This can normally be achieved in a single tool pack although more than one action of the press may be involved. After application of the end-lining compound gasket material, the sheet is fed into a multi-stage conversion press that forms the rivet, makes the score and attaches the tab (for simplicity the tab manufacturing process is not included in this description). The formation of the rivet is itself a multi-stage drawing operation to create initially a shallow bubble on the external surface of the end, which is then progressively converted into a more or less straight-sided protrusion 3-6 mm in diameter.

Screw caps and non-vacuum closures.

The attachment to the container is via a thread or a lug, with the exception of crown corks which may be either threaded or crimped onto glass bottles.

The emphasis on flexibility or chemical resistance can be adjusted by the ratio of epoxy and phenolic content, the former giving flexibility and the latter chemical resistance. Epoxy-phenolic lacquers, normally gold in appearance, are used for a wide range of acidic and non-acid foods as well as non-food products. They are sometimes used in a pigmented form (aluminium powder or zinc carbonate) to mask or absorb sulphide staining. They are also the base lacquer type for meat release lacquers, in conjunction with waxes and aluminium pigmentation.
