Specialists in Lacquering Aluminium Coils

Alucoat® cs

bobina-alucoat-cs-introAlucoat® cs is the designation of ALUCOAT for the lacquered foil intended to be used for the production of semi-rigid containers for food packaging. Due to its unique properties, Alucoat® cs coils are ideal for the reduction of cooking time, cooling and heating, thanks to an excellent thermal conductivity. Besides it provides a high barrier protection for light, gas and contamination, that improves the food conservation.
Its main advantages are:

  • Decorative potential, can be printed.
  • Extraordinary properties for inlaying, with lacquers especially developed by our technical department for single inlay process as well as double inlay.
  • Good mechanical protection and light weight, that allows to economizing on storage and transport.


  • Safe for use in contact with food stuff (according to European Directives and FDA).
  • Food can be heated by convection, fan or microwave oven.
  • Aluminium containers can be recycled.
  • ALUCOAT supplies its product Alucoat® cs in reels of wide until 1.250 mm, with steel core or carton up to 150 mm, maximum diameter of 1.000 mm and maximum weight of 2 tonnes.




The excellent composition Alucoat® cs lacquered coils allow a multiple applications within food industry:

  • Container for heat processed dairy desserts.
  • Container for Pâtés.
  • Container for prepared and oven ready meal.
  • Container for ready to cook-frozen desserts.
