Composite Cans
July 2017 Update

Tinplate prices softened by 3% in July and OPP and PET films were mostly flat to modestly lower this month.  The largest impact on composite can costs is the upward pressure on uncoated recycled boxboard in all regions.  This has been driven by sharply higher recycled paper costs, particularly old corrugated containers.  Old corrugated container (OCC) moved higher in July after stabilizing in May / June.
