Ball & CCL win World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award 2017
The International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers (Aerobal) stages the World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award every year. In the category ‘Aluminium cans already on the market’, Tag Body Spray from the US producer CCL and the anti-transpirant of Ball Corporation for the Men Expert Series from L’Oréal won joint first place. Tactile, another aluminium can produced by Ball, emerged as the winner in the category ‘Prototype.’
Aerobal secretary general Gregor Spengler commented: “First of all, it was gratifying that such a large number of aluminium aerosol cans were submitted to the competition. This participation shows the high level of acceptance and esteem our members feel for the Aeroabl Award, which they use to document their powers of innovation.
“Beyond that, the numerous prototypes in the competition demonstrate the diverse and exciting possibilities this packaging opens up in the global packaging markets of the future. Not least, the close outcome of the race with a tie for first place also shows the great breadth of quality at the top international level that our members deliver in fierce competition and their constant commitment to the further development of aluminium aerosol cans.”
Commenting on CCL’s winning Tag Body Spray can, the panel of judges said: “A great size and so handy. A wonderful design and a genuine eye-catcher.”
Feedback on Ball’s L’Oréal Men Expert Antiperspirant included: “Excellent visual presence thanks to the colour scheme, shape and finish. Ergonomically designed for easy handling. In addition, it has potential for further weight reduction.”
