Hi-Pet is a safe, environmentally friendly material used for beverage cans.

Hi-Pet is a film-laminated steel sheet originally developed by us. One of the application of this product is the TULC can. Making cans from this material means that painting and cleaning processes can be eliminated, resulting in environmentally friendly cans with significantly reduced CO2 emissions and zero wastewater. Application for food cans and 18-liter cans are also expected.

“TULC can” stands for Toyo ULtimate Can. Developed by Toyo Seikan Co., Ltd.
