Keep it fresh – with aluminium

Ultra-thin aluminium foil protects food and beverages like no other material can.

It’s light, it’s air-tight, it’s thin – and it keeps your food and drinks safe and fresh. Yes, it’s our aluminium for packaging.

A little bit of aluminium goes a long way. Just one 25-kg block of our aluminium can be used to produce enough ultra-thin aluminium foil for packaging to protect the contents of 19,000 one-liter containers.

We are the world’s leading supplier of light-gauge aluminium foil for liquid aseptic packaging down to 6.0 µm and widths up to 2,020 mm and are a partner to leading customers in the packaging Industry, including Tetra Pak, Amcor and SIG.

Fresh food packaging

With its excellent barrier and sealing properties, aluminium foil creates the highest quality aseptic packaging material for beverages, soups and dehydrated food, keeping foodstuffs fresh for months without refrigeration – even milk and juices.

Aluminium foil keeps foodstuffs fresh for months without refrigeration – even milk and juices. That’s refreshing to know.

This long-term protection means that food and drinks are less perishable, and so less likely thrown away due to spoilage. The foil imparts no taste to the contents, and in fact, it prevents the contents from losing nutritional value, vitamins or aroma.

And with this lightweight packaging, it takes less fuel to deliver products to the consumer. This saves money and lowers emissions from transport.

That’s refreshing to know.

Our ultra-thin aluminium foil for packaging keeps light and air out, and freshness in.

Aluminium's flexibility, strength and light weight are some of the qualities that make it attractive in so many different applications . But for aluminum to be a strong construction material, it needs to be mixed with small amounts of other metals. When mixed in appropriate portions, aluminium’s strength can equal that of steel, yet its weight is still only one-third of the weight of steel. #aluminiumbyhydro 0 likes

Do you recycle? Our recycling plant in Clervaux recently had a significant upgrade - by increasing it's prodution capacity from 90,000 m/t per year to 105,000 tonnes aluminium per year. The upgrade has two key features: it allows the plant to take in more post-consumed scrap and boost volumes, yet lower energy consumption and reduce carbon emissions♻️. #aluminium #recycle #aluminiumbyhydro 2 likes

It's all in the details: Every third newspaper or magazine page globally is printed using plates based on our lithographic aluminium from Grevenbroich. This is from the finishing end of production, where we ensure a particularly even, flawless surface of the litographic sheet. Our total production capacity in Grevenbroich is 440,000 metric tonnes of aluminium per year - made by around 2,000 competent colleagues. #aluminiumbyhydro #aluminium 3 likes
