Permanently Available Material Ė in just a few seconds
In any gathering of can makers, I can guarantee that itíll only be a few minutes before someone mentions Permanently Available Material.  Itís one of metal packagingís great strengths and is reflected in a British Standard which recognises this and gives the definition even greater status.
