Eco- and consumer-friendly aerosol dispenser uses compressed air
Innovative aerosol dispenser technology called AirOPack® from IPS Innovative Packaging Solutions AG, Switzerland, developed in a joint venture with Airolux AG, Switzerland, has earned a DuPont Gold
Award. Designed to accommodate liquid, cream, gel, and foam products and to offer an alternative to metal aerosol containers, the strong, lightweight, all-PET-plastic, totally recyclable AirOPack incorporates a patented pressure control device that relies on air in place of more conventional hydrocarbon chemical propellants.
This pressurized dispenser packaging system consists of (1) a two-stage stretch blow-molded plastic container that can be conventionally filled, (2) an injection blow-molded compressed-air chamber, and (3) a novel pressure control device. The components are assembled using laser welding technology.
You’ll find fuller coverage of this award-winning package—including its commercial use by SuperMax, a Dubai-based global leader in shaving razors and gels for men and women—in a future edition of Packaging World.
