Innovel HPS internal protective spray approved
PPG Industries’ packaging coatings business has announced that Innovel HPS’ internal protective spray lacquers for the beverage can industry, have been approved for use on aluminium and steel beverage cans.
Innovel HPS internal sprays are pale-gold water-based acrylic polymer resin coatings which conform to North American and European regulations, including the second phase of French regulations concerning BPA (bisphenol A) that will take effect in January 2015.
“Innovel HPS internal spray coatings provide high-performance solutions,” Dave Cole, PPG vice president says. “They have excellent pack resistance, fulfilling the critical requirements of beverage brand owners, and they protect against a wide range of beverages including highly acidic drinks such as ciders, energy drinks and carbonated soft drinks. In addition, the coatings have enhanced flavor-neutral properties to accommodate flavor-sensitive products such as water, and their effective pasteurization and retort capabilities make the coatings suitable for a broad range of filling goods such as waters, soda drinks, beers, ciders, coffees, teas and juices.”
