Aluminium strip for tagger lids

Aluminium, when used in combination with other materials, is ideal for making cans. Every year, more than 700 million cans are sealed using foil from Hydro.

  • Our strip for tagger lids offers many favorable properties: It can be hermetically closed, it facilitates easy opening and guarantees the product a long shelf-life.

Custom design

  • We supply pure aluminium strip, either with a clear, protective lacquer coating or with a heat-seal lacquer coating, in thicknesses from 0.060 to 0.120 mm.
  • Hydro produces aluminium strip lacquered with a protective coating on both sides for “Penny Lever Closures” or coated with a heat-sealing lacquer on one side for “Peel-off“ applications.
  • Lids of this “Peel-off” quality can be opened very easily by means of the pre-formed easy open ring or tear-off tab. The lid detaches completely from the can.

Application areas

  • Packaging of powdered foodstuffs (milk, coffee, granulated beverages).
  • Dry products (tobacco, mixed spices).
