Food cans

PROTECTION INSIDE AND OUT

At PPG Packaging Coatings, we make it our business to protect both the can and what’s inside it – and the brand name that’s printed on the outside, too.

A LONG-STANDING EXPERTISE IN FOOD METAL CANS

From the latest in advantaged coatings to long-standing proven technologies, we offer one of the world’s most extensive selection of high-performance and versatile coatings for every format of aluminum and steel cans, as well as for classical and full aperture easy-open-ends*, either for food or pet-food. We also provide an extensive technical assistance.
 
All are specially designed to protect can contents and to meet regulatory needs. Our coatings are produced following strictly controlled operational processes, including internationally-recognized Hazardous Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles of food safety.

Our range includes:
  • Internal coatings designed to withstand a wide spectrum of food packs, offering high resistance to stain, sulfur and acid; some being lubricated for easy release of food products
  • Easy-to-apply liquid and powder side stripe coatings to protect the seam of 3 piece cans
  • High scratch resistant and flexible external coatings
* 3 piece cans, 2 piece shallow drawn cans, 2 piece DRD cans, 2 piece DWI cans

BETTER PROTECTION, ONE INNOVATION AT A TIME

Our products and services are backed by experienced research and development platforms across the globe that have helped PPG Packaging Coatings secure the sustainability of the can, and deliver value at every stage of the supply chain.
 
Now, our new range of advantaged internal and external coatings for cans, classical and full-aperture-easy-open-ends, offers even more appeal for consumers, value for brand owners, and operational advantages for manufacturers. These sustainable solutions are designed to meet the latest regulatory needs of food cans and ends.
