Robyn McMillan, global beverage segment manager at PPG Packaging Coatings, explains why industry collaboration and coatings innovation are key to metal packaging trends
PPG announced PPG INNOVEL® PRO, an enhanced internal spray coating that uses no bisphenol-A (BPA) or bisphenol starting substances and provides more robust application properties for the infinitely recyclable aluminum beverage can.
Amy Ericson, senior vice president packaging coatings, highlights PPG Innovel® PRO's recent optimization for canline operational efficiency; C2C Material Health Certificate at the Platinum level; and reliability resulting from a decade as industry leaders in food contact coatings that don't rely on bisphenol starting substances.
The public is getting serious about the negative environmental impacts of plastic waste. In the latest Coatings World, Dr. Robyn McMillan, Global Segment Manager, PPG Packaging Coatings, discusses the importance of sustainable alternatives in packaging.
