Cheertainer® Bag-in-Box packaging has been declared compatible for use with petroleum products, following rigorous Department of Transportation testing. Positive test results enhance the value, flexibility and cost savings that come with using Cheertainer bag-in-box packaging for petroleum-based applications.
The 28-day chemical compatibility examination was conducted by Ten-E Packaging Services, a highly regarded product testing facility, as mandated under the Department of Transportation’s Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 173 Appendix B. CFR testing subjects the product to rigorous chemical compatibility and rate of permeation trials in extreme chamber conditions measuring 122° F (50° C) for 28 days.
As part of the testing, Cheertainer bags were filled with both regular and synthetic motor oil and were inspected weekly for evidence of defects, including cracking, crazing, swelling and leakage. According to the report, there was “no visible evidence of deformation to any container” during the testing.
“We are pleased that the Cheertainer performed successfully as expected, thereby adding to its benefits over rigid packaging. The cost savings and sustainability advantages of the Cheertainer make it a valuable alternative to rigid packaging, especially for petroleum companies,” stated Iris Kennedy, CDF’s Product Manager for Cheertainer.
The Cheertainer provides an eco-smart choice for the petroleum customer without sacrificing the quality and reliability demanded throughout the marketplace – reduced plastic consumption minimizes packaging requirements, while maximizing transportation and storage efficiency. The packaging’s form-fit, square design allows for seamless filling and full dispensing of the product.
