Thinner & lighter steels
INCREASINGLY, LIGHTER STEEL PACKAGING SOLUTIONS REQUIRE
LESS RAW MATERIAL AND LOWER ENERGY CONSUMPTION TO PRODUCE.
Over the years, the average weight of steel in its various packaging applications has been vastly reduced.
Greater productivity, more cans are made with the same quantity of steel.
Increased industry resource efficiency.
Lighter and more efficient throughout the supply chain.
A 3-PIECE FOOD CAN IS 29% THINNER than 30 years ago.
New generation steel food cans weigh as little as 41g, that’s 46% lighter than 30 years ago.
This decrease in mass is enabled by new steelmaking and can-making technologies and by the development of advanced steels that can offer the strength and formability required to make the packaging lightweight.
