BROOMFIELD, Colo., June 16, 2016 - Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL) and new partner Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company are making a breakthrough in aerosol can making with one of first commercial applications of the new G3-HD two-piece tinplate can, which is hitting shelves in the U.S.
"Faultless Starch is excited to partner with Ball on their new innovative two-piece aerosol can technology. Faultless has a history of supporting new packaging technologies for the market," said William Wood, president of the Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company. "We congratulate Ball on creating a more sustainable, graphics-forward packaging solution with G3-HD."
Compared to cans currently available on the market, the infinitely recyclable G3-HD can stands out thanks to its superior high definition, eight-color in-line graphics capability. Additionally, the high speed, coil-to-can process utilized by G3-HD accommodates sidewall thinning, so a variety of customers and products may benefit from lightweighting their can.
"The creation of the G3-HD can is Ball's single largest investment in aerosol innovation to date," said Jim Peterson, chief operating officer, Ball food and aerosol packaging. "With the recent introduction of the G3-HD can, as well as the world's most diverse aerosol container portfolio, Ball continues to meet the needs of its growing customers."
