Rapak created a tough and puncture resistant bag for Bag-in-Box that provides convenient dispensing of premium high-alcohol spirits and cocktail mixes, for parties, sporting events and outdoor activities such as picnics or camping trips. The highly engineered bag is comprised of a specially formulated high barrier Nylon-EVOH LLDPE Co-extruded film, providing oxygen barrier and durability. The bag film passes stringent migration testing and complies with FDA regulations for high alcohol content, CFR 21 176.170. Additionally, the food contact layer of the two-ply bag was carefully selected to not impart off-flavors. One of the key challenges of packaging spirits is that the bag and tap can easily take on the flavors of the materials they are in contact with so a properly formulated film coupled with organoleptic testing is key.
