Aluminum Lined with Epoxide in Metal Containers Helps Avoid Chemical Attacks

The North America nasal spray packaging market is expected to surpass ~121 million units by the end of 2030. However, certain materials such as metals in pump bottles and pressurized canisters are subject to reactivity in raw state of nasal spray formulations. In order to overcome this issue, manufacturers are using aluminum lined with epoxide, vinyl or phenolic resins to avoid reactivity in raw state of nasal spray formulations.

Tin is gaining popularity for being resistant to chemical attacks. However, it is one of the most expensive metals compared to aluminum, iron, and lead.
