Its position on the market is the confirmation of a clear ACTEGA Artística leadership in sealant solutions for beverage packaging.

Water-based Sealants have an additional impact on the sustainability of metal cans, as the 100% recyclable packaging. Therefore, ACTEGA Artística is also engaged in new sustainable initiatives of conversion from solvent-based to water-based sealant operations.
