Ball Corporation and Henkel Beauty Care have created an even lighter version of ReAl, which uses Ball’s recycled aluminium to create a metal alloy that is strong but light. The new version is now 15% lighter than the previous iteration.
"ReAl is a material that is stronger, formable and compatible with Ball's existing aerosol can lines," said Dan Rabbitt, Vice President, Ball Aerocan. "For companies like Henkel, who continually drive for more sustainable packaging, this means that they can achieve their goals without sacrificing design or shelf presence. Everyone wins with ReAl – the customer, the consumer and the environment."
