Dispensers that perform flawlessly, differentiate on shelf and reduce impact on the environment

Grow your sustainability story with Silgan Dispensing's portfolio

At Silgan Dispensing, we leverage our expertise to create dispensing solutions that make a difference for our customers, and theirs. With consumers more environmentally conscious than ever before, making a difference means creating dispensers that not only perform flawlessly and differentiate on the shelf, but also reduce impact on the environment.

Silgan Dispensing is your partner in solving sustainability challenges through a broad portfolio of products featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic.

Our PCR portfolio of locally made dispensers, fine mist sprayers, trigger sprayers and closures use up to 98% PCR while meeting the same stringent requirements for performance as non-PCR options. The Silgan Dispensing PCR portfolio has been developed using one of three types of PCR:

  • Raw PCR
    Collected, sorted and processed PR plastics
  • Pre-colored Raw PCR
    Collected, sorted, cleaned and in-process colored black
  • “Food-grade” PCR
    Raw PCR that has undergone an additional sterilization process to be food-contact eligible, earning a “Letter of Non-Objection” from the FDA

Silgan Dispensing's expanding portfolio of new PCR products includes more than 80 color options for select projects and regions, incorporating a wide range of dispensers, sprayers, triggers and closures manufactured using recovered materials.

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.

Silgan Dispensing stands out from the crowd and increases brand loyalty through premiumization

More and more these days, our customers are looking to be different, driven by consumer demand for a more premium brand experience. Brands consistently are seeking to stand out to capture consumers’ attention through thoughtful consideration of packaging design. Premiumization, a trend that started a handful of years ago, continues to gain steam as brands seek to create a better experience for customers.
