1. What Are Window Tins?
A window tin separates itself from other tin containers in the way that it comes with a beautiful see-through top. These lids are commonly made out of durable plastic. The most expensive metal tins, however, can also be equipped with glass lids. All the clear top tins available at uCan-Packaging come with plastic windows. Caps that feature glass instead of plastic are available upon request. Just like all other types of small metal containers, these tins come in all shapes and with different volumes. They can furthermore be fully customized upon request, thus providing you with a great and unique wrapping for your goods.
Because window tins come with a see-through top, these tin cans are great for displaying goods. This particular type of metal tins is often found in the food or cosmetics industries where they are filled up with colorful treats, herbs, or makeup. Additionally, they are commonly used for holding scented wax lights and bathing salts. After their content has been consumed, these tins are often kept and reused by people in order to serve other storage needs. To some people, collecting these beautiful tins with lids has even become a full-blown hobby.
2. What Are Window Tin Containers Used For?
Tin containers that come with a transparent top can, just like other metal tins, be used for a wide range of storage purposes. Depending on the volume of the tin can, they are used to hold for example herbs, candy, makeup, and wax lights. As these tins have been equipped with a see-through cap, they are not that often used for keeping liquids. Instead, they are used to hold tiny objects, dried food, or solid cosmetics such as wax. Unlike our other tin cans, these tins also do not come with an EPE liner. This makes them less suitable for holding fresh products. Below, we’ll briefly take you through the main storage purposes of these clear top tins.
2.1 Spice Containers & Tea Tins
These small metal tins can commonly be found in people’s kitchens where they are being used as spice containers. Dried herbs come in many different colors which makes them great for showing off. This is why manufacturers and herb sellers often choose to store their products in tin cans with a transparent top. The benefit of these window tins is that, after usage, you can simply fill them up again for re-usage. Besides being used by shops, end-users also can simply buy their own empty cans and fill them up with their favorite seasoning. Displaying your colorful spices will truly increase the atmosphere of your kitchen at home. Additionally, they can also be used as tea tins or to store other dried foods such as coffee.
2.2 Candy Tins
Candy tins feature an attractive design, are colorful and, you guessed it, often come with a transparent cap. Just like herbs, candies come in a wide range of different colors. These bright colors make them great for showing off as they are sure to grab a person’s attention. Being able to see which mouthwatering sweets are stored inside a tin container makes it difficult to pass along without feeling the urge to buy some candy. Window tins are used in particular to store hard candies such as jelly beans. Naturally, these small metal tins can also be used to hold any other sort of treats ranging from cookies to chocolates.
2.3 Makeup Containers
Especially the smaller model metal tins that feature a 5ml or 10ml content are often used as makeup containers. These smaller sized tins are generally speaking filled up with wax, lotions, or crèmes. As far as window tins are concerned, these are commonly used to hold colorful goods such as lip gloss. Tin cans with a volume below 20ml have proven themselves to be popular lip gloss containers. With their see-through lids, these lip balm tins offer a great way to display colorful red or pink gloss to young girls and teenagers.
2.4 Candle Tins
Candles and wax lights can nowadays often be found inside a tin container. These so-called candle tins are directly filled up with wax, turning them into a stylish candle that can be closed off while not in use. Candle tins are most commonly used to store scented wax lights. Not only does the lid make it easy to store your wax lights away when not in use, it also conceals the smell at times you are not using them. Although all types of metal tins can be used to hold candles, the most commonly used model is the window tin. The reason behind this seems logical as the see-through top allows you to enjoy the beautiful colors of your candle even when it’s not in use. Candle tins can nowadays be found in nearly any cozy household as they will create an atmosphere of warmth even when the wax light is not lit.
3. What Are These Small Metal Containers Made Off?
Although tin containers were originally made from tin, modern metal tins are often produced using a different material. In today’s world, metal tins are mostly made out of lightweight aluminium. Traditional empty cans with tin plating are still available; however, they are less popular due to the fact that they are more expensive and heavier in weight. The clear top tins found at uCan-Packaging are crafted out of high-end aluminium and come with plastic windows inside their lid. All our aluminum tins feature a seamless design, are corrosion resistant, and are 100% food-safe and BPA free. Traditional tin cans that are made out of tin plated steel and come with real glass lids are available upon request.
