From Tin paper wrapping paper, household tin paper to half
Rigid foil containers, covers and laminated foil bags for aluminum foil applications offer a variety of packaging solutions to meet today\'s sustainability challenges.
The physical properties of aluminum foil, such as the absolute barrier effect, lead to more protection and longer shelf
Live for the content of the product and better preserve its nutritional and health benefits.
The end result is: reducing food waste and improving resource efficiency.
In addition, less use of resources will reduce the overall impact on the environment and improve profitability.
All in all: more efficient packaging will eventually save resources, or in other words, more is less!
Some of the unique properties of aluminum foil are listed below, and examples of how these properties provide resourcesand energy-
Efficient solution.
Barrier: aluminum foil, as an absolute barrier to light, gas and moisture, almost perfectly preserves aroma, flavor and other product features, thus protecting the quality of the product.
It has an efficient barrier function compared to weight, E. G. g.
1 liter of milk in a beverage box, only 1 liter.
5G aluminum enough to accommodate an environmental shelf
Life of a few months
Aluminum foil helps reduce food waste by extending the service life of the product at room temperature, and then saves important resources used to produce food.
This also saves energy as products can be saved without the need for refrigeration.
Product packaging ratio: in particular, since aluminum foil has absolute barrier properties even on very low meters, very efficient and very light packaging solutions can be developed.
The product packaging of flexible foil packaging is very high than usually, and may be 5 to 10 times higher than the rigid packaging used for the same application.
The high proportion of the product to the package means that fewer packaging materials are used to protect and deliver the same number of products.
This also means that there is less energy to transport whether empty or full of packaging.
At the end of life, there was a significant decrease in the number of packaging waste generated
Ability: excellent ability for foil to be used alone or in combination with other materials (
Paper and/or plastic)
Flexibility to provide easy packaging (food)
Appropriate and convenient parts.
Providing an appropriate amount of food can prevent excessive food
Prepare and finish
Waste of food.
Also extended the shelf
By keeping the life of food packed and protected, unprepared.
Material and space efficiency: aluminum foil can be effectively laminated with other materials, combining the specific properties of several flexible packaging substrates in a complementary way to improve overall performance and a very limited number of materials used.
The number of materials used in flexible foil packaging is reduced, plus it is delivered in the form of rolls, improving space efficiency during storage and transportation, and further saving energy and costs.
Mechanical properties: the foil\'s unique light and strong \"dead angle\" feature allows it to tightly wrap the product without any glue or other sealing system.
Easy to pack and repack for home foil, for example
Ability helps prevent food waste by properly protecting goods at home or at homethe-
The possibility to effectively save leftovers.
Thermal conductivity: aluminum is an excellent thermal conductor that can withstand extreme temperatures.
Alufoil is ideal for high pressure sterilization, heating
Sealing and other hot processes (e. g. retort).
Excellent thermal conductivity minimizes processing, sealing, cooling and reprocessing
Heating time, thus saving energy, and ensuring better protection of the sensory and nutritional quality of the food by flattening the extreme temperature gradient inside the product.
Conductivity: aluminum foil has excellent conductivity
Contact accuracy-
Free sealing, thus expanding the application range of efficient and fast filling technology.
The presence of aluminum foil in the package contributes to induction and ultrasonic sealing, saving material and energy by minimizing the sealing area and time.
Reflectivity: aluminum foil reflects light and infrared heat up to 98%.
Good thermal reflectivity can save energy during the cooling or heating of food prepared for packaging. Multi-
Mode cooking: a unique combination of heat, Telex heat allows cooking or re-cooking food
Heated by a convection or microwave oven and/or a \"Bain Marine\" system.
The flexibility of heating/cooking helps save time and effort during preparation.
Recyclability: aluminum materials are completely recyclable without quality loss.
Increasing the collection and recovery/recovery rate of aluminum foil and aluminum foil packaging means an equal number of primary products (i. e. virgin)
Aluminum is not needed in the industry.
This represents significant energy savings, as the energy required for processing and recycling aluminum is 95% less than the equivalent amount of primary metals produced from bauxite.
In Europe, it is believed that the average recovery rate of all aluminum packages is above 60%.
The amount of aluminum packaging recycling depends to a large extent on the efficiency of the National Packaging collection plan for each European country.
For aluminum foil tray and half
Rigid containers, the latest statistics show that as the industry continues to work to increase the collection and recycling value of aluminum foil packaging, the average recovery rate in Europe is around 55%.
For foil flexible packaging, since the packaging is usually very thin, it is often laminated with plastic or paper, the aluminum content is usually low, it can also be recycled from the waste, and aluminum is recycled for closure
Recycling using technologies specially developed like pyrolysis.
In the case that the aluminum foil packaging is not collected separately for recycling and enters the energy recovery process, a large part of the aluminum in the packaging-
Even thin-gauge foil
Recovery can be collected from the bottom ashes.
Parts of aluminum that are oxidized during incineration release energy that is recycled and converted into heat and electricity.
Resource efficiency of aluminum foil packaging: For a given product, there are usually several effective packaging solutions that can perform the required functions.
However, some solutions are more efficient than others because they use less resources.
Due to the combination of the above-mentioned unique features, aluminum foil packaging supports the efficient utilization of resources and minimize waste throughout the life cycle of the packaged product.
Foil packaging helps save important food resources not only by providing optimized fitfor-
A solution that aims to reduce the risk of product waste, but it uses packaging materials very effectively throughout its life cycle.
