Klear Can multi-layer plastic cans provide an attractive alternative to metal cans, for fruits, vegetables, soups, meats and other products, by providing brand owners with clear, see-through PP in a container that features extended shelf life of up to five years.
Suitable for retort up to 130°C, these clear plastic cans have been tested and approved for retortability and the integrity of the double seam, which was designed to allow the plastic can’s flange to accept traditional (easy open and non-easy open) metal can ends.
Klear Can provides numerous advantages over metal cans, most notably the ability to show the quality of the food products to the consumer at the point of sale. Klear Can is also designed so existing metal can-filling facilities can easily shift to the use of the plastic cans with no need for investing in new downstream equipment.
The first Klear Can introduction is the commonly used 41cl size, with a 75mm end (also common). The total can height is 110mm.
