About products and suppliers

A tin box is a type of packaging made of steel with a very thin tin coating. Tin box packing is widely used in a variety of industries around the world due to its robustness and effectiveness. They are also one of the common metal storage boxes.

The advantage of tin box

One of the great advantages of tin boxes is that the tin plates allow box designers to come up with packaging of any size and shape. Aside from common square, rectangle, or cylindrical boxes, there are small tin boxes coming in unique designs such as car shapes, candy shapes, and snowman shapes. These boxes are a great way to attack people's attention and make the products different from others. In addition, most metal storage containers for food made of tin are less likely to rust because tin is a metallic element that is stable and has less chemical reaction with foods. Tin food containers are also highly resistant to the corrosive properties of acidic foods, like tomatoes. Moreover, a tin box with lids features good sealing, and it can prevent moisture, protecting the products inside from the elements. And they are more durable than boxes made of other metals, such as aluminum.

The application of tin box

Originally and even to this day, the main purpose of tin metal storage boxes with lids is to preserve food. For example, tin cans are popularly used in food industries because they are able to hold food for a long period of time without corroding. Tin cookie boxes are often used for packaging biscuits, as well as breath mints, throat lozenges, instant coffee, and holiday treats. Such tin boxes can sometimes be reused to store items or to create kits, such as survival kits. The metal box with hinged lids is a great way to pack beverages and oil. The lid is hinged to the body of the container, and it is held in place when closed by friction. Gifting tins, tin bread boxes, and tin pencil boxes are also available in the market. Also, it is possible to get customized tins.
