Colep collaborates with Henkel on light weight cans for Syoss brand

Colep has collaborated with Henkel to deliver light weight tinplate cans for the brand owner’s professional hair styling brand Syoss. The supplier has developed the new packaging solution in a move to provide customers with a more sustainable packaging solution which uses less materials, energy and water.

Reduced weight

Combining mathematical models, process investments and new materials, we are reducing the material consumption in the three metal components. In this case, we are reducing the wall thickness of the aerosols by around 22%, using ‘double reduction’ material - harder material with lower thickness wall - in combination with a new seaming station. In this way, we can obtain the same performance, mechanical and chemical resistance assuring all the safety requests,” explains Jose Oliveira, Colep Industrial Director Metal Packaging.

As a consequence, the Syoss hair styling aerosol cans have been reduced by 18% in weight.

Our continued commitment to reduce our environmental footprint by teaming up with strategical suppliers to work on sustainable joint development projects has been proven again with Colep. Finally, the new double-reduced tinplate aerosol cans deliver an important contribution to reach our corporate sustainability goals to achieve more with less and enable us to save up to 1,000 tons of CO2,” commented Philippe Blank, Head of Packaging Innovation & Sustainability at Henkel’s Beauty Care Division.

The light weight cans are being used for 400ml and 500ml hairspray products in the following main brands: Syoss, Indola, Silhouette, Coiffeur and Rilken.
