Aerosol tins

Aerosol cans have become an integral part of everyday life. From hairspray and cleaning products to shaving foam. In order to catch the customer's eye at the POS, a visually appealing and high-quality coating of the cans is of central importance.

The tinplate sheets are processed and printed in various stages. From the pre-press stage, the protective coating on the inside as corrosion protection, colourless or white coatings on the outside through to elaborate printing, which is completed with various options for the final coating. Whether completely matt or glossy, matt/gloss effects are also possible. This can also be achieved using the efficient UV drying systems from IST METZ.

The uniqueness of the NEOCAN lies in its manufacturing process: it uses neither natural gas nor any other fossil fuel, which takes sustainability and resource conservation in production to a whole new level.

This has been achieved through external lamination including offset printing. This process can be achieved using a white PET film, which is then printed with UV ink on the printing line (MetalStar 3) and then coated inline with the UV varnish and cured. This process was applied using UV technology from IST METZ.
