Aluminum foil alloys for food container lids

Pure aluminum is a soft, light, and easy-to-process metal material with good corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity. It is often used to make the inner layer of food container lids to protect the freshness of food and prevent external contamination.

In addition to pure aluminum, commonly used aluminum alloys include aluminum-silicon alloys, aluminum-magnesium alloys, and aluminum-titanium alloys. These alloys have higher strength and hardness while maintaining good corrosion resistance and thermal conductivity, so in some special cases, these alloys can be selected to make food container lids.

Alloy model using aluminum foil for food container lids

  • 3003 aluminum foil: It has good formability and strength, and is suitable for making deep-drawn food container covers.
  • 8011 aluminum foil: It has good formability, toughness, and corrosion resistance, and is a common material for making food container lids.
  • 5052 Aluminum Foil: It has high strength and corrosion resistance, and is suitable for making large food container lids.
