Coatings for Cans and Closures
Henkel offers a range of coating materials for both the internal and external surfaces of can products and closures. These coatings are designed to prevent metal corrosion, protect package contents from the influence of metal, ensure proper adhesion of sealing compounds, and allow graphics printing on the exterior of can products.

Oxygen Scavenging Technology
Oxygen ingress into the packaging causes reduction of shelf life and may result in product spoilage, as flavor deterioration, color change, haze formation and nutriment depletion. DAREX Packaging Technologies' proprietary Oxygen Scavenging Technology (OST) provides a solution to problems of oxygen trapped during the filling process and oxygen ingress over time.
