Ball wins British Aerosol Manufacturing Association Innovation Award for tactile can

Aluminum Aerosol

Ball Corporation recently won a 2017 British Aerosol Manufacturing Association (BAMA) Aerosol Packaging Award for its tactile can, which the company designed and produced.

Ball’s innovative design and distinctive tactile print finish were brought to life by a snake featured prominently on an aluminum aerosol can. Tactile is an ink that provides texture on the can for a unique consumer interaction with the package. Ball is able to apply the ink around 360 degrees of the can. Enough of the tactile ink is “laid” on the can so it provides grip for the consumer. Tactile ink is a subtle art and Ball leverages significant technical experience in printing this ink on aerosol cans, which was gleaned from the learnings of its beverage business.

Of the competition this year, the judges said, “The standard of the entries was extremely high, which not only made the experience hugely enjoyable, but also reminded us why the UK aerosol industry is so successful. Our congratulations go to all the entrants, and especially to the winners!”

BAMA is a trade association that represents the UK aerosol industry. BAMA’s membership covers every aspect of the aerosol sector ranging from component and ingredient suppliers to fillers, can makers and marketers. The winners of its annual awards were announced at the 2017 Forum and Awards Dinner, held at the prestigious Oulton Hall, Leeds.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
