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?

More sustainable:

  • 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
  • BPA-free
  • 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
