Supertainer from RPC Containers Oakham has been chosen by one of Ireland's leading paint manufacturers for its latest range of premium quality acrylic paints.
Supertainer is the latest innovation in plastic paint can design that delivers a lower carbon footprint and enhanced decoration possibilities, while maintaining the same dimensions for logistics and on-shelf storage.
Castle Paints is using Supertainer for its 2.5 and 5 litre variants, as well as RPC Oakham's standard 1 litre paint can and 5 litre S range can.
Visibly no different to what has gone before, the key change in Supertainer has been to take material out of the container body to match the latest advances in polymer strength and meet sustainability targets.
Supertainer was piloted for 18 months to ensure confidence in its performance, and RPC Oakham has supported the move with considerable investment on production lines.
This includes new equipment developed specifically to handle high-quality in-mould labelling (IML) such as that required by Castle Paints, underlining RPC Oakham's credentials in matching functionality with eye-catching aesthetics.
The artwork was developed from a very basic pen and ink drawing to full high quality IML pails and paint cans, as a result of close cooperation between the customer and RPC Oakham's artwork team.
Castle Paints manufactures a wide range of premium quality decorative paints available in a vast array of colours and finishes, perfect for every surface inside and outside the home. Its new comprehensive colour range is specifically designed to cater for the requirements of the Irish market.
Ronan Spollen of Castle Paints says: "We are fully committed to ensuring our products are designed to cater for the requirements of Irish businesses and the Irish consumer – and that includes the high quality RPC containers we use."
