Tata Steel will present its full range of high quality packaging steels and new product developments at Metpack this year, leading the way with Protact laminated steel for three-piece cans.
Already a proven material solution across a number of canmaking applications, including two piece cans, Protact has now been developed for three-piece canmakers. Its multi-layered polymer coating system is designed to free capacity and simplify three-piece canmaking operations.
At Metpack, Protact will be presented in a range of colours including clear, black, gold and white, providing even greater creative scope when using metal for food packaging.
High strength steel provides opportunities for downgauging for easy-open ends. A Metpack stand highlight will be Tata Steel’s latest range of nitrogenised steel based products developed to provide greater strength, while still ensuring the easy-open functionality of can ends.
And meeting the latest packaging materials legislation head on, Tata Steel has developed an ECCS replacement product resulting in TCCT, a coated steel which, presented for the first time at Metpack, delivers the stringent requirements of REACH legislation.
