Discovering the ideal packaging solution is critical, particularly regarding liquids. The choice of package type significantly impacts the efficiency of various applications. ZACROS’ CUBITAINER® is designed to excel in distinct applications and boost your packaging experience.


1. Personal & Home Care Supplies – The packaging requirements for Personal & Home Care products are highly distinctive, influenced by the structure of chemical specifics of each product. We have seen more refill packaging options for personal and home care products.

2. Reagent & Industrial Chemicals – Choosing reagent & industrial chemicals packaging can be challenging because many chemicals are hazardous. Therefore, chemical compatibility with packaging becomes critical for selecting suitable packaging. Other BIB (bag-in-box) solutions cannot handle these hazardous materials.

3. Food & Beverage – ZACROS provides FDA-compliant and BPA-free sustainable packaging with taste & flavor protection.

4. Pharmaceutical & Medical – ZACROS supports the medical community by working with customers to advance medical technology through innovative packaging solutions.


5. Emergency/Natural Disasters – CUBITAINER® has been used in various natural disaster environments. For example, during Western United States forest fires, CUBITAINER® was air-dropped to supply firefighters with water. The one-gallon CUBITAINER® provides drinking water, and the five-gallon is versatile for other uses. Its lightweight and flexibility help it withstand drops without much damage, a significant improvement over shattering metal cans previously used.




CUBITAINER® vs. Rigid Packaging

One of the critical advantages of CUBITAINER® is its potential to reduce plastic usage significantly. By switching from rigid open pail containers to CUBITAINER®, plastic use can be reduced by an impressive 80%. Recycled CUBITAINER® reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 23% compared to CUBITAINER® from virgin resin.
Additionally, the stackable design of the CUBITAINER® optimizes the product-to-packaging ratio, minimizing dead space. It takes up only one truck space compared to the seven trucks needed for traditional blow-molded containers. This significant reduction in transportation needs further underscores the sustainability and cost-effectiveness of CUBITAINER®. Transportation contributes a significant amount of total greenhouse gas emissions in the US!
