US packaging firm Sonoco has expanded its products suite with the launch of three solutions at the Spring Adhesives and Sealant Council (ASC) Expo, in New Orleans, North America.
The new products are the RiteSize Caulk Cartridge, the RainGuard weather-resistant fibre cartridge and the SealMax 2-ply label.
The new RiteSize Caulk Cartridge incorporates enhanced capabilities to provide superior graphics and has been designed to provide a user-friendly caulking system.
The solution features a pre-cut nozzle, an easy dispenser to use in tight spaces and a less forceful trigger.
Sonoco Global Plastics division vice-president and global manager Jeff DiPasquale said: "With the increasing growth of do-it-yourselfers in today’s marketplace, the Right Size Caulk Cartridge is a great option for self-motivated homeowners.
"It’s simple, convenient and easy to use, making it ideal for small projects, whether you are a first-timer or an experienced professional. We see this as a very promising market with upside growth potential."
The RainGuard caulk and sealant packaging solution is resistant to damage from outdoor conditions.
The SealMax 2-ply label features up to three times the amount of printable surface area, and facilitates enhanced communication by enabling better sharing of information.
Earlier this month, the company entered a strategic partnership with French manufacturer of bioplastic Vegeplast to launch a new suite of recyclable containers.
