Aluminium packaging is storming ahead as brands latch on to its strong consumer appeal as a fully sustainable medium with contemporary aesthetics and a number of practical benefits

Packaging specialist Vetroplas has seen growing demand for aluminium in both personal care and household products – and it can now offer a range of aluminium bottles for the beverage industry, supplied by the Envases Group and produced in its Spanish manufacturing plant.

The bottles are 100 per cent and forever recyclable, lightweight – thus reducing their carbon footprint and distribution costs – unbreakable and the contents cool faster. Aluminium also provides an efficient light barrier.

There are two designs: a bottle with a taller, slim neck profile with either crown cork caps or pilfer-proof screw caps – available in 330, 375 and 500 ml.  The more rounded oval neck style also comes with pilfer proof screw caps in a wide range of sizes from 50 to 750 ml. Early samples, some showing decoration options, will be available in selected sizes.

To help products stand out from the crowd, a high degree of personalisation is possible using decoration techniques such as offset printing, coloured base coats, hot stamping and shaping.

The bottles are expected to appeal both to the soft drinks and alcoholic sectors with smaller sizes ideal for wellness shot drinks. A Food Grade internal liner can be provided in line with European and American standards.
