What can I do with aluminium foil?
Aluminium foil is a thin and flexible foil commonly used in different industries such as semi-rigid, rigid, flexible packaging and others. Aluminum foil is can be formed and manipulated into a variety of shapes after being cut from a much longer sheet commonly wound into a coil.
Main sectors of use of aluminum foil
Aluminium foil is mainly used in the food and pharmaceutical sectors to make containers and blister packs. In the food supply chain, packaging has become a critical component as the demand for fresh and safe food is on the rise as a result of growing health awareness among consumers. In addition, aluminium has several benefits because it’s:
– non-toxic and hygienic, which helps to maintain the aroma of foods as they are;
– safe in contact with food protecting it from light, water, ultraviolet radiation, steam, microorganisms and oxygen.
– light compared to other packaging materials; therefore it reduces the energy required during transportation
In the pharmaceutical sector, on the other hand, high-quality medicines increasingly require advanced and safe packaging that protects the medicine from oxygen, humidity and environmental contaminants. Hence, aluminium foil is the ideal packaging product in the pharma industry as aluminium has intrinsic barrier properties that protect the medicine or pills maintaining their characteristics unaltered.
