BEREA, Ohio – PolyOne ColorMatrix, a global leader in liquid color and additives for plastics,has launched the PlanetPak™ liquid delivery system, the latest in its line of eco-friendly packaging solutions, helping customers reach their environmental goals.
“While traditional drums and pails often end up in landfills, the PlanetPak system is easy to dispose of and recycle,” said Seth Tomasch, general manager, PolyOne ColorMatrix. “This new system also delivers up to 99% product recovery when used in conjunction with our FlexCart volumetric dosing equipment.”
With a design that features a corrugated cardboard outer box, PlanetPak also includes a recyclable 25-liter (5.5 gallon) polyethylene inner liner. Easy to transport, handle and store, this packaging system improves material handling safety while still efficiently delivering the high quality colorant stored within it.
The PlanetPak’s shape means that it can be placed edge-to-edge for more efﬁcient use of space during transport and storage, unlike cylindrical drums and pails. Once the contents have been consumed, boxes and liners are easily ﬂattened for recycling.
