ArcelorMittal Europe showcases packaging steels innovations at ADF 2024

The 2024 edition of the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum (ADF) was held in Paris (France) from 17 to 18 January 2024. ArcelorMittal Europe was there to showcase the latest sustainability advances in our steels for packaging.

This includes our new Chromium-Free Passivation Alternative (CFPA) steel which eliminates the use of hexavalent chromium chemicals (also known as Cr(VI) or chromium 6) in the production process. This innovative solution will help the packaging value chain to eliminate CR(VI) from the tinplate passivation process by 2027. Several thousand tonnes of CFPA have already been produced and delivered to customers for testing in various applications.

During ADF 2024, ArcelorMittal Europe provided more details of our low tin coated steel (LTS) which can be used as in place of Electrolytic Chromium Coated Steel (ECCS). ArcelorMittal’s LTS solution is the only 100-percent Cr-free alternative already on the market.

ArcelorMittal Europe is also developing a range of Bisphenol-A Non-Intended (BPA-NI) coil coated products which are also free of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). A BPA-NI coil coated steel for aerosol mounting cups is already available. It can be supplied using our CFPA tinplate to further ensure the sustainability of the product. More news on this development was shared during ADF 2024.
