The new range of Politainers from RPC
RPC Promens new ‘Politainer’ packaging solution is said to deliver materials savings of up to 75 percent compared to rigid containers.
Available in sizes from one to 30 litres, Politainer comprises a PE container held within a sturdy cardboard outer.
The unique solution, for which RPC Promens is the only supplier in Europe, is said to offer manufacturers a number of benefits including reduced logistics and hygiene benefits.
The empty packs are shipped flat-packed, with 1440 five litre packs able to be placed on a single pallet, therefore maximising storage and greatly reducing the impact of transportation in terms of both cost and the environment.
In addition, RPC Promens offers a unique closed filling system, whereby the Politainer can be directly linked to a filling machine via special connectors, providing a mess-free operation that it says also minimises the risk of contamination.
In addition, the Politainer collapses as the product is used, which helps to ensure complete evacuation of the container with minimal residue. The collapsed PE container, which is fully recyclable, also aids disposal.
Politainer is suitable for many different applications including chemicals, inks, pharmaceuticals and food, and the container is also available in a coex EVOH / PA version.
