Quadpack’s new airless product family allows custom shapes with minimum lead time and reduced investment, using 15% less plastic
Cosmetics companies seeking to express their brand identities through their packaging, while protecting their formulas with an airless system, now have the perfect solution in CANVAS Airless®. The new range from Quadpack offers the ability to explore never-before-seen shapes in airless products, enabling customisation with reduced investment and minimal lead time. Made using patented bag-in-bottle technology, CANVAS Airless® is a proprietary airless container system with collapsible pouch, which opens up a world of creative possibilities.
Bag-in-bottle is an evolution of the bi-injection blow moulding technology acquired by Quadpack in 2019. Developed in conjunction with R&D partner Inotech, the two-phase process lowers investment and vastly reduces development time compared with bespoke piston airless packs. Preforms are bi-injection moulded at Quadpack’s airless manufacturing centre in Germany, to be blown in a single pass in the desired shape.
The long-term aim is to stock the preforms in all three of Quadpack’s key territories – EMEA, the Americas and Asia Pacific. Brands can then rely on local supply for late differentiation and a lower carbon footprint. As such, CANVAS Airless® is part of Quadpack’s QLine portfolio of smart, modular solutions, delivered in the region, for the region.
“CANVAS Airless® provides a blank canvas for creative design,” said Quadpack Head of Market Development Pierre-Antoine Henry. “With one mould for infinite shapes, it enables greater freedom of expression. Brands can choose oval, square, convex, concave and other forms – and all without additional outlay or time delay. It sets the new standard in airless packaging, offering accessible added value, along with all the benefits of airless technology.”
Airless packaging protects formulas from external contamination, while increasing shelf life. The pumps can be used at any 360° angle, while actuating the bulk with minimal waste. CANVAS Airless® performs highly on this front, with a restitution rate of 97 per cent.
As a bi-injected, two-layer, pouch-based pack, CANVAS Airless® uses 15 per cent less plastic than piston airless equivalents and it can be made with a choice of materials. The QLine range comes with an LLDPE pouch and PET outer bottle as standard, both recyclable materials. Current outer options include rPET and PETG, while inner options include surlyn. Further sustainable materials will be available in future, while a metal-free pump and refill formats are both on the product development roadmap.
CANVAS Airless® will be commercially available from January 2022.

Beauty steps for wellbeing
Social distancing, self-quarantine and remote working are all part of everyday life for many of us and consumers are prioritising their emotional and physical health. To elevate the wellbeing experience, Quadpack invites brands to find out how accessories can be the perfect complement to their beauty products.
A clean and safe solution for formula protection
All beauty experts know that a successful product is the combination of a great formula and the right packaging. Airless packaging meets the challenge by combining all these possibilities in one pack, thanks to a dispensing system where the formula is never in contact with the air before application.
The best discoveries come in small packages
As a global provider for fragrance, skincare and make-up packaging, Quadpack has created three discovery sets that offer all the pampering elements that will help stimulate consumers’ good feelings. Combining trends like personalisation, small dosage, sustainability and cleanliness, these packs are an invitation to take a sensory journey.

On a roll with Quadpack's fragrance vials
We all know the feeling. We are stuck in traffic or leaving the gym, and need a quick hit of our favourite fragrance or essential oil.

Quadpack’s range of glass roll-on fragrance vials look great and provide a sensory experience.

The Feel Good Factor – Packaging concepts for new textures
It seems like the dark ages when we only talked about ‘creams and colognes’. These days, technology, innovation and a host of cultural and social factors have pushed the textures of beauty and cosmetic products beyond our imagination. Capsules, balms, jellies, scrubs – beauty these days is not just high-tech, it’s also fun and consistently surprising.
