BROOMFIELD, COLO.—Ball Corporation has won a 2016 Aerosol Packaging award from the British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA) for its ReAl Henkel Fa Men Attraction Force can.
The Henkel Fa Men Attraction Force can is 10 percent lighter than a standard can, which lends itself to a smaller overall carbon footprint. The Attraction Force can is also the first with a flat shoulder design in Ball’s ReAl packaging.
The BAMA award for the Fa Men Attraction Force demonstrates recognition from the industry for the versatility of Ball’s ReAl cans, as well as Ball Corporation’s commitment to a sustainable and responsible manufacturing process.
ReAl is a lighter extruded aluminum can manufactured with revolutionary metal technology, which utilizes recycled aluminum to create a metal alloy that exhibits increased strength and allows lightweighting of the container without affecting package integrity. This breakthrough technology allows Ball to lightweight its extruded aluminum aerosol packaging by 20 percent and more.
Ball’s revolutionary ReAl packaging was introduced in 2012 to meet the need for a more sustainable aerosol can. By 2014, it was well received in the market and demand for the can was rising rapidly. In 2016, Ball continues to evolve the possibilities available with ReAl packaging, which now supports both shaping and specialty printing techniques.
