Metal packaging plays an important role in the process of food preservation. The common term used to describe this process is called canning. Canned food has become an important part of the human diet in developed countries during the past century and is widely spreading in developing countries as well. It is of great value in those parts of the world where no or limited refrigeration exists for storing food. These factors have given rise to the Food Tins and Drink Cans industry to flourish more in developing and developed countries. Metal packaging has a dual function as a protection against any external interference on the foodstuff during heat treatment and storage and as an information pack. The basic necessity for such packages is air- tightness of the container. The food which is sterilized by the heat process is focused to be protected completely against any infection with microorganisms or any influence from the outside. Many of these contain a coating on the metal surface between the foodstuff and the metal.
Food cans and tins are packed under ambient pressure like beer and carbonated beverage. Soft drinks typically do not undergo any further treatment. Many food types are filled hot and are cooked in the can under a wide range of conditions. The sterilizing processes are controlled to assure bacterial safety and this helps in preservation of food for a longer period of time. Many metal packaging (typically cans, containers, caps and closures) are normally coated on either or both the sides. Many soft drinks are extremely acidic and are prone to corrosion of the can which is potentially a serious problem.
Since all carbonated beverages are packed under pressure, it is of prime concern that internal coatings provide complete protection to the can, without flaws. As food is often heat processed in the can, the coatings of both internal and external parts must withstand the conditions. Also, the internal coatings must be resistant to the contents of the can during processing and any by-products formed in the food during the heat processing.
Many manufacturers are concentrating towards new product application advances in Food Tins and Drink Cans. Moreover, the many advantageous properties of Food Tins and Drink Cans are being exploited for storing food for a longer period of time, storage without refrigeration, for availing seasonal foods throughout the year and more.
