AMCOR Flexibles has launched Amcor AquaFlexCan, a easy open, non-spill flexible beverage pack for non-carbonated water. The entire pack surface is available for printing, including the top and bottom.
The pack uses laser perforation to make the top of the mouthpiece easy to tear off, allowing the user to drink directly from the pack. No straw or scissors are required. The seal of the mouthpiece allows consumers to easily control the liquid flow and limits spills if the pack falls over.
Amcor AquaFlexCan is produced on a vertical FFS-ROVEMA VPI 260 FlexCan machine and is made from Amcor AquaFlex - a flexible material developed for non-carbonated fresh drinking water. AquaFlex provides a comparable shelf life to rigid containers. It holds chemical and organoleptic certification and its barrier properties ensure water remains fresh and pure.
Specialist survival packs and similar laminates are also available for fruit juice, flavoured water and other still drinks.
