Weighs less by volume than most other metals (less expensive to ship), aluminum offers a combination of high strength and corrosion resistance. Unsurpassed in shaping and decorating possibilities. Comes in a variety of alloys. For acidic foods, like tomatoes, use tin instead.
Perfect when your product needs the ability to be moderately bent or shaped in the manufacturing process. Safe for foodstuffs and beverages. Tin coating (tinplate) makes a beautiful metallic luster and offers excellent corrosion resistance. Less expensive, easier to solder to than stainless steel.
