An aerosol is a suspension of fine solid particles or liquid droplets in a gas. The criteria for packaging of aerosols involves speed, simplicity, spray projection, cleanliness, freshness. Aerosol comes in metal containers (tin, aluminum) but now a days metal containers are replaced with plastic containers as it provides advantages like light weight (lower storage and transport costs, improved ergonomics and user friendliness), increased safety (no highly flammable propellants, no poisonous gases that might be inhaled) , environmentally friendly ( no propellants and no volatile organic hydrocarbons, less household chemical waste and possible reuse, transparency , no rust ,compatible with current filling lines, it can be decorated by new ways like shrink labels etc. It provides benefits for consumers in having different designs, texture and touch appeal. It provides secondary advantages which are not decisive at the time of purchase) like shelf-life, accuracy of the dose delivered, ease of use while carrying. These attributes give the plastic aerosol market a radiant future, particularly in the case of non-flammable, low-pressure products. PET is used as a major raw material as it READ MORE >
