Metal Packaging

About Metal Packaging

Metal packaging is made of steel, aluminum, or steel and tin.

Proven and convenient, metal offers premium packaging solutions to meet a wide range of market needs.


  • To make long life packs (aseptic packaging) for drinks and dairy products which enables storage without refrigeration.
  • To package many other oxygen or moisture sensitive foods, and tobacco, in the form of pouches, sachets and tubes, and as tamper evident closures.
  • Its use in semi rigid and rigid packaging is growing in the form of closures, trays, tubs, tubes, aerosols, cans and ends.
  • Aluminum foils used for gift wraps, household use, a wide variety of confectionery wrappers and, in heavier gauges, more or less rigid ‘cook-in/serve-in’ food containers.


  • Unbreakable impact-resistant and puncture-resistant
  • Withstand extreme temperatures and pressure
  • Provide a total barrier against light, gas and oxygen


  • Quick and easy to use modern opening solutions have relegated the can opener to history
  • The choice for on-to-go from a beverage can to a deodorant
  • Designed to meet modern lifestyles-portion-sized or reclosable

  • Metals are natural elements that maintain their physical properties forever. Once metal enters the material-to-material loop, in which it is recycled again and again, it will always be available for future generations. This means metal is a permanent material.

  • Aluminum is used for long production runs (drinks) and as foil
  • Aluminum foil has excellent barrier properties for sensitive foods (chocolate, cheese)
  • Aluminum is more expensive than steel
  • Special technology is required to form into cans
