Winning entries demonstrate the best ofaluminium foil in multiple applications
- Alufoil Trophy 2020 winners once again show the wide range of applications and uses to which this truly flexible material can be successfully applied.
As the most important competition for innovation and performing excellence in the sector, the Alufoil Trophy, this year, attracted a very diverserange of products across the five categories.
From the purely marketing to purely engineering, and including outstanding environmental responsibility, every aspect of aluminium foil was scrutinised by the judges, who were headed by Veith Behrmann, Group Packaging Manager for Nestlé Nespresso. Commenting on the overall results Behrmann said, “Aluminium foil is a very multi-talented material and the entries in this year’s Alufoil Trophy showed just how clever innovators are at coming up with fresh ideas. In particular we were impressed by the potential for some of these products to be applied to wider markets.”
“We felt two entries, one packaging and one automotive application, were so worthy of recognition, that special awards for Innovative Use of Aluminium Foil were given. A special gas bag made from an alufoil laminate, in a new suspension system for Mercedes Benz, plus a range of reusable dining plates to replace disposable plastic and paper ones, show just why aluminium foil is so special and has such strong innovation potential,” he added.
