Our cans and tubes are both produced with cold extrusion technology. The process is known as plastic shaping. During shaping, we press a pre-manufactured aluminium disc through the shaping tool using a force between 250-400T. Thus we arrive at the desired cross section and shape, in our case a half-finished product shaped like a cup. Following this phase, we cut the product to size, paint and lacquer it, place a print (lithograph) on it, and then, employing a special technique, we create the shape of the shoulder and the mouth of the can. The advantage of the volume-conversion technology is that it is highly economical and – from the point of view of manufacturing – efficient. The most common materials used in extrusion are carbon steel and compound steel (both with varying carbon-content), copper and aluminium. Our company uses aluminium with a purity of 99.5% to manufacture aerosol cans.
The annual capacity of our aerosol plant is 85 million pieces. This capacity is ensured by 5 cutting-edge production lines.
Based on our over fifty years of experience, we can confidently say that besides the advantageous technical characteristics of aerosol cans, the lithographic elements, i.e. graphic design and quality, are also highly important. Regarding the above, we have always paid special attention to satisfying individual needs. From the point of view of graphics, every expectation is unique, every graphic detail has a huge significance. That’s why we consider it so important that the shape, design and graphic details envisioned by our partners should be fully reflected in the manufactured product. Our mutual goal, set with our partners, is that the finished products on store shelves should appeal to end users.
The daily use of the lithographic technology that we employ requires immense knowledge and experience. The lithography carefully prepared by our graphic designer colleagues and approved by our customers is printed onto the products with dry offset technology. Some of our graphic designers and printing colleagues taking part in this phase of the manufacturing process have over 20 years’ experience in this field. We can thank them mostly for our high level of customer satisfaction.
According to our customers’ wishes, the cans can be made to withstand pressures of 12, 15 or even 18 bar, with a rolled or turned rim. The internal lacquer employed may be based on gold, pigmented epoxy-phenol or myclofex. Base lacquers are available in colourless, white or mother-of-pearl, while external lacquers come in glossy, matte or silky matte varieties.
Our size range runs from aerosol cans with a diameter of 25mm through 35mm, 38mm, 45mm, 50mm and up to 53mm.
