PLYMOUTH, Mass., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CDF Corporation, a leading manufacturer of drum, pail, intermediate bulk container and bag in box liners and flexible packaging, has successfully passed the design qualification testing of a combination package; fiberboard box with a plastic bag. CDF's UN certified bag-in-box will provide the highest levels of protection for transporting hazardous products requiring class II and III packaging.

The 20 liter bag-in-box packaging endured four rigorous performance tests executed by Ten-E Packaging Services; the tests include drop, stacking, vibration and cobb water absorption.

"Our development team did a tremendous job creating a product that meets the rigorous UN standards while offering unique value to our customers.  We are excited to continue our growth into the UN package market segment," said Jay Waltz, CDF Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

For the box drop tests, each package was dropped from 47.2" at a different angle. Any breakage or leaking during the tests void the package. CDF's bag-in-box package passed the drop tests at 1.2m.

The stacking test is performed to ensure the packages are strong enough that they will not collapse. For the stacking tests, two filled packages of the same type are placed on the test sample. The stacked packages must maintain their position for one hour. CDF's bag-in-box package passed the stacking test at 303.9Kg - 24 hours.

The vibration tests are done to simulate the package traveling by motorized vehicle. CDF's bag-in-box package passed the vibration test at 4.1Hz - 1 hour.

The cobb water absorption test is performed on the fiberboard outer package to test the quantity of water that can be absorbed by the surface of paper or board in a given time. CDF's box passed the cobb water absorption test at 30 minutes.
