Rapak North America—a business unit of DS Smith, Plastics Division—launched its new DuraBev line of beverage bags for bag-in-box packaging formats. This next-generation bag has been redesigned to provide a more robust packaging solution for BIB applications such as post-mix syrup and juices.

The enhanced structure of DuraBev provides a more durable, puncture-resistant product which can even reliably survive a 40-inch drop test. The DuraBev bag uses Rapak’s embossed film technology providing evacuation performance in excess of 99 percent, compared to standard post-mix bags. DuraBev is available in a variety of sizes and bag fitments.

Rapak will showcase DuraBev at the upcoming International Beverage Dispensing Equipment Association (IBDEA) conference, to be held March 9–13 in Orlando, Florida.

Rapak is part of Plastics’ Flexible Packaging segment with operations in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australasia. DS Smith, Plastics Division is part of DS Smith Plc.—a € 5/ £4 billion plastics and packaging multinational with operations in 36 countries, employing 26,000 people.
