Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics says flexible packaging converter, Ampac, is now a licensee of PacXpert Packaging Technology.
Authorized to sell packages in North America, Ampac will produce packages enabled by PacXpert Technology and will sell the packages to their customer base under the Ampac CubePak name.
Dow says PacXpert Technology enables the conversion of large rigid plastic containers to easy-to-carry, flexible packaging options.
The company trademarked the technology as PacXpert after acquiring the global license to the innovative Smart Bottle technology on which PacXpert is founded.
It says the lightweight packaging design offers a fitment closure and integrated ergonomic dual handles, enabling precision pouring, easy reclosing and convenient carrying.
While flexible, PacXpert Technology is shelf stable and can stand upright or on its side once filled.
The visually-transparent packaging allows consumers to see the contents within and the opportunity to print on all four sides.
The containers can ship and store flat when empty, increasing shipping and warehouse efficiency by eliminating Just In Time delivery of rigid containers, and possibly reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
When filled, the pouches form into a cube improving pack density.
When compared to rigid containers, this format uses less material and improves the product to package ratio, says Dow.
