Conitex Sonoco launches new barrier bag

Published by , Assistant Editor
Dry Bulk,

American manufacturer and distributor of intermediate bulk containers Conitex Sonoco® USA, Inc. has launched a new multi-layer barrier bag product line from their Flexible Products Division (FPD), BulkSak®. 


Available in 20 – 50 kg bag sizes, the high-quality, multi-layer barrier film bag provides up to 10 colour customisable packaging and comes in a standard 25kg (55lb) size. The barrier bag provides puncture-resistant packaging against corrosive damage caused by humidity, moisture, oxygen, salt spray, aromas, grease and other airborne contaminants. In addition, an optional one-way degassing valve expends air from inside the bag to preserve freshness and maintain quality for products sensitive to oxygen.

David Monteith, VP of FPD at Conitex Sonoco explained: “We see an opportunity to offer a competitive advantage to our customers and prospects with this new multi-layer barrier bag.”

“When there is no compromise for quality, these barrier bags provide a means to maintain a brand’s promise to their customer for a quality, delivered product,” he added.

This superior alternative to the multi-wall paper bag offers a variety of customisable laminated film layers. Composite materials available for laminated coextrusion include high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), aluminum (AL), nylon (PA), ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) and others available upon request.
