Mauser Group launches new plastic tight head drum
Mauser Group has introduced a new plastic tight head drum to meet the packaging needs in the healthcare industry and similar highly regulated branches with special requirements on the packaging material conformity and cleanliness.
The new MAUSER-ring drum H-CareTM is the first industrial plastic packaging derived from the close association between MAUSER and petrochemical company SABIC on the development of new HDPE material for large blow-moulded packaging solutions in the healthcare market.
From cost/performance optimized "fit for purpose" to high performance PG I approved specialities, the MAUSER portfolio on plastic tight head drums today covers multiple needs from various industries.
With the new L-Ring Drum H-CareTM MAUSER adds another high-end benchmark to its European product portfolio, specifically addressing the needs of industries with extra high requirements on packaging and packaging materials regulatory conformity.
The inner layer of L-ring drum H-Care TM is made from the new HDPE material developed by SABIC in close association with MAUSER.
Klaus-Peter Schmidt, Head of Global Product Development and Sustainability Management at MAUSER Group, said, "The new grade of HDPE, SABIC just recently developed in cooperation with us, is another important milestone in our efforts to continuously drive raw material developments for use in industrial packaging.” He also adds, “With our new L-Ring Drum H-CareTM, we are able to offer a particularly reliable packaging solution for customers with very high regulatory requirements, such as in the food or healthcare industry.
"The H-CareTM Drum is our first product launch making use of this new HDPE developed by SABIC. Certainly, we targeted not only drum applications in specific but also other large blow moulding packaging from the beginning of our development cooperation. We are looking forward to expand our business in this area," Mr. Peter adds.
The MAUSER L-Ring Drum H-CareTM is UN-approved for transportation of dangerous goods. It comes with full global and specific migration testing required for EU and US food contact compliance and is produced under GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards.
