Major material / production technologies projects

Eurofoil has launched a major project to expand its casting capacity. Globally, for the 2 rolling plants in Luxembourg and France, this multi-million-€ investment is increasing Eurofoil’s foilstock autonomy well beyond 90%. It will help to consolidate the position of Eurofoil as a market leader in Europe with a robust and strategically secure supply chain.

The R&D team contribute to this project by optimising the casting as well as the downstream processes in order to extend the range of applications for the material produced from the continuous casting process.

The other priorities are to continuously improve the runnability of our material on our customers machines and to develop new surface functional properties for aluminium foil.

Technical/technological capabilities

Foil rolling 6 micron – 300 micron:

  • Eurofoil is a major producer of converter foil from 6 micron upwards: As part of a laminate, an aluminium foil layer as thin as 6 microns acts as a barrier against gas and light and prolongs the shelf-life of sensitive and valuable foodstuffs or pharmaceutical and cosmetic goods; Eurofoil’s converter foil meets standards on contact with foodstuffs and complies with hygiene practices, in line with international food and pharmaceutical packaging standards.
  • Eurofoil manufactures converter foil and strip up to 300 micron (exceptionnaly above) used in a range of building and roofing applications, notably as insulation in laminated panels and as incombustible insulating material for pipe work and ducting.
