Eco-friendly aerosol-replacement applications using Flair™ technology

Exciting new advances in aerosol replacement are to be introduced at Interpack 2011 with the debut of packaging and dispensing applications based on its revolutionary Flair™ technology by Afa Dispensing Group. Afa is a world leader in technologically advanced liquid dispensing systems. Products from the hygiene and sanitation, personal care, and home and garden sectors, will demonstrate the practical, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly benefits of the Flair™ platform for as a dispensing platform for liquids, fluids, high-viscosity products, soft food and a variety of other products that are susceptible to oxygen degradation. Flair™ is an air-based, all-plastic, highly-effective, non-pressurized alternative to aerosols. It offers the excellent spray pattern and sustained spray of an aerosol, with consistent dispensing in quality and quantity, however without environmentally-harmful VOCs. It also provides a safer, non-pressurised replacement packaging solution as no propellant gases are used. Flair™ allows consistent dispensing in quality and quantity of a small droplet sized spray from start to finish regardless of viscosity, for both periodic and continuous applications. The product can be dispensed as a foam, spray, mousse or plain liquid, with or without measured doses. Products have a longer shelf-life and sterility due to the airtight nature of the system. This helps branded products to be differentiated in the marketplace. Flair™ offers all-round cost price advantages, as the packaging cost of the liquid is significantly lower when compared to the cost of traditional aerosol packaging. Flair™ technology is the latest advance from Afa to herald a shift in traditional packaging approaches that support brand differentiation across a wide range of markets and applications. The Netherlands-headquartered company works closely with international brands seeking new ways to dispense their products and is world-famous for pioneering systems such as the OnePak™ pre-compression all-in-one bottle and dispenser. Since the unveiling of the Flair™ technology concept, Afa has undertaken extensive R&D work with its clients to make the innovation a market reality. “By closing the gap between traditional trigger sprayers and aerosols, Flair™ provides the ideal solution to brand owners seeking a more environmentally-friendly approach while achieving the small droplet size and consistent spray of an aerosol,” comments Dennis Stevens, Chief Commercial Officer AFA Dispensing Group. “Interpack 2011 provides a valuable opportunity to demonstrate to the packaging market how we have moved Flair™ technology from an exciting concept to a pioneering reality.
