Metal packaging is recognized by consumers because of its versatility and versatility. Metal packaging can be seen everywhere in modern life. Its sustainable development and the following outstanding features make it an ideal packaging solution for the 21st century:
Advantages of metal packaging:
*Protect the product for a longer time; in the closed state, the food can be completely preserved from the time it is closed.
*Prevent product waste
*Maintain packaged nutrients; extend the shelf life of packaged products
*Ensure protection of light, oxygen and bacteria
*Keep the product fresh until the can is opened; metal packaging with extended shelf life can prevent light, oxygen and bacteria; canned food can ensure that the product remains fresh.
*Metals continue to have great potential for development and innovation. The range of applications is unlimited, from oral candy packaging, microwave cooking video aerosols and so on. Metal packaging is continuously improved and developed to meet the needs of customers and consumers.
Today, metal has been used in various products and packaging solutions, but designers continue to look for new opportunities to attract consumers. Metal boxes come in many shapes, sizes and decorations:
Catering, beverages, luxury goods, personal products, household daily necessities
Convenience is still the main driving force for the development of consumer packaging and commodity packaging. Changes in family structure, flexible working hours and commuting time have led to changes in consumption habits. Packaging families are getting smaller and smaller, and their lifestyles are getting busier. The packaging industry has been evolving to meet these ever-changing needs.
The metal packaging has high hardness, which improves product safety. Its barrier properties can maintain good quality and the entry of impurities, so as to ensure that the contents can reach consumers safely without contamination.
Metal packaging meets the new demands of consumers through easy-to-open, resealable packaging and easy-to-manage components that allow consumers to open only the items they need. The design of the metal can can be used in the microwave oven to expand the convenient metal packaging for light meals.
Canned food can be safely consumed for many years. This is an ideal choice for today’s meal or tomorrow’s emergency. The water tank does not need to be refrigerated or frozen. They provide comprehensive protection from light and oxygen, are sealed, and protect food nutrition. The product can also prevent moisture, dust, rodents and other pollutants.
3. The packaging is more refined
Embossing and embossing technology enables can manufacturers to produce innovative can designs. Embossing is a technique that produces a decoration or relief with a raised contour (from the inside to the outside), and to expand to produce a decoration with a concave contour (from the inside to the outside). The advantage of the convex and concave is that the existing external dimensions can be maintained, so there is no need to change the transportation and pallet space. The former metal is registered with printed graphics to maximize the visual and tactile effects. Images and graphics, brand logos, tactile warnings and brand recognition can be improved.
Today, the concept of environmental protection is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and recyclable metal packaging is favored by consumers; metal packaging can be recycled 100% indefinitely without losing its inherent characteristics. It is a permanently available resource that is widely recycled and used all over the world. It is one of the packaging materials with the highest recycling rate. Steel and aluminum are among the most abundant resources in the world, although recycled materials greatly reduce the environmental impact of processing.
Among all the major competitive packaging materials, the metal recycling rate and recycling rate are the highest, and they are increasing year by year: in 2019, the recycling rates of steel cans and aluminum beverage cans were 80% and 75% respectively; recycling can reduce energy consumption And carbon dioxide emissions.
In the past 20 years, precise engineering design features (such as embossed patterns and end panel designs) have increased the weight of metal boxes by 35%, thereby enhancing their environmental reputation. Weight reduction will continue to be a feature of metal packaging in the coming years.
