CLEVELAND, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- NUTEK, LLC's Bolt Off - a Smart Green(TM) penetrating lubricant - has been selected as one of the top 60 packaging designs of 2009 by BRANDPACKAGING. Featuring an aluminum can manufactured by Exal, the Bolt Off product showcases a no slip grip; the first ever implemented in the lubricant category. "We were astonished that no one ever thought of selecting a package that met the needs of the lubricant market by providing a superior nozzle and no slip grip design," confirmed Cathy Horton, CEO and Kim Novotney, EVP of Marketing.

The packaging design exceeds environmental standards by selecting the least amount of plastic; such a selection offered through a unique European nozzle is designed to release NUTEK's green lubricant for both light and heavy duty applications. The Bolt Off brand was selected to readily distinguish the use for the product, which is a powerful remover of rusty nuts and bolts. It has been coined the "Silver Bullet" by end users.

Selected by the magazine's editors and from suggestions submitted by readers, package design firms and consumer packaged goods companies, the book's 60 package designs represent the year's most innovative graphic and structural packaging from around the globe.
