Britain‘s Best New Aerosol of the Year 26 Spray December 2016 BAMA award winners announced Winner: Permalock by CRC Industries UK LTD Permalock is a new aerosol closure that was developed to specifically help eliminate the risk of foreign body product contamination while servicing or maintaining food and beverage production. It is a non-detachable spray system with dual position spray. The aerosol has no detachable pieces that can fall off which could lead to contamination of goods and exposing food manufacturers and processors to product recalls. It was described by the judges as “a small change in technology that has provided a great benefit and helps prevent accidental loss of caps or valves which might otherwise lead to costly recalls.” Permalock was also awarded runner-up in the Aerosol Packaging Award category. Aerosol Packaging Award Winner: Ball Corporation Fa Men Attraction Force Aerosol Deodorant won for its use of the ReAl light-weight can, a lighter extruded aluminum can manufactured with new metal technology.
