Aluminium foil provides a complete barrier to light, oxygen, moisture and bacteria, making it ideal for packaging. Aluminium packaging is extremely versatile and can be used in a wide range of different applications for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Container foil is divided into three major categories: household foil, semi-rigid containers and flexible packaging. For decades, the use of foil has grown steadily in each of these categories and the demand for Gränges’ materials is increasing, especially in North America. Semi-rigid containers are among the most flexible of all types of packaging and are widely used for pre-packaged foods, easily withstanding great differences in temperature from freezing to heating. In addition, a key benefit is that aluminium packaging materials can be recycled and reused an infinite number of times.
