The recent development in motor oil pouch packaging is the use of flexible, stand up pouches, instead of the traditional rigid bottles. Motor oil pouch packs are easier to use and are portable due to its light weight. Many special design features can be incorporated in stand up pouches such as handles and spouts. In 2012, Universal Lubricants, a US based leading manufacturer of motor oils and lubricants, were the first to implement pouch packaging for their Eco Ultra range of products. The Eco Ultra FlexPak is more light weight, durable and sustainable as compared to conventional rigid plastic bottles. The pouch pack is made up of three barrier layers of nylon, polyester and LLDPE (Linear Low Density Polyethylene). It is provided with a pouring spout to prevent bubbles and glugs while pouring the oil or lubricant.
