HMG boosts its Green credentials
Independent paint manufacturer HMG Paints has introduced 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.
HMG’s range contains products such as Vinyl Matt Emulsion, Acrylic Eggshell and Fence and Shed Paint, all of which will carry the British Coatings Federation “Low” VOC globe.
Growing the circular economy
“At HMG we’re always looking at ways to improve our sustainability and these new PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled) 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.”
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 PCR containers allow HMG to reduce their use of virgin material and offer full recyclability of the new containers.
