Excellent test result for Klann tins
A high percentage of tinplate packagings in the European trade is of Asian origin – a motive for KLANN to explain the difference to our “Made in Germany” products in a comprehensible way to our customers. For this purpose tinplate metal packagings made by KLANN were tested by means of accepted scientific methods of the renowned Fraunhofer institute and compared with products by mainly Chinese manufacturers.
Based on product samples imported from China from a total of 22 manufacturers especially for testing purposes, evidence has been made that KLANN guarantees in nearly all cases a significantly higher overall-quality of the tinplate packaging.
In detail, evidence could be made that tinplate packagings produced by KLANN
- show a higher colour fastness along the whole tin shape, especially at the strains, ie. they have less “frosting”,
- show a lower corrodibility by means of their thicker print and varnish film, especially at the curls,
- have a more even and thicker print and varnish film on all surfaces and the resulting lower porosity further decreases the corrodibility, as well as
- have a better print and varnish adhesion on tinplate, resulting in a lower vulnerability to scratches.
