Applications of Paper Cans
Paper cans are often used to design mailing tubes for companies, as telescoping packages, and for a range of other uses. Paper cans are rarely used for food transport or storage because they are not designed to store or preserve food in any way. Even though the paper is recycled/recyclable, paper cans are not durable enough to carry food items. To purchase the right paper can, one has to be sure of the exact purpose for which it will be used. Customers would have to provide their own designs to the manufacturer if the paper cans are to be used for advertising. Lastly, paper cans are not suitable for industrial use or large scale use, as they are not durable enough.
Paper Can Design and Customization
Paper can designs are eco-friendly and are 100 % recyclable. Some companies actually utilize recycled paper to make these paper cans. Paper cans are available in either two-piece or three-piece forms. The two piece is the design where a shorter length of the tube (usually about the same thickness) is made a little wider and serves as the cap of the tube. This can be used where the tube is open ended and has only one side being covered by another material. The three-piece design is made using the general idea behind the two-piece, except that there is another piece of material, usually metal or plastic, sealing it off.
Paper cans have some distinctive properties. They are strong, reliable, and can be manufactured to a wide range of diameters, thicknesses, and sizes, depending on the purpose for which they are being created and the needs of the customer. Paper cans can also come in a variety of colors and can be sealed with either metal, plastic, wood, or paper. Like all other forms of cardboard tubes, it is possible for paper cans to be labeled on the inside or outside for advertising or identification purposes, per the customer’s request. Paper cans come in different styles, including paper cuffs, metal or plastic end, and full telescopic containers (open on both ends).
