RICHMOND, Va., July 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Global liquid packaging solutions provider Liqui-Box today announced the launch of their new SealGard bag-in-box dairy film. SealGard utilizes state-of-the-art resin technology focusing on a step change in durability and performance across key performance criteria. The SealGard film's durability performance is optimized for refrigerated product applications, a valuable benefit to dairy suppliers globally.
The refrigerated drop test performance has demonstrated a staggering 200% improvement compared to current industry standard dairy films and a 380% improvement to impact resistance. These improvements have been accomplished using higher performance resins that also translated to lighter bags, therefore saving on inbound freight costs by as much as 25%.
