At Cannex, Tata Steel International Americas presented a full range of high-quality packaging steels, leading the way with Protact laminated steel for three-piece cans. A proven material solution across several can-making applications, including two-piece cans, Protact now is applicable for three-piece can makers. The multi-layered polymer coating system is designed to free capacity and simplify three-piece can-making operations, the company says. The company’s new Protact lamination line can laminate sheet steel up to 1220mm in width. Protact is available in a range of colors including clear, black, gold and white, providing even greater creative scope when using metal for packaging. A new steelmaking technique, the Hlsarna technology, is designed to improve the sustainability credentials of steel while enabling the company to increase capacity and efficiency.
