Southcorp Packaging (Atlanta, GA) has introduced a PP paint can called Max-Tite(TM). Injection-molded can body, ring and lid weigh a total of 250 g.
Ring is spin-welded onto body. Patented snap-fit closure system ensures a good seal yet is easily removed by consumers. Compared to metal cans the plastic design reduces spoilage by resisting rust and denting. Can is designed to fit existing filling lines and traditional labeling machines. Metal bales can be applied by standard equipment or PP bales can be applied by hand.
