"What exactly is a composite can?", you might be wondering. Well, we will answer that question first before we explain why you might need them. A composite can is a can that is made using composite materials like cardboard, plastics and paper. These are usually recycled products, which is why composite cans are usually considered paper canister to be an eco-friendly packaging solution.
The composite is tightly spun in a spiral or linear form to create a rigid, hollow cylinder. Products can be placed inside this can and it can be sealed using plastic of metal end caps for added security. The composite materials are pulled through a set of tools during manufacturing to create the desired shape.
Composite cans are always in a cylindrical shape, but there are many possibilities in terms of the height and diameter that can be made.Now that you understand what composite cans are, why does your business need them? Besides the fact that they're affordable and eco-friendly, they make great display packaging on store shelves.
