Canned paints are paints and coatings that come in steel can packaging, typically with an internal tin coating for corrosion resistance. These cans consist of a cylindrical can, a lid, and paint handles for carrying. Paint cans are strong enough to withstand stress during transportation and in warehouse stacking. Furthermore, these paint cans come in common sizes needed in general home painting chores and their practical volumetric weights are not strenuous for workers to carry.
