The BarrelPaq™ double-gusseted standup pouch takes the bag-in-box concept to a new level, the co. reports. FlexSource™ USA, CLP Packaging Solutions and ITW Fastex have developed a patented pouch structure featuring a specialized ITW tap. Available in 1.5-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-L capacities, the pouch eliminates the outer paperboard box and uses a high-barrier performance laminate, with or without foil in its composition. Offers sturdy dispensing performance and comes with a choice of assorted high-performance taps, including ITW's Tru-seal® and Unitap® fitments. Can be filled on standard bag-in-box packaging lines, or single-, dual- and four-lane fill-tap machines supplied by PSG ABT by Abtech. Inhibits bacteria and infestation and can be retorted and aseptically packaged.
