From the paint market there is a growing request for a pronounced and a more prominent packaging. The SHACAN or ‘shaped can’ is Hildering Packaging’s response to this request. Hildering developed a tin can packaging to show that the shape of a paint tin is no longer restricted to the traditional round shape. The SHACAN is the perfect packaging to distinctively put your product in the market.
We have several standard round shapes for the SHACAN where the shape of the body advances the user friendliness and strengthens the brand name. Unique feature is the possibility to have the packaging in your own shape, this at surprisingly low tooling costs.
The SHACAN tin can packaging is produced the conventional cylindrical way, thereafter it is pneumatically pressed into the desired shape. At the moment ‘shaping’ is possible for the sizes 500 up to 750 ml. Other sizes are being developed.
The SHACAN is suited for offset or digital printing. Digital printing gives you the opportunity to order small order numbers with your own design printed on it. Besides printing the packaging, it is possible to print the lid. (see also Colorcan). The lid is the conventional lid (diameter 99 mm), so the filling process is unchanged. The SHACAN is 100% recyclable.
It is our mission to develop a tin can packaging that meets the demands of every user of paint containers. Co-makership or a different form of co-operation is possible. The aim is to form the paint container in such a way that extra advantages will be coupled to the already existing good qualities. The knowledge of our business relations and the end users is invaluable. We would like to know your wishes and that is why we invite you to challenge us, share your ideas with us, etc. This will result in the ultimate paint container of the 21 century.
