Aluminium End User - Packaging
Intelligent packaging is coming of age. Today it is more about functionality and sustainability than just aesthetics. Aluminium by virtue of its low density, malleability, unique barrier function, and recyclability, contributes functionally to the fabrication of packaging units that are not only safe for storing perishables but are also lightweight and energy-saving.
Aluminium packaging provides optimal protection to the packaged products. It does not react with anything packed inside and wards off environmental contaminants thereby preserving goodness of the products for a long time. So, it can be used conveniently either as a mono-material or as part of a composite packaging.
Aluminium beverage cans and aerosol cans are extremely lightweight. This helps reduce the risk of handling during transport.
It is important for any good packaging medium to communicate effectively with the consumers at the point of sale. The intrinsic look of aluminium renders a premium appeal to the packaging unit and helps create that first impression on buyers quite effortlessly.
Most importantly, aluminium can be recycled endlessly- a property that makes aluminium the packaging material of choice for the world that is increasingly leaning towards sustainable living.
