DS Containers applies Daiwa’s polymer-coating technology to produce steel aerosol cans that address the limitations of steel and are suitable for personal care items. The polymer-coated steel that is applied as part of the coil-making process at Corus Packaging Plus in Europe combines the integrity of steel with the versatility and protective properties of plastic. Finished cans are scratch, corrosion and rust-resistant, eliminating the need for interior and exterior coatings that are used in conventional can-manufacturing.
