  • Compatible With Existing Canning Operations

    We’ve made it easy to convert and ramp up Klear Can production.

    Klear Can uses the same filling, seaming and retorting machinery as metal cans, so minimal downstream investment is required. Also, manufacturers have the ability to mold cans at the filling site to save time and money.

    Using a standard metal can end and the industry standard double-seam process, the Klear Can is designed to withstand standard retort pressures and temperatures of up to 130 degrees Celsius.

    Though the Klear Can is uniquely lightweight, it’s stackable and dent-resistant. Also, this innovation is cost competitive to metal cans and fully recyclable.
