G3-HD is Ball’s next generation of steel aerosol packaging.  The integrated dome design is the product of a high speed, coil-to-can manufacturing process and features high definition graphics to meet customers’ growing expectations for their brands.  Moving beyond traditional steel aerosol manufacturing, G3-HD is designed to control sidewall thickness to accommodate various specifications.

“Ball’s G3-HD demonstrates our on-going commitment to innovative packaging solutions that help our customers grow their business,” said Jim Peterson, Senior VP &COO, Global Metal Food & Household Products Packaging.

The infinitely recyclable G3-HD is available in multiple sizes and utilizes Ball’s advanced technology to provide a brighter and whiter canvas to accommodate up to eight-color, high resolution customer graphics.
