BILTEN, Switzerland, April 6 /CNW/ - A sensation at the award of the
prestigious 2011 Edison Best New Product Awards(TM) in New York:
Airolux wins the silver award with its revolutionary invention. The
prize was awarded for the innovative Air0Pack(R) dispenser technology
"plastic instead of metal, air instead of propellant gas".
A great honor for a great invention: The Edison Awards Gala in New York
on April 5, 2011 is an event at which prizes are given to innovative
technologies and novel products. Sensational winner of the silver award
is Airolux with its revolutionary world first, the Air0Pack(R)
dispenser technology: The developers have succeeded in substituting
propellant gas by air in aerosols and in making the entire dispenser in
plastic instead of metal. The innovative key component is the patented
PCD Pressure Control Device.
"We are delighted with and very proud of the silver award. With the
adjudication by some 2,000 experts from industry and science, we are
encouraged to introduce our revolutionary technology for greatly
reduced production and filling costs to the world market," says Quint
Kelders, CEO of I.P.S. Innovative Packaging Solutions AG, in
acknowledgement of the award. A spectacular start to a new era in
Airolux AG in Bilten (Switzerland) is a joint venture established by IPS
with the Resilux Group in June 2010.
The Edison Award-winning, patented Airolux Air0Pack(R) dispenser in
brief: A plastic container is fitted with a compressed air chamber.
This employs a novel invention, the PCD Pressure Control Device, to
press a piston upwards, releasing the liquid content, the gel or foam.
This eliminates the disadvantages of conventional aerosol systems: The
Airolux dispenser is made entirely of plastic which brings considerable
advantages for the packaging design and, above all, lower production
costs and faster filling throughput times. Moreover normal air is used
in place of aerosol propellant, the risk of explosion is eliminated and
metal containers are no longer required.
By now, the technology has passed all tests and is ready for the market.
A number of globally active companies have expressed considerable
interest in this patented system; the first large-scale production for
customers is scheduled for this summer.
I.P.S. Innovative Packaging Solutions AG is a Swiss holding company. The
shares are listed on the Domestic Standard of SIX Swiss Exchange.
