Leading Ukrainian paint producer Meffert Ganza Farben is creating product differentiation in the DIY sector with the re-launch of its paint in the Paintainer® plastic pail from RPC Superfos, replacing the previous metal pack format.

In particular, the trend for paint and lacquer in Ukraine is moving towards packaging with in-mould labelling. As Paintainer® offers superb decoration options using this special technique, Meffert Ganza Farben is now taking the lead, as Sergey Ezholov, Deputy of the General Director of the company, explains:

"We used to apply only metal packaging for our products, but now we also use the Paintainer® plastic packaging solution from RPC Superfos, namely pails in two sizes: 2.7 litres and 5.3 litres. It is a modern, high-quality replacement that perfectly matches our packaging needs."

The use of the injection moulded polypropylene Paintainer® has generated positive reactions, in particular for its graphic finish that perfectly renders the smallest decorative detail.

"Our aim was to find a modern packaging for our paint, making it easily distinguishable on shelf, and together with RPC Superfos we have been successful in reaching this goal," confirms Sergey Ezholov. Having vast experience with both metal and plastic pails, Sergey Ezholov reports that "In our working processes we find that the plastic containers work noticeably well in all stages, including the labelling, filling and packing stages. Contrary to metal, plastic packaging is not subject to deformation and there is no risk of corrosion. Working with the professional team of RPC Superfos has simply been a positive experience."

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.

Advanced in-mould labelling from RPC Superfos has been a critical factor in the successful relaunch of a range of high-quality paints and primers from Bosnia and Herzegovina paint company BAUklar. The injection moulded SuperOval pail feature close-up drawings of tigers with striking details and appeal that form the essential visual communication of the pack. In-Mould Labelling (IML) makes it possible to reproduce even the finest details of the tiger design, so that end- users can almost feel that they can touch the whiskers.

Spoon-in-lid solution for dairy products

An innovative spoon-in-the-lid from RPC Superfos for its popular 75mm container is guaranteed to make yogurts, desserts and other dairy products stand out from the crowd. The new solution is perfect for consumers who eat on-the-go, with the foldable polypropylene spoon simple to access, assemble and use. The APET lid features a fine PET seal that is easy to tear off. As such, it represents a significant improvement over similar lids which are sealed with aluminium foil, and thus oblige the user to find the spoon with which to eat the product.
