Aluminium foil is a key material for the packaging industries. It is ubiquitous in many packaged product forms, such as milk or juice cartons and the blister packs dispensing pharmaceutical tablets. No competing material has been able to match its combination of formability, printability and excellent barrier properties, making aluminium foil unsurpassed when it comes to protecting and preserving our complex food supply chains.
Even though aluminium foil has been manufactured for well over a century, the production of Highquality Aluminium Foil for converting applications still has elements that are not universally understood or which are without a clear, common scientific understanding. Manufacturers rely on maintaining the stability of processes developed through trial and error long ago. However, small changes in the supply chain or process can cause defects that are difficult to troubleshoot.
