Chromaflo Technologies recently announced the release of its new quart package. According to Chromaflo, the more robust and sustainable package is a blow-molded HDPE container that will offer several advantages:
- Easy removal of a tri-tab foil induction seal equipped with a screw-top lid that also allows for ease of opening
- An induction seal below the lid that prevents leaks and ensure product integrity
- Natural translucent HDPE, allowing for visual confirmation of product color and container volume
- Lower yield retention (clingage loss) of colorant within the package, compared to sealed metal quarts
- 25% (post-consumer recycled (PCR) material, as required by the state of California
“We are excited to launch this new quart container in the Americas,” said Dean Doza, managing director and vice president. “It will accommodate the stringent demands required for colorant packaging used at point of sale. The detailed process that we’ve taken to move to this new plastic quart from the current liter and sealed metal quart will ensure longer-term stability for our valued customers.”
Chromaflo reports that it has conducted robust testing to ensure the reliability of this new package, including individual container and case tests. The individual container tests include compression, drop, retention/yield, atmospheric pressure, and shaker testing. Case tests include ISTA 3A small parcel test (over pack ship test), ISTA 2A Drop Test-Heavy product, 32", ISTA 3E (vibration, compression, shock), and compression testing.
