Soft packaging Aluminium foil, whether unsupported or laminated to paper and films, is now an almost mandatory material for flexible packaging in the food industry. Every consumer is familiar with household foil, but foil is also widely used in sachets and pouches, dairy lids, bottleneck foil, capsules, labels, seals and other applications. Aluminium foil comes in different gauges, typically ranging in thicknesses from 0.006 to 0.080 mm.
Foil is not only cost-effective but also provides complete food protection. It is unrivaled as a barrier layer, completely excluding light, gases, oil and fat, volatile compounds and water vapor. Aluminium foil is temperature resistant, thermally stable and an extremely good conductor of heat. It is also strong, durable and safe for use in contact with all foodstuffs.
