An aluminium can, or can, is a container for packaging made primarily of aluminium (BrE aluminium). It is commonly used for foods and beverages but also for products such as oil, chemicals, and other liquids. The common 12-ounce-size can weighs 15 grams when empty.


Use of aluminium in cans began in 1957. aluminium is less costly than tin-plated steel but offers the same resistance to corrosion in addition to greater malleability, resulting in ease of manufacture; this gave rise to the two-piece can, where all but the top of the can is simply stamped out of a single piece of aluminium, rather than laboriously constructed from two pieces of steel. A label is either printed directly on the side of the can or will be glued to the outside of the curved surface, indicating its contents. Most aluminium cans are made of two pieces. The bottom and body are "drawn" or "drawn and ironed" from a flat plate or shallow cup. After filling, the can "end" is sealed onto the top of the can. The advantages of aluminium over steel (tinplate) cans include;

Features
  • light weight
  • competitive cost
  • usage of easy-open aluminium ends: no need for a can opener
  • clean appearance
  • aluminium does not rust


Recycling

Aluminium cans are often made with recycled aluminium; approximately 68% of a standard Australian can is recycled aluminium. Cans are the most recycled beverage container, at a rate of 69% worldwide.

Facts

Australians consumed over 3 billion aluminium cans in 2005. Of these, 51% were soft drink cans and 31% were beer cans.


Aluminium is the most common metallic element on earth, making up about 8% of the earth's crust, concentrated in the outer 16 km. Only oxygen and silicon are more abundant. It is the most widely used non-ferrous metal today. Aluminium never occurs in its metallic form in nature.
