RPC a roaring success for car care specialist

RPC's multi-process capabilities across its divisions has enabled newly-established car care and finishing specialist Roar Advanced Finishing to source the majority of its packaging requirements from one supplier.

RPC Superfos UK is supplying 1 and 2.5 litre polypropylene Paintainers®; RPC Promens Industrial Rushden is producing a 1 litre HDPE bottle; and PET Power has been able to meet Roar's need for a 1 litre PET bottle as well.

Established by a group of professionals with over 30 years' experience within the car refinish, automotive and composite finishing industries, Roar has developed a wide range of both professional and consumer products for the global market.

The variety of products calls for a number of different packaging formats but essential requirements for all packs are that they are practical, functional and reflect the quality image of the company, as director Rob Wilkinson explains:

"For these types of specialist products it is particularly important that the packaging is robust and provides effective protection. At the same time, the packs need to look good and be easy to use. Having worked with RPC before, I knew we could rely on the company to meet these requirements reliably and consistently."

The packs are being used for products such as Extreme Wax (the PET bottle), Extreme Fine Grade for removal of swirl marks (HDPE bottle) and Speed Cut Compound for removal of sanding marks (Paintainer). All feature Roar's distinctive orange and black colours to create high impact branding and effective on-shelf presence.

The HDPE and PET bottles are produced in orange and black respectively and both incorporate a large decoration area for glossy wraparound labels. For the Paintainers, the use of in-mould labelling provides all over coverage for a high quality decorative effect combined with room for detailed instructions on usage of the product.

"Plastic has proved to be a highly versatile material in meeting the needs of many of our products", concludes Rob Wilkinson. "RPC is equally versatile in enabling us to source so many different pack types from one supplier and the pedigree of the company's technical abilities is evident in all these containers."
