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.

Where hydropower happens: From water we can create clean, renewable energy♻️. Pictured is our Holsbru power plant located adjacent to our Årdal primary metal plant. The powerplant sits at the end of a penstock connected to a six kilometer long water tunnel from the Rausdøla River and Holsbruvatnet. Holsbru generates electricity from a waterhead of 688 meters and two Pelton turbines. The energy generated is then used to produce aluminium in our many facilities. World-wide , about two thirds of our aluminium prodcution is powered by renewable energy – how about that? #aluminiumbyhydro 3 likes
