Multiple Friction—plug-style metal cap fits into a “well” on the seamed on ring. The plug snaps into the ring and two surfaces (the outside and inside edge) come into contact with the ring, creating two sealing surfaces on the plug/ring combination. Most paint cans are constructed in this manner.

Full Friction—plug-style metal cap fits against the interior surface at the top of the can without the use of a ring. Plug design provides an extra snug fit to prevent leakage. Commonly used for medical and military applications, hazardous materials, and metals. Standard diameters: 404, 502, 603, 610, 707

Single Friction—plug-style metal cap fits snugly into a seamed on ring. The outside edge of the plug presses against the interior edge of the ring, creating one sealing surface. Usually used in conjunction with an aluminum membrane. Single friction cans and plugs are available by special order; minimum quantities apply. Call factory for details.

Custom heights available by special order! Heights of lock-seam and welded cans may be adjusted and are available by special order. Longer lead times may apply.

Interior Seal Tins

A great container that consumers call "fresh!" Similar to a full friction tin except a pliable interior ring fits to the interior allowing for a straight-sided slender profile can. The interior ring is made of low density polyethylene. Standard diameters available include 1-15/16", 2-11/16", 3", 3-3/4", 4-1/4", 5-1/8" and 6-1/8"; heights can be adjusted to suit your needs. 1-15/16" diameter is available with either plastic ring or metal interior seal.
