Ace Introduces Plastic Paint Can

Monday, July 13, 2009

Comment | More

Ace Paint is celebrating its silver anniversary with plastic—recyclable plastic cans for its entire paint line. The company says the plastic cans:
 
• Will eliminate dents, for a professional/unmarred appearance at retail.
• Will reduce retailer claims for dented cans, which should save money and improve the consumer experience.
• Minimize rusting.
• Are made of recycled contents and can be recycled.

The change in materials will not affect wholesale cost, Ace Paint says.

Change has come slowly to paint cans. Ace Paint’s new cans will keep the traditional paint-can shape, making the initiative among the first of its kind for a major paint supplier.

In 2002, Sherwin-Williams’ Dutch Boy brand rolled out a plastic jug-type Twist & Pour gallon container with twist-off lid, handle and pour spout. The same year, Behr Process Corp. was honored for its use of post-consumer recycled resin in its paint cans.

Ace Paint is also is in the process of researching and pursuing eco-friendly certification for select paint lines through a third-party organization.
