Beer Neck Foils are made from thin aluminum foil that is used on beer bottles as a decorative and pilfer proofing seal. This is an essential packaging material for most brands of beer.
Aluminum foil capsules or bottleneck labels add visual prestige to any type of bottle. They are a valuable part of the product’s personality and a guarantee of authenticity. Champagne and traditional bottled beers use them as a hallmark of product quality.
But the Aluminium foil is not just there for decoration. It ensures security, providing tamper evidence in the case of ‘over the crown’ Aluminium foil. Aluminum foil’s physical properties of ‘deadfold’ and malleability enable it to mold with the contours of bottles and closures in an easy-to-apply and brand building way. Opening a twist-off cap or crown closure is easily done without disturbing the appearance of the neck foil thanks to tearing off perforation. The art and technology of bottleneck foils is moving ahead continually, resulting in material savings whilst retaining elegant appearance and high product security. Champagne capsules are generally made from thicker gauge aluminum foil which is sometimes coated or laminated with a plastic layer. Aluminum foil has been adopted as the natural successor to lead as the material for spin-on capsules for wine bottles. Neck foils are frequently embossed which, apart from giving a distinctive appearance, also makes the labels easy to handle. Other developments have also enabled smooth labels to be used. Labels with partial embossing adding an element of design appeal and individuality are a further option.
