Tin is thinly rolled steel plate, mainly used as packaging for food. The use of the tin can for food preservation was invented by the British merchant, Peter Durand in 1810. Modern tin cans comprise two or three sections and are ribbed to make the tin stronger. Most tin cans are designed with an easy-opening pull tab on the lid so they can be opened without a can opener.
The characteristics that denote tin packaging are safe, reliable, environmentally friendly (recyclable) and they make sustainable use of raw materials. This form of packaging also offers numerous possibilities. Contact us to discuss the options without any further obligation.
