LiquiForm Technology Recognized as Dow Diamond Finalist
LiquiForm technology recognized as Dow Diamond finalist, according to a report published on September 17, 2018.
LiquiForm form/fill technology of Amcor Rigid Plastics offers higher efficiency, superior container quality, and greater sustainability to the consumers when compared to conventional bottle blow-molding and liquid-filling processes. This LiquiForm technology was selected as a Diamond finalist in The Dow Chemical Company’s 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation.
LiquiForm technology uses consumable liquid instead of compressed air to simultaneously form and fill a container, which is one of the advantages of this technology. The need for blow-molding equipment and air pressure systems are eliminated and bottle manufacturing and liquid filling is completed in one step using this technology.
Ashish Saxena, Vice President and General Manager of Amcor 360 Packaging Solutions, detailed about the benefits of LiquiForm throughout the supply chain: “Let’s start with the raw material itself, which is resin. There are two advantages LiquiForm brings in resin. First, there’s flexibility to use PET, high-density polyethylene, and polypropylene. Second, in a number of cases, the resin consumption can also be reduced, as lighter-weight containers can be achieved through the improved consistency in wall thickness. As you go from resin to the actual container, another benefit is that there is no need for empty container transportation.”
A bottle for the Nature’s Promise brand of liquid hand soap was the first commercial application of the technology and it was launched in December 2017. Moreover, Saxena said that Amcor is working with various other home and personal care brand owners to bring to market their products in LiquiForm packaging, with the initial bottles manufactured by Amcor.
