Airless Refillable System (ARS) by APC Packaging


The patent-pending refillable system utilizes PP, but can also be created with up to 75% PCR by package weight. The internal cartridge can be recycled and a new cartridge can be used with the same actuator and outer bottle. Both of these features reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact of the ARS. Incorporating a disposable and replaceable inner cartridge is APC Packaging’s newest innovation towards sustainable packaging.

“Innovation is defined by APC Packaging as a solution that must meet several criteria for us to consider it an innovation,” according to Robert Bulla, Director of Engineering & Innovation. “An innovation must be replicable, economical and satisfy a particular need in the market. Most airless refillable packages on the market are simply a screw-off pump branded as refillable. The material selection has not changed, and the materials utilized are not easily recyclable. Another issue that we are seeing is that the packaging is not intuitive for user-friendly use and reuse,” states Bulla. The Airless Refillable System designed by APC Packaging’s engineering department utilizes a simple push of a button to release the inner assembly which allows the customer to easily replace only the inner bottle and then easily slide and snap back into position. The Airless Refillable System will be available in 30ml and 50ml versions.

In addition, APC Packaging will be releasing a patent-pending refillable jar system in 15ml, 30ml, and 50ml sizes. All innovations developed at APC Packaging go through a process from material selection, design, ease of use and cost-effectiveness. APC Packaging can work with you to ensure that your Brand DNA and sustainability requirements are met.
