ArcelorMittal’s smarter steels solutions for aerosols were on show during Paris Packaging Week

ArcelorMittal Europe’s Packaging team presented our latest smart steel solutions for aerosols at the 2023 edition of the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum (ADF) on 25 and 26 January. Held annually in Paris (France) as part of Paris Packaging Week, ADF is the leading forum in the global aerosol and dispensing sector.

ArcelorMittal showcased a prototype aerosol which makes full use of our smarter high strength steels for aerosols. The high strength of the steel in the 52 mm aerosol can (Brimful 210 ml) means that less steel is required, leading to a 17-percent weight saving. Combining ArcelorMittal’s XCarb® green steel certificates with the weight reduction from our latest high strength steels has a huge impact on reducing COemissions. With this combination, the CO2 impact of the prototype aerosol is lowered by 82 percent compared to the reference container.

Parts of the aerosol are made with chromium-free passivated tinplate (CFPA) to further enhance the sustainability of the solution. CFPA also improves the wettability of the can’s surface, opening new possibilities for decoration, lacquering, and brand differentiation.
