Tin containers are considered to be among the most popular

packaging materials in the world. These small tin cans are easy and

cheap to produce and can be crafted into any color, shape, and

design. Although its name might suggest differently, these tins are,

in fact, not made from tin. So, what are tin cans made of?

Although empty tins are generally called "[url=http://www.dw-

packing.com/tin-cans/]Tin Cans[/url]", there are almost no

modern tins that are produced solely from tin. The main reason why

people call these empty cans "Tins" can be dated back to

the late 20th century. Back then, cans were created out of tin-plated

steel in order to combine the strength and affordability of steel

with the corrosion resistance of tin.

Nowadays, empty tin cans are, generally speaking, crafted out of any

thin metal. This can range from aluminum to steel or iron. Although

not always, these small tin cans often come with a tin-plating. Ever

since the 1960s, aluminum has by far become the number one choice for

producing small tin cans. The reason behind this lies in the fact

that it is cheaper and easier to form. Thanks to this, the

manufacturing process has become less costly and less time-consuming

compared to before. Therefore they can be made into many shapes like

[url=http://www.dw-packing.com/tin-cans/round-tin-cans/]Round Tin

Cans[/url], [url=http://www.dw-packing.com/tin-cans/square-tin-

cans/]Square Tin Cans[/url] and so on. Aluminum is known to offer the

same resistance to corrosion which makes it a perfect replacement.

The reason why empty cans are not crafted entirely out of tin lies in

the fact that tin is, in fact, quite a rare material. Although it is

considered to be a "common metal" instead of a

"precious metal" like gold or platinum, it is still less

available than you may think. In fact, tin may as well be one of the

least available "common" metals out there. It is true that

in the world there are only a limited number of mines that produce

tin. Scientists are even going as far as predicting that, in the

future, there will be a high chance that we are running out of tin

completely.

Due to the above-stated reasons, it would be extremely expensive and

difficult to create anything out of pure tin. This is especially the

case for everyday objects such as packaging materials. As of today

(August 2017), the price of tin amounts to US$20.61 per kilogram

whereas aluminum only costs US$2.1 per kilogram. (LME, 2017) As you

can imagine, this major price difference has led to the fact that

manufacturers rather produce their tins out of different metals. Most

empty cans that are nowadays produced are either made out of aluminum

or another cheap alloy.

As for the bucket, of course we are well aware there are many choices

when it comes to choosing buckets and containers like

[url=http://www.dw-packing.com/plastic-bucket/]Plastic Bucket [/url]

and [url=http://www.dw-packing.com/storage-steel-bucket/]Storage

Steel Bucket[/url]. In terms of material, for instance, for many,

many years the only option was some form of metal. Having said that,

there was a time when buckets were made of wood, or hemp. Plastic

really was the material of the 20th Century. And as the 21st Century

beds in, it remains the perfect material for uses from the everyday

to the industrial and commercial. We have thought through all options

very carefully, and plastic remains the best solution for our buckets

and containers.

First off, plastic is an incredibly strong, durable material. As well

as containing an essential flexibility, it is extremely resilient,

which is why it doesn't corrode, and can take so long to break

down after use. Plastic can stand up to most climate circumstances

and is much more resistant to the weather than many metal buckets,

for instance. Plastic is likely to be resistant to the sun. The

material can be adapted to combat extreme levels of UV light but even

in its regular form it can stand up to a great deal of harsh

treatment. And it doesn't need any [url=http://Iron]Iron Bucket

Accessories and Materials[/url].

This essential adaptability of plastic quality means that higher

density, hard-wearing plastic can be further resistant against dents,

damage and impact. The same is true for chemicals. You will often

find plastic buckets and containers used in industries such as

catering, agricultural, construction and health - whether for mixing,

or storing, chemicals - because the material is impervious to so many

different chemicals.

Finally, of course, are issues of the environment and economy.

Plastic can be a very reasonable material, price-wise, which gives

you the option to choose the right container – or series of

containers – to suit your needs and as the material is so cost-

effective, we are able to pass on these savings to our own customers.

As regards the environment, plastic is actually much lighter than

metal, for instance, which can lead to much better fuel economy, when

containers are used in transportation.

So, for all these reasons, plastic has been the material for both the

20th Century, the 21st Century…
