OPTIMAL PRODUCT PRESERVATION
Shatterproof and a barrier to light and air, our aluminium bottles guarantee optimal product preservation, shelf life and logistics. A range of openings and stoppers provides full consumer satisfaction.
Our technological mastery of aluminium – from smelting to packaging aerosol containers and bottles – means we create and supply a full range of containers.
The latest production technologies – such as 'C2C' – can either make ultra-light aluminium aerosols and bottles at very high speed, or provide full body shaping (thus providing creative and customised packaging).
Aluminium is fully recyclable and represents a high-value renewable material. Light, it reduces transport costs and fuel consumption in the entire supply chain. Our aluminium bottle production process strives to reduce material consumption by constant down gauging and improved efficiencies.
Boxal uses the latest integrated design tools and efficient solutions to meet the changing requirements of the cosmetics and pharmaceutical markets.
Our expertise in aerosol-shaping techniques and full mastery of the latest production technologies enables us to fully shape aerosols. Our 'freestyle by Boxal' shapes strengthen product personality and give each item a distinctive identity.
The ergonomics created by the shaped models make the containers easier to hold and handle. All our containers can be shaped to enable new, exclusive accessories to be attached.
Boxal's shaped aerosols comply with the same technical and safety characteristics as classic containers.
Made of tinplate, and produced by drawing and wall ironing, Boxal two-piece tin-plate aerosol cans have a monobloc body without any weld or seam, and a perfectly smooth inner wall.
The inside of the container body can be varnished or left blank depending on the product being packaged. Each container can withstand a pressure rating up to 18bars.
AEROSOL CAN INSIDE PROTECTION
Various possibilities are available depending on the characteristics of the contents. Compatibility tests are carried out systematically for all new products.
Seven colours are available, with 360° offset printing over a base coat with full over-varnish protection. High-resolution graphics and special effects are available.
Several cone specifications are available, including inside blank, varnished or covered with a PET film, and outside blank, white or coloured. The cone is crimped on the body and the standard opening is 1in (25.4mm).
The Newcan technological revolution provides aesthetically pleasing designs and competitive solutions for international brands. Integrated high-capacity lines working at up to 400 containers per minute make two-piece steel containers that meet the market's most stringent standards.
Boxal continues to improved performance by using new materials and optimising the Newcan concept to produce a monobloc steel aerosol.
ISO 9001 AND 9002 CERTIFIED MANUFACTURING SITES
Boxal's three European sites, with their capacity of almost 900 million units and more than 20 integrated production lines, provide power and flexibility.
All our sites are ISO 9001 and 9002 certified and comply with the strictest environmental-protection standards. Boxal's aluminium aerosols and bottles are fully recyclable.
