Introducing Silgan Dispensing’s PCR packaging solutions

6.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste resides in landfills, and this figure is expected to double by 2050. Many brands are increasingly seeking more sustainable packaging options—driven in large part by consumer demand. 88% less energy total is used for producing PCR vs, virgin materials.

Post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic is one-way brands can reach their packaging sustainability goals. PCR is made from previously used plastic diverted from landfills to be used in new products. PCR offers exciting new possibilities to reduce waste while still achieving the highest levels of performance.

With Silgan Dispensing’s PCR portfolio, brands get:

  • Broad range of market-leading dispensing solutions
  • Demonstrated expertise in manufacturing solutions with PCR resins
  • Industry-leading color library with more than 80 options
  • Reliable global supply chain with manufacturing sites in Europe

5 factors to consider when selecting an actuator for your aerosol product

For aerosol consumers, the actuator is often the most overlooked part of the product packaging. While they recognize the actuator is the component that dispenses the product, not many are aware that the actuator also controls the fineness of the spray, the amount of product that is dispersed and even how the product is applied. Because the actuator controls the nuances of how a product is dispersed, the actuator can make all the difference in an end user’s experience with a product.
