Silgan Dispensing announces first suite of PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic) products

  • Silgan Dispensing Systems

Silgan Dispensing, a global leader in the design, development and distribution of highly engineered pumps and sprayers in the home, health and beauty markets, today announces its first suite of products featuring post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic to help brands better meet their sustainability initiatives. 

Silgan Dispensing’s PCR products include:

  • SD200®: The industry standard for lock-down dispensers.
  • TS800®: One of the most trusted trigger sprayer brands in today’s market.
  • SD®20C: An established market leader for liquid soaps.
  • Mark VII® Max:  A fine-mist sprayer that combines outstanding performance with extremely smooth actuation.

According to a 2017 study, 37 percent of millennials check packaging labels for sustainability – more than any other generation. Silgan Dispensing’s new PCR products will help alleviate the challenges expressed by its customers around this increasingly important issue.

“To consumers, sustainable packaging is more than a ‘nice to have;’ it is something they are demanding of brands more and more,” said Brinder Gill, senior manager, global beauty category development. “Silgan Dispensing’s PCR products give our clients an innovative way to meet this growing consumer need, while also helping achieve their own sustainability goals.”

With the release of these products, Silgan Dispensing is the first company in the world to manufacture a full family of market leading pumps and trigger sprayers with PCR.

Made from previously used plastic diverted from landfills to be re-used in a new product, PCR offers exciting new possibilities to reduce waste and energy use while still achieving the highest levels of performance.

5 factors to consider when selecting an actuator for your aerosol product

For aerosol consumers, the actuator is often the most overlooked part of the product packaging. While they recognize the actuator is the component that dispenses the product, not many are aware that the actuator also controls the fineness of the spray, the amount of product that is dispersed and even how the product is applied. Because the actuator controls the nuances of how a product is dispersed, the actuator can make all the difference in an end user’s experience with a product.
