Dramatically textured beverage can offers gripping, branding benefits

Dramatically textured beverage can offers gripping, branding benefits

The patent-pending XanCan is an aluminum beverage can made with textured sidewalls using customizable patterns to create a one-of-a-kind impact. The revolutionary technique enables a better grip and improved handling and is an innovative way to distinguish brand recognition, marketability and gain a competitive advantage, all while improving consumer comfort.

For the majority of beverages that are sold chilled or chilled before use, the pattern provides a grippable surface that helps alleviate problems with a can made slippery due to surface condensation.

The XanCan is suitable for all beverage categories from beer and soft drinks, to iced teas and energy drinks. Regardless of the pattern applied, the can remains fully recyclable.
