1.1 In the interest of uniformity and quality, the aerosol industry has developed dimensional guidelines which are suggested for U.S. three-piece steel and tin-plate aerosol cans of straight-wall and necked-in design. Domestic can makers uniformly agreed to comply with these guidelines and were instrumental in their development. A series of standard methods and gages were also developed to uniformly determine specific dimensions. The tolerances established for these dimensions allow for can manufacturing and filling process variations.

1.2 It is the purpose of this guide to provide a listing of currently manufactured aerosol can sizes as well as industry voluntary dimensional guidelines.

1.3  Table 1 and Table 2 present the sales code diameter and height of straight-wall and necked-in three-piece aerosol cans. The units in parentheses are in SI format, an alternate reference using dimensions suggested by the Metric Working Group of the Can Makers Institute. They are based on International Organization for Standardization (ISO) inside diameters to the nearest whole millimetre. Can heights are based on heights over the double seam (CSMA Dimension D) converted to the nearest whole millimetre.

1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
