Paint Cans

We stock a large selection of tin or metal cans.  For this article, we will divide them into three groups.

  • Paint Cans – Lined and Unlined
  • Slipcover Tins
  • F Cans


As always, the end user is responsible for ensuring his/her product is compatible with the cans. Samples can be sent for testing at your request.

Paint Cans

We stock paint cans in sizes from 1/4 pint to 5 quart (Imperial Gallon) sizes.  We provide the option of buying these cans unlined or lined.  The lining in our grey lined cans is pigmented epoxy phenolic which would be good for latex paints.  The lining in our gold cans is a non pigmented epoxy phenolic which would be good with mild chemicals.  We carry cans with bails (handles) and cans with no handles.  In many cases, lids are sold separately.
