FORMABILITY AND GAUGE CONTROL, SURFACE AND SUSTAINABILITY.
U. S. Steel has long led the market in product quality, portfolio breadth and engineering excellence in tin products for packaging applications. Our tin offers drawability, gauge control, shape and surface quality that’s second to none.
And steel is gaining new appreciation as a sustainable material. Unlike aluminum, steel is endlessly recyclable, with no degradation in material quality with each time it’s recycled. And unlike plastic, if steel does reach landfills or oceans, it dissolves, returning harmlessly to the earth.
