NCS - expert in metal IBC for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry

Our metal IBC containers designed for the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry have been specially-engineered and designed to meet the requirements of these sectors. Cosmetics and/or pharmaceutical products require constant quality checks and tests, for which it is essential you receive a solution that ensures the efficacy and integrity of your product's properties throughout storage and transport. Using our containers, your product is isolated from the outside world and remains intact, uncontaminated by particles or air, and unaffected by temperature. All our standard metal containers are engineered and designed by our Engineering Design Office to meet current international regulations. We carry out checks at each design stage to guarantee manufacturing quality.

We offer a specific range of discharge systems with different valve types. All our containers are ADR/UN-approved, which involves a series of tests including resistance, pressurisation, etc. In order to meet all of our customers’ requirements, we offer containers in different materials, such as: 304L/316L/316TI STAINLESS STEEL, S235/S355 STEEL, 5754/6081T6 ALUMINIUM. 

Our range containers designed for the cosmetics industry are available with different valve types:

  • Butterfly valve from DN 25 to DN 300
  • Ball valve from DN 50 to DN 80

We can also respond to specific requests − all our containers are fully configurable (removable base, delivery nozzles, valve type, seal type, etc.).
