Action Technology: Bag-on-valve pouch material

Action Technology, a Tekni-Plex company, introduces bag-on-valve (BOV) pouch material for aerosol can applications.

The BOV approach offers significant benefits such as the elimination of fluorinated propellants by substituting pressurized gases such as CO2, nitrogen or even ambient air, as well as more flexibility in product formulations.

“We’ve seen a significant growth in companies interested in converting their aerosol applications to BOV pouch material. Instead of mixing the propellant in with the product, BOV technology enables the product to be contained in a multilayer, coextruded pouch which is heat sealed to the dispensing mechanism. The propellant is inserted into the can separately, and never comes in content with the actual product,” explains Steven Storter, senior technical sales manager, Action Technology. “The recent addition of Oracle Packaging to the Tekni-Plex family complements the line of products we now offer to the aerosol and dispensing industries.”
