A Composite Can is a cylindrical container that usually has a body made of several layers of paper and the bases or ends made of metal or plastic. A Composite Can is also sometimes called a Combi container, and can often serve a similar purpose as a poster tube. Composite cans are composed of a body, a bottom closure, and a top closure.
There are four main structures in the body of a Composite Can: the aluminum inner web, multipole intermediate webs, and the label web, and the membrane. The membrane and tear off tabs are made of metals (usually aluminum). The membrane is manufactured in a blanking and deep drawing device.
