Manufactured at our plant in Alicante, Spain, our aluminium strips products are available in a wide range of alloys and thicknesses from 40 to 200 µm. Used mainly for containers, aluminium strips is also used for industrial applications (roofing, heat exchanger, flexible tubes). It is the ideal material for wrapping and protecting food from air, humidity, light and micro-organisms thus preserving vitamins, taste and freshness. Other uses which benefit from the properties of aluminium foil include pharmaceutical packaging and capsules and cable protection. Some applications require improved lacquer or film adhesion and Alcoa is able to provide this by chemical degreasing and surface pretreating on our dedicated production line.
