Aluminum Aerosol Sprays

It’s no secret that with the threat of climate change, the need to recycle has become greater. Countries have made impressive infrastructure changes to prevent citizens from retiring recycleable materials in a landfill. And, companies, such as pharmaceutical manufacturers are taking on the responsibility of reducing their ecological footprint through innovative and creative changes in company culture and manufacturing process.

Bag on Valve (BoV), an aerosol packaging used by contract manufacturing companies, like Aurena Laboratories, is another example of innovative company that use aluminum for their product cans. By using aluminum they are able to make lightweight, flexible products and no other material obstructs light, air (oxygen), damp and germs like aluminum does.

Did you know that aluminum is considered to be almost unlimited as a metal resource? Over 8% of the earth’s surface consists of aluminum. And, unlike metals used in traditional aerosols, aluminum can be used over and over again.

The need for change is critical with companies, as citizens and countries are taking big steps to ensure a green future. That is why Bag on Valve and aluminium cans should be your next choice for aerosol spray packaging.

Why BoV Packaging is Superior to Traditional Aerosols

BoV vs Traditional Aerosols

Why BoV Packaging is Superior to Traditional Aerosols

To many consumers that enter a supermarket on a daily bases, the quality of an aerosol can may just be another concern that goes overlooked. However, to the industry buyers and manufacturers, an aerosol can can be the difference between an average product and a premium product.

The superior Bag on Valve (BoV) system is developed to not only produce a superior spray dispensing system, but to reduce our ecological footprint through a sustainable packaging process. Compared to traditional aerosol spray technology, BoV aerosols have several benefits for manufacturers, consumers and the environment.

The following are more reasons you should trust BoV as your first choice for aerosols and airless packaging.

Product Emptying – up to 100% product emptying!

Unlike traditional aerosols, BoV keeps product separate from propellants at all times thanks to an FDA-approved laminated bag installed inside the aluminum can. Because the product is in a flexible pouch, the propellant (compressed air or nitrogen) is able to squeeze the bag until almost 100% of the product is dispensed. Unlike traditional aerosols, which may run out of propellant before all of the product is dispensed.


As opposed to flammable propellants used in traditional aerosol systems, BoV uses compressed air or nitrogen to push the product out of the Bag on Valve system. This is possible because unlike traditional aerosols, BoV propellants will not mix with the product.

Product Types

In the medical sector Bag on Valve products are able to dispense as either; liquid, gel, ointment or cream. In some cases, companies can turn their pharmaceutical cream into a spray by using the BoV system. The versatility of BoV even allows products to have several other benefits;

  • Sprayed evenly at all angles

  • No pumping motion required

  • Reduced spray noise

  • Longer shelf life for oxygen-sensitive products

  • Suitable for both liquid and viscous products

  • Can be used with standard actuators and aerosol cans

Production & Environment

Bag on Valve technology is suitable for clean room production and medical products. Companies, such as Aurena Laboratories, incorporate the clean room manufacturing process into their BoV packaging, so they can produce safe and sterile products for customers.
