Amcor Alufix wins an EAFA Alufoil Trophy

Alufix is Amcor's convenient solution for can closures.

Not only does this easy-to-peel aluminum membrane make the opening process simple and safe, it requires up to 50% less force to open compared to traditional ring-pull ends. With Alufix® Dry Pro the peeling of the membrane has become even smoother. Furthermore, the aluminum thickness has been reduced by 30% while fully maintaining the excellent barrier properties.

The Alufix® Dry Pro lid is part of an innovative and convenient two-compartmented all metal pack for the Nestlé Easy Scoop infant formula project.

Easy Scoop features a combination of a new Deep Drawn End from Ardagh Group and an Alufix® Dry Pro peel-off alufoil membrane from Amcor. The pack creates a cavity for a spoon by sealing the bottom of the steel Deep Drawn End with the alufoil membrane to the inner part of the ring. The end is sealed to the can in the normal way and the pack is topped by a plastic lid.

The spoon and an information leaflet are placed on top of the Alufix® membrane which features an easy-open tab. After removal of the easy-open tamper evident membrane the spoon is conveniently stored on the inner lip formed above but separate from the formula. This ensures not only an easy access to the spoon but also high levels of hygiene and food safety.

EAFA will display this product together with the other winner products at Interpack 2011 in Düsseldorf (May 12-18). Amcor will show Alufix® Dry Pro in combination with Easy Scoop at Metpack in Essen from May 10-14 and at PLMA's “World of Private Label” show in Amsterdam on May 24-25.
