Aluminium – Protect your investment – and the planet

Aluminium is the ideal material for sustainable packaging. It is light and solid and provides secure protection and reliable packaging for precious and sensitive products. In the production process of our cans and tubes we focus on the quality of the product and the safety of consumers. For safety reasons, the use of aluminium from post-consumer recycling is not suitable for aerosol containers produced in the cold-impact-extrusion-process, because inclusions in the material could reduce the pressure resistance. Nussbaum therefore uniquely uses primary aluminium or aluminium alloys in its production.

Aluminium can be recycled infinitely with 95% less energy consumption than required for the production of primary aluminium. However recycled aluminium only covers about 20% of the world's demand for aluminium. Around 75% of the aluminium ever produced is still used today. The long life cycle makes aluminium one of the most energy-efficient and resource-preserving raw materials.
