Plastic prevails in paint packaging in Ukraine
Ukrainian paint producer Meffert Ganza Farben is creating product differentiation in the DIY sector with the re-launch of its paint in the Paintainer plastic pail from RPC Superfos, replacing the previous metal pack format.
The trend for paint and lacquer in Ukraine is moving towards packaging with In-mold Labeling (IML), according to RPC.
“We used to apply only metal packaging for our products, but now we also use the Paintainer plastic packaging solution from RPC Superfos, namely pails in two sizes: 2.7L and 5.3L. It is a modern, high-quality replacement that perfectly matches our packaging needs,” said Sergey Ezholov, Deputy of the General Director of Meffert Ganza Farben.
As said, the injection molded polypropylene (PP) Paintainer offers superior decoration options using IML technology, in particular for its graphic finish that renders the smallest decorative detail.
“Our aim was to find a modern packaging for our paint, making it easily distinguishable on shelf,” noted Mr Ezholov. “In our working processes we find that the plastic containers work noticeably well in all stages, including the labeling, filling and packing stages. Contrary to metal, plastic packaging is not subject to deformation and there is no risk of corrosion.”
