Motor oil has traditionally been stored in plastic bottles which typically use around 85% more material than the new Bag-in-Box packaging solution by smurfit kappa.
This design facilitates easier, more precise pouring and reduces the likelihood of spillage. The reinforced bag inside the box is made of a unique combination of polyethylene and nylon films which contains the aroma and prevents the oil particles from migrating. The bag is also very resistant to flex-cracking due to strong seals and tough film.
This new Bag-in-Box product is also very suitable for car repair shops as it eliminates the need to stock space-occupying plastic bottles or the heavy drums. It can be stocked on a rack and connected on a distribution system, with several different types of motor oil on one rack.
It can be delivered flat, the palletisation and transportation of the products are reduced and optimised. Filled Bag-in-Box delivers a 9% space reduction compared to a plastic pail and around 85% less material compared to equivalent rigid plastic bottles. It is very easy to separate the bag from the box, totally recyclable.
