Constellium is an innovation leader and supplier of an aluminium solution for the aerosol market setting new standards for environmental, processing, and economic performance.
The Aeral™ solution for the production of aerosol containers is truly innovative. It provides manufacturers a light and high-performing solution for their aerosol production.
Aeral™ was created through a combination of cutting-edge research at C-TEC and strong industrial capabilities at our rolling mill in Neuf-Brisach, which has a longtime experience in manufacturing lightweight products, including beverage cans.
Drawn & Ironed (D&I) Technology
The Aeral™ solution enables the production of aerosol containers using drawn & ironed (D&I) technology, which is the same method used in aluminium beverage can manufacturing. This process allows weight savings of up to 30% compared to traditional impact extruded containers, all while maintaining the same level of performance in terms of ductility and resistance to pressure. This weight reduction dramatically reduces the environmental footprint of aerosol containers.
This technology can also be applied to the manufacture of aluminium bottles.
