The Bag on Valve consists of a rolled-up multi-layered flexible pouch attached to an aerosol valve. In the production of a the product, compressed air or nitrogen is charged into the can, and an aerosol valve with the bag attached is crimped onto the container. The formulation is forced through the aerosol valve stem to fill the bag. When the spray button is pressed, the product is squeezed out the bag by the compressed air/nitrogen, which creates the dispensing as a spray, cream or gel.
As such, it is an ideal barrier pack for liquids, gels, creams and lotions, keeping high product integrity and protection against oxygen.
Due to environmental concerns, there is a move in North America away from aerosols and towards other packaging systems such as one of the Bag on Valve options. It is one option which allows the manufacturer to comply with current and future regulations, while maintaining their integrity of the products formula.
The unique system is developed to not only produce a superior spray dispensing system, but to reduce our ecological footprint through a sustainable packaging process. Compared to traditional aerosol spray technology (and other alternative packaging) aerosols have several benefits, for manufacturers, consumers as well as the environment.
Safety and environmental benefits:
No need for flammable propellants
Hygienic and sterile
Used with eco-friendly air or nitrogen
Less need for preservatives
Production & Environment
Bag on Valve technology is suitable for clean room production and medical products. Companies, incorporate the clean room manufacturing process into their packaging, so they can produce safe and sterile products for customers.
The advantages of Bag on Valve aerosols over the traditional propellant-mix systems fall into two distinct areas: the environmental and regulatory benefits and the usage and cost benefits.
From an application point of view, these include shaving gels, sun care protection, toothpaste, medicines, ear, nose and ophthalmic solutions, pet hair-less products. The trend today is for the use in technical products, products which potentially show greater efficiency and with less safety concerns. In addition to a much lower VOC content.There exists some very interesting food applications such as lemon juice, food flavorings, egg white and olive oils.
Bag on Valve is a technical product capable of delivering quality aerosol solutions with regards to a wide range of applications. In addition it is also ozone friendly and largely recyclable. Being environmentally friendly, when combined with good formulation ideas and marketing skills could accelerate your business development.
