The new range from Quadpack, CANVAS Airless, offers the ability to explore never-before-seen shapes in airless products, enabling customisation with minimal lead time.
Made using patented bag-in-bottle technology, CANVAS Airless is a proprietary airless container system with a collapsible pouch.
The bag-in-bottle is an evolution of the bi-injection blow moulding technology acquired by Quadpack in 2019. Developed in conjunction with Inotech, the two-phase process lowers investment and reduces development time compared with bespoke piston airless packs.
The idea is for preforms to be bi-injection moulded at Quadpack’s airless manufacturing centre in Germany and stocked in EMEA, the Americas and Asia Pacific, to be blown in a single pass at point of sale in the desired shape.
The packs form part of Quadpack’s QLine portfolio of smart, modular solutions, delivered in the region, for the region.
“CANVAS Airless provides a blank canvas for creative design,” said Quadpack’s Head of Market Development, Pierre-Antoine Henry.
“With one mould for infinite shapes, it enables greater freedom of expression. Brands can choose oval, square, convex, concave and other forms – and all without additional outlay or time delay.
“It sets the new standard in airless packaging, offering accessible added value, along with all the benefits of airless technology.”
The pumps can be used at any 360° angle, while actuating the bulk with minimal waste; CANVAS Airless has a restitution rate of 97%.
As a bi-injected, two-layer, pouch-based pack, CANVAS Airless uses 15% less plastic than piston airless equivalents and it can be made with a choice of materials.
The QLine range comes with an LLDPE pouch and PET outer bottle as standard, both recyclable materials. Current outer options include rPET and PETG, while inner options include Surlyn.
