Meeting the evolving needs of container manufacturers and end-users is a priority for Eurofoil. The company's investment in research and development is aimed at continuously optimising the performance of its container films. An excellent example of this is the ongoing work on advanced alloys that allow a reduction in foil thickness without compromising key mechanical properties.
Comprehensive Range of Applications
Aluminium foil containers offer some of the most versatile packaging solutions available today. They combine the features needed to process, store and deliver perfectly preserved and readily accessible food products to the consumer. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are used in many industries:
  • Preserved pet food
  • Preserved human food
  • Chilled food
  • Frozen food
  • Bakery
  • Catering
  • Take-away

Unique & Versatile Properties
Aluminium containers owe many of their recognised advantages to the properties of the material itself:

  • Aluminium provides a complete barrier, protecting sensitive and valuable foods from deterioration.
  • It has unique mechanical properties as it is highly malleable and can also be 'dead folded', which is useful for deep drawing and moulding containers.
  • Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat and at the same time is heat-resistant, allowing quick and controlled heating of the container’s food content.
  • The decorative potential of aluminium foil lends itself to strong shelf appeal and eye-catching pack design: the material is both bright and reflective and can be coloured or printed.
  • Aluminium foil helps to achieve source reduction and sustainability goals through the development of lightweight and downgauged packaging. Aluminium containers can be recycled again and again without loss of quality.

The use of aluminium containers in microwave ovens is perfectly viable. Conclusive evidence that aluminium foil containers can be used safely in microwave ovens was established in a study by the Fraunhofer Institute, Germany. More details:
