic solutions and will feature product samples, fitments and other interactive programming at Aseptipak 2009.
