HMG Paints has unveiled new packaging for its water based range of products. The new packaging utilises recycled content to manufacture the containers and the process and materials used also means the final container can be recycled.

The new range of 2.5 Litre and 5 Litre packaging will launch at the beginning of 2023. According to the company, the new containers perform to the same standard as virgin material and also include a new livery design for HMG’s range of water based and decorative products. The Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) containers allow HMG to reduce the use of virgin material and offer full recyclability of the new containers in appropriate PP recycling streams due to monomaterial construction.

“Growing the circular economy”

“At HMG we’re always looking at ways to improve our sustainability and these new PCR containers have been a long-term project for us,” commented Helen Clark, HMG Paints Purchasing Manager. “The use of PCR containers contributes to growing the circular economy. This helps reduce negative impact on climate change, whilst maintaining the same performance and standards you would expect from regular containers, something which was key for us and our customers.”
