In the aerosol category, the Fa Sport Ultimate Dry impact extruded can won a silver award.

"Leveraging our know-how and technological expertise to provide a competitive advantage is a key tenet of Ball's Drive for 10 vision," said Jay Billings, vice president of innovation for Ball's global metal beverage segment. "Our persistent focus on innovation enables us to provide industry-leading packaging solutions that help build our customers' brands. This recognition of our beverage and aerosol packaging innovations is an honor and a testament to this focus and our investments in technology and innovation over the years."

The Coors Light "World's Most Refreshing Can" combines several different innovative features, including a double-vented wide mouth for a smoother pour, a Frost Brew ® liner to lock in the Frost Brewed ® taste, cold-activated mountains and two-stage cold indicators.

Launched in early April, the winning Coca-Cola can features Ball's newly developed Dynamark™ variable printing technology, which can be integrated into the existing printing process for all sizes of steel and aluminum cans. By enabling up to 24 different monochromatic graphic elements to be added to a defined vacant area of, or supplemental to, the basic can design. Dynamark can incorporate logos, icons or individualized messages into the can appearance. Dynamark™ allows variability in the graphic design at normal production speed.

The Fa Sport Ultimate Dry deodorant can, a collaboration between Ball and Henkel, is a lighter, extruded aluminum can made using Ball's revolutionary metal technology, which utilizes recycled aluminum to create a metal alloy that exhibits increased strength and allows lightweighting of the container without affecting package integrity. This breakthrough technology allows Ball to lightweight its extruded aluminum aerosol packaging by as much as 10 percent, with further lightweighting expected in the future.
