For over 106 years, J.L. Clark has pioneered in the fabrication and decorating of steel containers for packaging. Now, we're applying these same capabilities to containers made from aluminum. Our new line of aluminum containers is ideal for a wide range of water-based consumer health and beauty products such as those for hair care and moisturizers. Unlike steel, aluminum doesn't require the thermoformed cup or other barrier to protect it from corrosion. So it's simpler, easier and more economical to package almost any water-based product. In addition, the new aluminum containers are exceptionally 'sustainable', since they're 100% recyclable and very lightweight to reduce both shipping energy costs and emissions.
Tooling for the first six aluminum structures, all with different design features and/or dimensions, has already been developed, making it much simpler, faster and cost-effective for customers to begin benefiting from aluminum packaging. J.L. Clark can also apply all of its resources, capabilities and experience to best meet the special requirements of aluminum container fabrication and decorating, according to J.L. Clark Vice President, Sales & Marketing Michael Matus.
"Highly decorative steel packaging, while very desirable for many water-based products such as those used for hair care needs protection from corrosion," says Mr. Matus. "But with our new aluminum containers, these same products can be packaged in the same fashion, with beautiful lithography, but without the cost or secondary operations required to protect against corrosion. Additionally, aluminum can be recycled alongside your average soda can."
Each of the six aluminum containers feature unique size and characteristics to meet a wide range of applications. All can be decorated with J.L. Clark's award-winning lithography capabilities.
