Milacron Holdings Corp. has announced that its Uniloy business and Consolidated Container Co. have partnered to develop a new, lower-weight family of milk jugs, in gallons, half-gallon and other sizes: Dura-Lite.
Other attributes of the Dura-Lite include improved strength, consumer appeal and compatibility with the supply chain.
The container has radiuses, symmetrical ribs and angles that work together to reduce weight without sacrificing bottle performance or aesthetics.
Dura-Lite containers will hit retail shelves in early 2016. Because of an exclusivity agreement between Milacron and Consolidated Container, Dura-Lite containers are available only through Consolidated.
Milacron is based in Blue Ash, Ohio.
