Metal Tins

October 2019

SKS carries a variety of metal tins that could be used to house a wide range of products, including candy, candles, shampoo bars, tea, and more.

Benefits of Tin-Plated Steel

Our tin containers are composed of tin-plated steel, which offers many economic benefits, as well as properties for maintaining product shelf life, including:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Provides barriers against water, air, and light
  • 100% recyclable
  • Inexpensive and easily manufactured

Deep Metal Tins

Our deep silver and gold tins are versatile for use with many products. Choose from a range of sizes between 1 oz to 8 oz. Each of these candy tins comes with fitted slipcovers for convenient storage.Deep round tin containers and square tins with clear window covers are also available. The clear window tin lids are fitted and allow customers to view the product inside. They are great for vibrant cosmetic packaging, spices, or candies.Footed candle tins are very similar to our deep metal tins, but feature three feet on the base. These feet lift the silver tins 1 mm to allow space for air flow between the container and the surface it sits on, which helps to keep the tin cool when used to package candles.

Flat Metal Tins

Round flat metal tins are available in two styles: with rolled edge tin covers or with twist top lids. The slipcover flat tins come in seven sizes ranging from 1/4 oz to 8 oz, while the twist top spice tins come in 1/2 oz, 1 oz, and 2 oz sizes. This tin packaging could be great for housing spices, beauty products, or for storage.Slide top metal tins are rectangular and come in two sizes: 48 x 23 x 9 mm or 79 x 35 x 10 mm. Similarly, our hinge top metal tins are rectangular and are available in two sizes: 61 x 48 x 15 mm or 98 x 63 x 21 mm. The attached hinge tops prevent lost or mismatched container covers. These travel size containers are great for on-the-go and could be used to package lip balm or mints.

Packaging Tip

Polystyrene Containers

SKS carries a variety of polystyrene plastic bottles and jars. Polystyrene, also referred to as styrene or PS plastic, is often used as an alternative to glass due to its high clarity. Polystyrene is a rigid, non-toxic, lightweight thermoplastic that is most commonly used for food packaging and lab supplies.
