Ball collaborates with Lindal and Reabrook for Rainbow hand sanitizer

In a continued effort to help combat the global pandemic, Ball Aerosol Packaging Devizes (UK) has collaborated with Reabrook Ltd and the Lindal Group to design, produce and fill 25,000 cans of Rainbow hand sanitizer.

After 12 weeks of stability testing and other tests, the product has been determined to be effective against all enveloped viruses. The hand sanitizer is packaged in Ball’s aluminum aerosol cans with Lindal’s valve and actuator technology. It is filled on one of Reabrook’s high-speed filling lines and safety checked with leak detection and pressure testing to ensure the product is safe for consumer use.

The products will be divided equally between the three companies to distribute to their local communities.

“At Ball, we are committed to supporting our communities with meaningful and impactful actions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Natalie Cox, Senior Key Account Manager at Ball Aerosol Packaging. “The communities where we live and work are an integral part of who we are, and during this time of great need, we want to share our expertise to fight the virus and protect those near and dear to us.”

She concluded, “We are delighted to work in partnership with Reabrook and Lindal to produce a concrete product to stop the virus from spreading in our communities.”

Ball’s cans feature a design printed using Eyeris HD printing technology and are made from infinitely recyclable aluminum, which can be easily and safely disposed.
