Westech Aerosol Packaging Gets a MakeoverWestech Aerosol announces a sleek new look in labeling and design for aerosol cans. Consumers will be pleased with the sleek new can and bold design of the new heat shrink label. The aerosol cans have also been upgraded with a new, full cup actuator with fan insert. The actuator has a large, ergonomic button to help relieve fingertip fatigue and increase ease of use. The new design will be incorporated onto all of Westech's aerosol cans in the next three months.

Aerosol cans have always complimented Westech's line of canister adhesives, and the new packaging presents a more contemporary look.
