Contan to showcase offering at Propak

Contan plastic bucket

Explore Contan’s latest range plastic buckets for the paint and coatings industry.

Contan will showcase its broad range of plastic buckets, specially developed for the coatings industry, at this year’s Propak Cape Exhibition, taking place from 24to 26 October at CTICC.

On display, will be its latest range of 1L and 5L PolyCans, which are suitable for both water and solvent-based paints and coatings. Paint manufacturers can now present water and solvent-based products selling under the same brand name, in the same packaging for consistent brand identity.

One such product to be featured is the PolyCan’s secure tamper-evident lid. Tamper-evidence can be broken by hand and the lid removed without the need for a screwdriver. This tool-free opening and resealing makes painting easier for a wider spectrum of consumers and prevents mess or injury whilst struggling to remove the lid.

The 5L PolyCan also has a carry handle, which is ultrasonically welded onto the bucket instead of piercing a hole through the side wall. This maintains maximum strength and prevents leaking. The specially welded handle is extremely robust and delivers a neat, flush finish with no protrusions inside.

Contan will also showcase its popular PolyPails, available for paint and coatings in sizes ranging from 1L to 20L, with outstanding quality decoration at an economical price through in-mould labelling (IML). Designs with photo quality images and matt, metallic or even textured finishes are all possible, as well as offset print in six colours.

“We are confident that our diverse range of lightweight, robust plastic paint containers will bring manufacturers savings and reduce their carbon footprint. Contan is a sustainable supplier partner which assumes responsibility for the end life of our packaging through active participation with POLYCO,” says Karl Lambrecht, Chief Executive of Contan.

“Contan is committed to extended producer responsibility, paying voluntary levies which go towards reducing packaging waste to landfill, and driving recycling initiatives which create jobs and protect our environment. This is essential, for Contan and its customers, to minimise the environmental impact of post-consumer polypropylene pails; and is a bold step towards an inclusive and environmentally sustainable future which helps to create thousands of income-earning opportunities and jobs through recycling projects. Together, the combined efforts of POLYCO and its members diverted 177 000 recycled tonnes of post-consumer polyolefins from landfill in 2016 alone, positively contributing around R1.7 billion to the country’s GDP,” says Lambrecht.
