Salvalco has said that, with the increasing costs and reduced availability of butane, it is seeing enhanced demand for aerosol alternatives - such as nitrogen propellant.
The aerosol industry has been no outlier in being affected by the soaring price of natural gas and the unpredictable supply chain, and so customers have been seeking out more accessible and cost-effective options.
Salvalco noted its alternative, high-performance aerosol solution is available in Eco-Valve. Powered by inert gas, and now in the form of a new optimised valve, the company said that customers are using this time to make a change and subsequently enjoying the many advantages of the technology.
Major brands such as Nivea and Rossman who currently use Evo-Valve across a number of their aerosol lines are reaping the benefits, Salvalco said. The combination of market conditions alongside Eco-Valve's growing reputation in the market is resulting in "an increasingly high number of enquiries from brands also wanting to make the switch."
As well as the benefits of performance, reduced costs and availability, the switch to nitrogen also provides other advantages, added the company. The most obvious one is the impact on the environment through the reduction of VOCs and hydrocarbons.
Eco-Valve is also giving brands the opportunity to benefit from a number of significant marketing claims too including a zero hydrocarbon propellant, that reduces carbon footprint; offering twice as much product formula in the can; the possibility to use more organic and natural formulations which are normally incompatible with LPG propellant; a fine-mist spray that is ideally suited for formulations containing natural ingredients.
Peter Shaw, managing director, Salvalco said: “With the challenging market conditions, we are all facing, we are proud to be able to have available a tried and tested, high-performing valve alternative. As the industry leading inert gas aerosol propelled aerosol valve technology, coupled with the launch of our newly optimised valve, we are already seeing an increasing number of enquiries from brands wanting to make the change.
"Our vision was always to support the industry and environment by creating a different kind of aerosol technology, that’s kinder to people and plant but still offers a superior spray quality. And we feel we have achieved just that – making Eco-Valve a win-win solution for all!
"With our dedicated and friendly team, at Salvalco, we are on hand to answer any questions you may have and help customers make a seamless transition. So, if you are considering the switch or are ready to make a move to nitrogen propellant, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”
