Italcoat developed a specific coated aluminium to supply manufacturers of aluminium coffee capsules to be sealed with aluminium lids.
Aluminum is chemically degreased and pre-treated to ensure perfect surface adhesion of the lacquer. The external coating is BPA N.I.A. and the internal one is PVC FREE: both are suitable for the coffee brewing process.
Aluminium coffee capsules: an all-in-one solution
Italcoat is a part of Laminazione Sottile Group, which works in an integrated production chain and manufactures rolled aluminium products, in different alloys, dimensions and superficial treatments – including lacquering and printing. That’s why our Group has the expertise to provide both the coated aluminium foil for coffee capsules bodies, customizable in any colour upon request, and even the foil to produce heat-sealing lids.
This possibility is very important for coffee caps manufacturers since one of the main advantages of a completely mono-material packaging consists in its 100% recycling capacity, which favours a fully circular economy: this means an easier recycling process with lower environmental impact.
Why coated aluminium?
Aluminium can be defined the circular material par excellence since it’s infinitely and 100% recyclable. Aluminium waste, both post-industrial and post-consumer, through the recycling and melting process becomes new raw material, without losing any properties and providing relevant environmental benefits.
Moreover, thanks to its features, aluminium works as a barrier against light, moisture and oxygen and prevents any contamination or aroma loss, and stands the high temperature of the coffee brewing process.
