The aluminium is one of the most noble raw materials that exist. It is used in a daily way and, probably, it is not known the great versatility of its uses, for example, we find it in the streets, buildings, transport, offices, houses, conservation of food products, packages…
The properties it inherently possesses, compared with other materials, makes it a safe bet both in the present and in the future. It is lightweight, malleable, mouldable, and highly resistant to high temperatures, humidity and corrosion. It is 100% recycled and regardless of the number of times it is reused, it does not lose any of its properties during the process. This means that its circular economy is infinite.
IBERFOIL bets for the aluminium, the applications of its coils in the different sectors are:
- Food sector: They are used to create containers, food lids, flexible packaging, pet food, tetra brik
They protect the food from external agents by keeping it intact. Aluminium does not produce odours or flavours, it keeps cold or heat and is light-resistant, keeping food in perfect condition for longer, allowing its expiry date to be longer.
- Pharmaceutical and cosmetic sector: with the coils it’s possible to manufacture general packaging for medicines such as blister packs, envelopes for medicines (paracetamol ) caps with a high breaking load (cold form), protective film for creams or make-up.
- Industrial sector and air conditioning: IBERFOIL coils ensure thermal resistance, reflecting up to 95% of radiant heat, which makes them a perfect insulation material for industrial use. Likewise, thanks to the malleability and adaptation of aluminium, they are also used in the manufacture of air conditioning equipment.
- They are suitable for the closure of drinks such as shakes or wine bottles, are waterproof and protect against spillage thanks to their heat-sealing properties.
