Aluminum bottle caps are widely used in the packaging industry to seal various types of bottles, such as glass bottles and plastic bottles. They are superior to other materials due to their unique properties such as light weight, durability and corrosion resistance.

Aluminum Bottle Cap

The most commonly used aluminum alloy for bottle caps is 8011, known for its excellent deep drawing properties, strength and tear resistance. Other alloys also used include 1060, 1070 and 3105 which have their own unique properties and benefits.

8011 Aluminum Bottle Cap

  • Use state : H14, H16, H18
  • Advantages : excellent deep drawing performance, high strength, good tear resistance, good sealing performance and good barrier performance.
  • Application : Widely used in wine and beer bottle caps, and sealing of various glass and plastic bottles.
  • Specific application examples : wine bottle caps, beer bottle caps, various food and beverage bottle caps.
  • Disadvantages : low corrosion resistance in the presence of strong acids and alkalis.

Aluminum alloys for caps should be selected based on the specific requirements of the application, including the desired mechanical and corrosion resistance properties, and the ability to form the alloy into the desired shape using deep drawing techniques.

Aluminum bottle caps come in various shapes and sizes and can be customized according to specific requirements. They are usually produced using a process called deep drawing, which involves using a mold to shape the metal into the desired shape. Once formed, the caps are given a thin coat of lacquer to improve their corrosion resistance and provide a surface suitable for printing logos or designs.

One of the advantages of using aluminum bottle caps is their ability to provide an airtight seal, which helps keep the contents of the bottle fresh for a longer period of time. They also provide tamper resistance, ensuring that the bottle has not been opened before it reaches the consumer.
