The design also features marked measurements along the strip. 


Pratt Oils

Gigalube / Pratt Oils wanted a traditional style motor oil can for their new product – the company’s own brand of motor oil. The motor oil is filled and packed in the UK, before being shipped to Sweden so packaging needed to be UN approved for hazardous materials and suitable for stacking for ease of transportation.

P Wilkinson Containers supplied a bespoke 5L oblong can with a metal handle and a 38mm metal threaded neck and screw cap closure. The clients wanted the traditional look and feel of an old fashioned motor oil can, and the oblong shape best reflected the design brief. The bespoke print was managed by Wilkinsons and contributed to the premium finish of the cans.

Gigalube / Pratt Oils were delighted with the final packs, which also enjoyed excellent environmental credentials (fully recyclable) and thanks to their shape, did not lose any space on transport pallets.
