Paints & Waxes

  • Premium packaging for leading paints & wax companies

P. Wilkinson Containers supply leading paints & wax companies with a wide range of packaging solutions.

We have developed our range of products to cater for water based paints, solvents, waxes, pastes, fillers & coatings. Our different packaging solutions offer a variety of features such as folded & printed side seams, tactile warnings, bespoke sizes, non standards or UN approval. We offer bespoke artwork options (IML & labelled & printed) in order to create and promote your brand. We also offer embossing on many of our metal products.

The materials used in these ranges spread through tin plated steel, poly coated steel, PP, PET and HDPE plastics - some of which are suitable for aggressive solvents, and others give perfect product clarity. If you are unsure what packaging may suit your paint or wax application, then please contact one of our team for more advice - or select from one of the ranges below for more product images and information.

The dye is suitable for natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, viscose, wool and silk as well as a range of manmade fibres.  It can also be used for dying fabric details such as buttons and feathers, making it ideal for costumes and theatrical props.

In August 2019, the brand launched a larger 750ml can. The classic lever lid tin is supplied by P Wilkinson Containers and is produced at our London factory using solar power. It joins the current 500ml product currently available on the market.

Thorndown Paints

Thorndown Paints, based near Glastonbury in Somerset, is a modern specialist paint manufacturer creating interior and exterior wood and innovative, peelable glass paint.

Founded by husband and wife team, Ben Thornborough and Caroline Thornborough, Thorndown’s brand is heavily inspired by its West Country heritage and its 48 colour palette is named after local fauna and flora and heritage spots in Somerset.

The company needed a reliable and nimble packaging supplier that could meet the demands of increasing product orders.

Thorndown paints

Eco-friendly and easy to use packaging

Thorndown’s eco-friendly, water-based paints are non-toxic, virtually VOC-free (volatile organic compounds) and halogen-free.  The wood paint has long-lasting UV protection and can be diluted to create a stained effect.   Made from 100 per cent recycled plastics, the peelable glass paint can be used straight onto glass surfaces and simply removed by peeling it off.

It was important Ben Thornborough – Thorndown that the paint’s packaging represented the same ethos as the company – easy to use and environmentally friendly.

To fit this brief, P. Wilkinson Containers’ London factory produced unique metal cans which have a wider diameter of 176mm than a standard 2.5 litre can, making it easier for decorators, DIYers and tradesman to dip a brush into the paint.  The cans also have more air space above the paint level making it easier to mix and stir the paint inside when open.

The team also created a special embossing tool which allowed the paint’s logo to be stamped on all sizes of paint can lids from the smallest 150ml to 750ml and 2.5 litres.  The manufacturing line also applies the digitally printed labels, which have a velvety, tactile finish and features Thorndown’s iconic fox or crab motif, to each paint can.

Quick turn around

 

“P. Wilkinson Containers’ ability to turn around packaging within a three-week period, half the time of other suppliers, has been essential to the growth of Thorndown Paints. We are able to order smaller quantities of packaging as and when we needed it, saving on valuable storage space,” Ben Thornborough, Thorndown Paints, Managing Director.

Wilkinson Containers is able to hold packaging on-site at its warehouse ready on demand for Thorndown Paints.
