Using its advanced in-mould labelling technology, RPC Superfos has produced a limited-edition 50th anniversary pack for French paint brand Cofabrill.

Cofabrill indoor paint has been a favourite among French professional painters since its introduction by Zolpan in 1966. It is easy to apply, renders great coverage and has a shiny texture. To mark its anniversary, Zolpan decided to produce a limited edition pack in a golden SuperLift Extra container from RPC Superfos.

The company's graphic design agency created beautiful artwork comprising a background of golden waves, but the test result from the pail with offset decoration did not deliver the desired look. RPC Superfos therefore suggested using In-Mould Labelling, where the Pantone colour system is replaced with metallic colours.

"We're pleasantly surprised to see how well our anniversary pack in golden shades now looks thanks to the advanced in-mould labelling technique applied by RPC Superfos", says Marion Masse, Communication Executive of Zolpan, which is part of the Cromology Group.

"They’ve given us excellent advice and we’ve felt absolutely well guided throughout the project. The container looks magnificent and we really like the final result. It's an appropriate way of celebrating our golden anniversary with one of our most popular products.”

The 17.5 litre SuperLift Extra container is injection moulded in polypropylene. It features tamper evidence and a protective collar that safeguards the lid and prevents ovalisation of the container.

RPC Superfos provides the plastic containers for all of Zolpan’s water-based paint products.

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.

Advanced in-mould labelling from RPC Superfos has been a critical factor in the successful relaunch of a range of high-quality paints and primers from Bosnia and Herzegovina paint company BAUklar. The injection moulded SuperOval pail feature close-up drawings of tigers with striking details and appeal that form the essential visual communication of the pack. In-Mould Labelling (IML) makes it possible to reproduce even the finest details of the tiger design, so that end- users can almost feel that they can touch the whiskers.

An innovative spoon-in-the-lid from RPC Superfos for its popular 75mm container is guaranteed to make yogurts, desserts and other dairy products stand out from the crowd. The new solution is perfect for consumers who eat on-the-go, with the foldable polypropylene spoon simple to access, assemble and use. The APET lid features a fine PET seal that is easy to tear off. As such, it represents a significant improvement over similar lids which are sealed with aluminium foil, and thus oblige the user to find the spoon with which to eat the product.
