How does airless container work
An airless packaging uses a difference in environmental pressure to create a vacuum that can evacuate a product from a container. This is a different from a traditional aerosol, which often requires a propellant that is added to a product. The propellant maintains an even pressure in the container by evaporating a small amount, and when evacuated, evaporates rapidly so that only the product being dispensed remains as very fine droplets or mist. Airless solutions don’t require propellants though there are many variations of airless containers the main type used is based on a functional interior plunger. The plunger creates an airtight seal in the interior of the barrel portion that houses the product, so when it is actuated, the product is pushed up from the bottom and evacuated completely. As the product is evacuated the plunger moves up preventing any air to enter the container.
