Aluminum foil containers are a cost–effective, environmentally friendly solution that has found widespread use in the retail, food service, and baking industries. Manufacturers produce billions of aluminum foil containers every year, and Aleris provides light–gauge aluminum products for the semi-rigid foil used to make these containers.
Products & Capabilities
Semi-rigid foil containers made from Aleris’ coated and plain aluminum foil remain one of the most efficient and cost-effective methods for packaging foods in both carry-out and pre-packaged applications. These containers can be used in a wide variety of temperature and food processing applications. And consumers can cook, freeze, transport, and serve food all in a single, safe, convenient aluminum package.
Aluminum foil containers promote freshness and increase shelf life, but do not absorb moisture or grease. To resist corrosion from acidic foods, increase lubricity, and improve appearance, Aleris offers light epoxy or vinyl coating for its aluminum packaging products. Our semi–rigid foil is resistant to temperatures ranging from minus 40°F/40°C to 450°F/232°C.
Our facility in Clayton, New Jersey is Aleris’ primary manufacturing operation for light-gauge aluminum that is used in packaging applications.
