Accelstyle 100 and Accelstyle 200 both have high abrasion resistance for conventional two-piece aluminum beer and beverage cans and can be seamlessly introduced into existing production processes.
AkzoNobel said this allows can makers to transition to coatings that are free from materials of concern and remain as commercially viable as possible.
Accelstyle 100, matches the performance of AkzoNobel’s standard polyester OPV with excellent can line mobility and pasteurization performance, as well as resistance to necker tooling line pick up.
Similarly, Accelstyle 200 offers coating mobility comparable to conventional gloss OPV’s, and it is BPA-Ni, PFAS-free and Styrene-free.
Chris Bradford, industrial coatings marketing director at AkzoNobel, said: “We are inviting coil coaters, can makers or brand owners who want to move away from materials of concern to start testing our new solutions now so that they can take advantage of new technologies at the right time for them.”
