Bag-in-Box for Paint, Coatings and Varnishes
Bag-in-Box is an excellent packaging alternative for water based paint, coatings and wood-preservers.
Why is Bag-in-Box a better option compared to plastic jerrycans and tin cans?
- 100% recyclable outer box
- Minimum 55% less plastic than HDPE bottles
- Minimum 50% lighter than tin cans
- -90% of CO2 footprint for 2.5L BIB vs. same size tin

More practical for the consumer:
- Fully closed pack allows:
- Greater cleanliness - no mess, dripping or glugging
- Paint is protected from air and light so it does not get dry or form crust
- Longer shelf life– up to 18 months after opening
- Kneading the bags instead of stirring
Optimized for the brand:
- Strong branding impact due to large printable front surface
- Lower transport and storage cost: 25% less pallets, trucks and deliveries
- Easy bulk shipping and dispensing options
- Low investment cost
