The new Canpeel® can lids are metallic, with transparent membrane and easy opening, and have arrived in the Portuguese market, launched by ALBIPACK. “They are a product of great innovation in the market”, because they allow “to see the contents of canned food before opening the packaging”, the company said, arguing that this is “an excellent way to present the products in store, so that the clients can prove it’s the quality”. One of the biggest advantages of transparent lids is that they can be easily opened without the use of special tools.
They are available in four different sizes – 73 mm, 83 mm and 99 mm and as 1/4 Club Can. They are mostly used in fish processing plants and in canning companies, including canned fruit.
The lids are produced in Switzerland using special tools, guaranteeing the same durability features as traditional tin cans and they are composed of a metal ring where a plastic membrane composed of four layers with a total thickness of 100 my is applied.
According to ALBIPACK, it can be a custom-made product, using its internal design options. “Canpeel-R lids can be used on any can lid crimping machine. It may be necessary to make a small investment in one or more press tools for crimping machines”, he explains. The company also guarantees that “cans with transparent lids guarantee a Shelf-Life between 2-4 years, not showing any color change in the canned product”.
