Aluminium cans currently represent one of the most widely used containers for packaging purposes. They are often made from recycled aluminium and act as a barrier against air, light and moisture. This also makes them rust-resistant and capable of preserving the flavour and quality of the contents. In addition to this, aluminium cans have high strength and do not require much care during distribution and handling. Apart from this, they are lightweight, offer efficiency while shipping and storage, and limit carbon emissions. Other benefits offered by aluminium cans include recyclability, malleability, corrosion resistance and low cost of production.
