A new two-piece, lightweight steel aerosol can debuts from Ball Corporation.

BROOMFIELD, COL.—Ball Corporation, the premier global supplier of metal aerosol containers is now manufacturing G3-HD,  a two-piece, lightweight steel aerosol container. This latest addition to Ball’s industry leading aerosol can portfolio is manufactured in the company’s Chestnut Hill, Tennessee facility.  Ball currently has strong customer interest in this new, innovative packaging solution and household goods consumers can expect to see the product hitting retail shelves in 2016.

Ball calls the G3-HD the next generation of steel aerosol packaging. The integrated dome design is the product of a high speed, coil-to-can manufacturing process and features high definition graphics to meet customers’ growing expectations for their brands. Moving beyond traditional steel aerosol manufacturing, G3-HD is designed to control sidewall thickness to accommodate various specifications.

The infinitely recyclable G3-HD is available in multiple sizes and utilizes Ball’s advanced technology to provide a brighter and whiter canvas to accommodate up to eight-color, high resolution customer graphics.


By providing the world’s most diverse aerosol container portfolio, Ball continues to meet the needs of its growing customer portfolio.
