Roberts PolyPro Introduces New Can Handle That Helps Sell Craft Beer

Date: November 3, 2016

CHARLOTTE, NC — Roberts PolyPro, powered by Pro Mach, utilized advanced design tools and the rapid prototyping capabilities of 3D printers to develop eye catching can carrying handles for two, four, and six packs of craft beer. Smaller breweries can opt to hand apply the handles and later, as sales increase, invest in a Roberts PolyPro applicator. Furthermore, the handles are an affordable and flexible option for packing craft brews. In addition, the Roberts PolyPro handles consume 30 percent less plastic than old style handles without compromised holding strength. (Roberts PolyPro Pack Expo Booth S-3814)

The handles are available in any Pantone Matching System (PMS) color. Brewers will choose a vibrant PMS color that most attractively complements the can’s graphic design. These new high density polyethylene (HDPE) handles are 100 percent recyclable. On outings, the handles can be reapplied to cans for convenient carrying home to refrigerators for unopened cans or to recycling bins for empties. The handles allow the cans to be closely stacked for efficient packing.

“Tabs that push to hold and lift to remove give the new handles their distinctive appearance,” said Richard Brothers, Product Manager at Roberts PolyPro. “We know that craft brewers want to convey distinctiveness. We designed these new handles with that intent. When people view these handles, their first reaction is to reach out and examine them. What better way to capture product attention on crowded store shelves?”
