SpaceKraft® totes for Nonhazardous Liquids

SpaceKraft® totes are an ideal replacement for drums, returnable bottle-in-cage and eight-sided corrugated IBCs.

Carrying up to 330 gallons of liquid, one SpaceKraft Liquids IBC can do the job of up to six drums, reducing the time and labor required for filling, emptying and handling multiple containers. As a replacement for returnable totes, SpaceKraft eliminates the high cost of maintenance and return transportation.

The traditional SpaceKraft IBC is shipped knocked down flat, like a traditional bag-in-box and assembled at the filling location. SpaceKraft containers arrive flat saving up to 80 percent of trailer and warehouse space required for some rigid IBCs or drums making them ideal for applications where space is a premium. SpaceKraft containers can be set up by one person in just one minute.

The SpaceKraft and ReadyFill containers are engineered to bring sustainability into your bulk packaging program. The sleeve is composed of renewable fiber, 100% of which is sourced through the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) certified procurement system.

  • Stacks up to four high depending on application .
  • Superior strength and durability through eight or nine-wall seamless construction.
  • The outer sleeve is made of a renewable source and is recyclable.
  •  No wood or metal components.
  • Seven times the insulation factor of drums for superior protection during extreme heat or cold.
  • A variety of liners are available to match product and application needs: high performance, high barrier and extreme toughness.

- Working with the customer, our technical staff can develop custom package specifications to meet product and supply chain needs rather forcing those needs into a single drum or returnable tote design.

- A variety of liners are available to match your product and application needs: high performance, high barrier and extreme toughness. All liners are produced in AIB certified facilities and approved for food contact.
