Superior Sustainability with SuperEnd® Beverage Ends
When Crown introduced the revolutionary SuperEnd® beverage end technology, it was the first major breakthrough in beverage end design in nearly 20 years. The end reduces metal use by 10% and its unique geometry delivers several key benefits to fillers.
The 202-diameter SuperEnd® beverage ends, for example, provide increased panel strength. These ends are 8-10 psi more buckle resistant than standard 202 ends, without any reduction in integrity during pasteurization, shipping, and handling.
SuperEnd® beverage ends also feature a distinctive message or "billboard" area. Marketers can print brand logos, special messages and co-branding promotions, instant win campaigns or communicate with consumers about issues such as recycling.
To date, more than 450 billion SuperEnd® beverage ends have been produced by Crown and its licensees, saving over 117,000 metric tons of aluminum, 2,000 metric tons of coatings, 900,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases, and 2.35 million barrels of oil.
