Beverage Cans

.
For your information

Ninety-five percent of all soft drink cans are made of aluminium. While almost all food cans are made of steel, aluminium's unique properties make it ideal for holding carbonated beverages. The typical aluminium can weighs less than half an ounce, yet its thin walls withstand more than 90 pounds of pressure per square inch exerted by the carbon dioxide in beer and soft drinks. Aluminium's shiny finish also makes it an attractive background for decorative printing, important for a product that must grab the attention of consumers in a competitive market.
Aluminum was first identified as an element in 1782, and the metal enjoyed great prestige in France.Aluminum was not used for beverage cans until after World War II. During the war the U.S government shipped large quantities of beer in steel cans to its servicemen overseas. After the war most beer was again sold in bottles, but the returning soldiers retained a nostalgic liking for cans. Manufacturers continued to sell some beer in steel cans, even though bottles were cheaper to produce.

The modern aluminium beverage can is not only lighter it also does not rust, it chills quickly, its glossy surface is easily imprintable and eye-catching ,it prolongs shelf life and it is easy to recycle.
