Aluminium is a very versatile material and can be used in a variety of markets. Approximately 75% of European aluminium foil is used for packaging: rigid, semi-rigid and flexible. In particular, flexible packages are used in industrial applications to distribute a vast array of products.
Flexible packaging applications
Aluminium packaging has been one of the fastest growing packaging sectors over the past 10 years thanks to different factors: aluminium is light-weight, easy to open and carry; it is customizable and has a positive sustainability profile. In addition, flexible packaging is mostly used in food and pharmaceutical sectors thanks to aluminium’s properties. It protects food and medicines from light, humidity and contaminants; it has an excellent corrosion resistance and extends the shelf-life of the product.
