Semi-rigid containers

Aludium is manufacturer of food-grade alloys, perfect for forming & deep drawing into semi-rigid containers, smooth wall containers, corrugated walls & cans.

Semi-rigid aluminium containers are typically used as disposable or single-use containers to cook or reheat food. Like all aluminium for food applications, alloys used to make semi-rigid containers are impermeable, inert, and offer good mechanical properties. The alloys meet all regulatory requirements for food contact applications and do not jeopardise the organoleptic (taste or smell) properties of the food.

Aludium offers a range of food-grade alloys which are suitable for forming into semi-rigid containers.

To find out more about our offer for semi-rigid containers, see below.

SEMI RIGID CONTAINERS
Aluminium for packaging which is characterised by its impermeability, mechanical properties when drawn, ability to be painted, and inert properties. These products do not jeopardise the organoleptic features of the packaged food.
