From its early beginnings in Cambridge, Mass., the Darex® packaging business has grown to become the world's leader in can sealants and a leading supplier of can coatings and closure sealants for the food and beverage packaging industry, as well as personal care and industrial containers.
Darex developed the first can sealants to replace lead solder in 1921. More than a decade later, the advent of the beer can prompted Darex innovators to develop a new can sealant to preserve purity and taste. And in 1941, responding to the needs of a world at war, the company created a synthetic substitute for natural rubber can and bottle sealants.
Today, Darex helps protect the products of many of the world's most recognized consumer brands. Darex closure sealants, applied to crowns and caps, ensure freshness of many bottled drinks around the world. Its durable can sealants ensure food and beverage freshness and protection from contamination. And Darex offers state-of-the-art coatings formulated without BPA, that match the performance of traditional epoxy can coatings.
