PET packaging specialist APPE has launched a plastic aerosol that provides a lower cost alternative to tinplate or aluminum cans.
The new pack called ‘SprayPET’ is ideal for a variety of personal care products, such as creams, shaving gels, sun tan lotions, and hair care products.
The 335ml PET aerosol offers a lightweight construction ensuring a lower total cost of ownership compared to metal equivalents as well as delivering a lower carbon footprint of up to 65 per cent (calculated using the Bilan Carbon method). The container is also recyclable, adding to its sustainability benefits.
APPE says that SprayPET can be specified with any standard actuator and the company is pleased to be working with Plasticum to provide these.
“We have seen growing interest for PET applications in the aerosol industry,” confirms Gerrit Verhagen, Business Line Manager Aerosols for Plasticum.
