Unveiling The Art of Can Bottle Patterns

Cans are the go-to packaging choice for many beverages and foods, thanks to their lightness, good seals, and ease of transportability. When we pick up one, the colorful designs often grab our attention - but how are these patterns created? This article will reveal all the secrets of can pattern production!

1. Materials needed to create Can Patterns

Producing can patterns relies heavily on top-grade inks and coatings. These inks and coatings must offer excellent adhesion, weather resistance, wear resistance, as well as color selection to meet different brand or design specifications.

2. Production Process for Can Patterns

  • Substrate Treatment: Prior to printing, the aluminum surface of a can must be thoroughly cleaned and pre-treated to eliminate oil, impurities and oxide layers, in order to maximize ink adhesion.
  • Pattern Design: According to your brand and product's unique attributes, our designer will craft unique patterns and texts which can then be converted into printing files for further production.
  • Printing Process: For can pattern printing, screen or gravure printing technologies are generally utilized. Screen printing uses silk screen as plate material and the ink is applied through it using a scraper; gravure printing utilizes an engraved gravure roller which transfers ink when rolling on its surface of a can.
  • After printing:cans must be put in a drying room or curing oven to be dried and cured to ensure the ink adheres firmly to their surfaces and enhance durability and wear resistance of patterns printed onto them.
  • Subsequent Treatments: Should further treatments such as spraying and laminating become necessary to further enhance waterproof and scratch-resistance of their designs, cans can also be subject to subsequent treatments such as spraying.
