Full Answer

Manufacturers generally make plunger cans with materials like galvanized steel, which is resistant to dents, rust and certain chemicals. A dasher plate mounted on a spring pushes down to dispense small amounts of the stored liquid, with excess liquid flowing back into the container. It also includes a flame barrier. Brass pump assemblies are common on plunger cans, as are molded protectors along the top rims of the cans.
