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.

Coveris said that the product targets the European food-on-the-move sector and is an evolution of Coveris’ peelable and separable RecyclaPEel sandwich skillet made from cartonboard and PE liner components.
According to Coveris, the design of RecyclaPEel MAP enables the lined corners to form a tight gas seal. When packed using a gas-flush process, the tight seal retains control of pack atmosphere over the lifecycle of the product, extending shelf life “significantly beyond the four days achieved with Coveris’ lined board skillets typically used in the UK market”.
Will Mercer, Coveris’ graphics, label and board R&D director, said: “FachPack is the perfect opportunity to launch our new RecyclaPEel MAP sandwich skillet. Targeting the European food-on-the-move market, RecyclaPEel MAP is Coveris’ extended life sandwich skillet meeting longer shelf life demands in the European food-on-the-move market. Aligned with Coveris’ vision for No Waste, including products and packaging, our innovative RecyclaPEel MAP is a fully recyclable, forward thinking pack for the future of food-on-the-move in Europe.”
