Amcor Flexibles Canseal Pro
Canseal Pro, a direct-seal aluminium membrane for can ends, developed and manufactured by Amcor Flexibles, is currently being used to pack dry products that do not need heat processing after filling, as well as other products such as condensed milk, which benefit from the barrier properties offered by aluminium foil.
The coextruded sealing structure of Canseal Pro, made specifically for a newly developed direct sealing technology, offers excellent seal integrity, easy peelability and highly efficient processability. The membrane reduces total packaging material and cost, since it is directly sealed onto a can. So no additional metal ring is needed. One thousand conventional steel EOE lids, for a typical 73mm diameter can, weigh around eight times more than the equivalent Canseal Pro lids, says Amcor.
