ALUCOAT launches a new alloy for the packaging industry
The food packaging industry demands thickness reductions in packaging products, chasing a maximization and optimization that provides a higher performance of the products using less quantity of material in each container.
Therefore, the R & D department of ALUCOAT has worked with a supplier for more than a year, coming up with a new alloy from the 5000 series with a higher amount of magnesium (Mg), achieving a significant reduction of material in each packaging and reducing the content of iron (Fe) increasing the resistance to corrosion.
With this new development, ALUCOAT offers its customers a significant saving in materials and at the same time provides better technical characteristics of the product. Indeed, an alloy with increased hardness and purity that keeps a rigid material with a thinner aluminium.
