Coating and Surface Technology
We understand that surface coating developments, both metallic and organic, enhance the performance of steel packaging bringing new performance capabilities to the steel can.
Steel for packaging offers a material solution that fits with a wide variety of products, containment solutions and dispensing functions. Whether it is to contain a highly corrosive product safely, or to preserve vitamins in sensitive foods, we have specialists who are capable of developing new coatings and surface technologies.
Coatings play an important role in the can-making process. For example, we can evaluate what is needed to maintain high production speeds on our customers' lines and develop surfaces which offer the best welding performance during can making.
Our Innovation Centre has proven experience and reliability in both surface and coating development support from pack testing to pilot production facilities.
