The aim of this European standard is to define the range of the capacities of the cans defined by their nominal gross-lidded capacities, their metal thickness not exceeding 0.49 mm. It is based upon ISO 10653:1993. Recommended diameters related to this range of capacities are shown in the Annex A (informative) to this standard. The diameters quoted are as defined in EN 20090/1. Light gauge open-top metal containers for liquid products with added gas defined by their nominal filling volumes are the subject of another European standard.
