FUCHS unveils new small packs for automotive lubricants range

FUCHS has launched new small packs for its automotive range of lubricants. The 1,4 and 5-litre packs are more user-friendly and environmentally sensitive. The range that will have the new packs are TITAN, AGRIFARM, MAINTAIN, PLANTO, and SILKOLENE. The new packaging will be rolled out gradually in the FUCHS companies.

The labels on the packs have been designed for better orientation and ergonomic design for better handling. These labels will enable customers to identify all the relevant information at a glance. Colours, images, and pictograms will help with orientation. For instance, the quality levels of the products are indicated by the colour codes gold, silver, and bronze. Other important information about the lubricant such as the viscosity of the product and area of application – for cars, trucks, or tractors is also given.

“The unique new design makes it easier for our customers to choose the right product, improves user-friendliness, and saves on resources,” said Krisztián Rada, Head of Automotive Aftermarket Division.

The ergonomic design of the bottles facilitates ease of opening without tools, better fit in the hand, and easier user handling. For example, the enlarged opening of the bottle and an optimized neck design allow accurate filling with no drops. Two handles make the 4 and 5-litre bottles more comfortable to carry and facilitate filling. There is also a new tamper-resistant cap that ensures the bottle has not been opened before. The improved bottle shape also makes it possible to pour out even the smallest remaining volume of fluid, allowing complete emptying of the bottles.

In a pursuit to be carbon neutral, the bottle material of the new small packs consist of up to 30 per cent recycled material (PCR) and is 100-per cent recyclable. “Our new small packs are not just intended to be more user-friendly but also contribute to avoiding waste, enable materials to be recycled, and help to reduce carbon footprints. FUCHS will continue to work toward making our packaging continuously more sustainable in the future too,” said Markus Garb, Vice President Sustainability, stating a further objective of the innovation.
