Reimagining traditional ends, Crown's SuperEnd® beverage ends feature a unique countersink wall angle and reinforcing bead, significantly reducing material use and unnecessary waste without compromising on performance.

The ends have also saved close to 1.4 million metric tons of greenhouse has emissions—the equivalent of nearly 300,000 passenger vehicles driven for one year or more than 1.5 billion pounds of coal burned—and will continue to yield higher savings following more recent lightweighting of the end.
