Custom Tin Packaging
Why are tin cans ribbed?
The answer is quite simple and straightforward.
- Ribbing on Tin Cans strengthens the tin. You can see the general principle in cardboard. The center is corrugated because a little paper can add a lot of strength that way. The can is curved and the ridges reduce your ability to dent the can with normal handling. Compare to a typical aluminum soda can that has thinner walls and no corrugation of the metal. It’s pretty easy to dent empty soda cans with hand pressure. The area of the food can with the ridges will be quite hard to dent with hand pressure.
- Furthermore, the ridges on tins allow it to expand and contract. As part of the canning process, filled cans are often heated to cook and sterilise the contents. This can build up a fair amount of pressure, and the ridges let the can handle that without splitting.
- Not all tin cans require ribbing. The sides of the can are ribbed to increase the strength of the can and provide protection against the high temperatures and vacuum pressures of thermal processing and boiling preservation during the canning process. Certain products such as coffee does not require the cans to undergo such procedures and thus you will often find coffee cans with no ribbing at all.
EPOL LIDS | Alufix Peel-Off Lids | Easy Peel-Off Lids
The easy-peelable Alufix Dry membrane for sealing onto tinplate rings provides the can with a safe and convenient closure solution for canned goods. With its aluminium layer, Alufix Dry offers the best possible protection for all dry products which do not require heat treatment after filling.
The Easy Peel-Off Lid (EPOL) is a technology in the food packaging industry, which is gaining market share with respect to the well known Easy Open End (EOE) closure. The EPOL is easier to open and to produce than the EOE closure and consists of two parts: the protact ring and the alufix. The protact ring is made of polymer coated steel and the alufix is an aluminum foil, which is often coated with a peelable PolyPropylene (PP) layer. The polymer layers of protact and alufix are heat sealed together, achieving an airtight closure.

Easy Open Ends | Metal Pull-Ring Lids | EZO LIDS / EOE LIDS
Our easy open ends are made of tinplate and are available for packing foods such as tuna fish, tomato paste, fruits, vegetables, juices, curry, meat, mushrooms, nuts, milk powder, coffee, vegetable oils, motor oils and almost all other types of food and non food products. These easy open lids are made as ‘full aperture openings’ only. Our ends are suitable for pasteurization, sterilization and retorting.
Outside of the EOE can be gold lacquered or clear lacquered. Our EZO lids are printed with opening instructions. Many of our customers purchase easy open ends with their logo printed on outside of these Can Ends, this requires a certain order quantity. Such printed Can ends are commonly used to increase brand awareness and for running promotion campaigns.
Inside of the Easy Open Covers are usually lacquered. The type of internal lacquer can be epoxy phenolic, organosol or aluminized as per customer request and end application. The color of internal lacquer can be Gold or Clear. All the lacquers used in our lids are approved by relevant authorities.
Plain End Lids | Open Top Cans with Lids | Food Can Lid
With a lacquer coating on all plain ends, this tin can lid is ideal for any edible or non-edible product. Save on cost with using these standard lids, as opposed to peel-off and pull-ring lids. The buyers and recipients of your tin cans will require a can-opener to open tins which are sealed with this type of closure.
Available with or without ribbing (lines or smooth), keep it simple by having your cans sealed with these lids which are made of the same material as the tin can itself. Suitable to be branded and printed with your custom design, these lids are great for promotional and marketing use.
Paint Can Lids | Triple Tite Metal Lids | TT Lids / RL Lids
The Triple Tite closure is very suitable for flat plate lids. Tins with this type of closure are sometimes harder to re-close, because residue can be left in the rim after the paint is poured out. The TT closure is particularly important for mixed lacquers, because the stirrer lid can be clicked into place under the edge. In general the TT closure is experienced by its users that the lid is more easy to re(open) than a RL closure.
The performance/tightness of the Tripe Tite closure is similar to the RL closure. The TT closure is less closed than a RL closure. For good air-tightness, we advice to turn the tin cans upside down after filling, that the air-tightness off the lid/ring connection will be optimal.
- The TT closure has a flat lid.
- The TT lid falls in the rim of the tin.
- The TT closure is used mainly on the professional market.
