- Nov 23, 2019-

Different products have different requirements on the packaging material, shape and printing. For example, biscuits, chocolate, milk powder, rice noodles, and high-end food gift boxes in food are mainly iron boxes, while roasted snacks such as sunflower seeds and peanuts are mainly Paper and plastic materials. The food industry uses iron boxes as packaging with the following advantages.

    Appearance: Iron materials, especially tinplate boxes, have better tensile force, which is convenient for printing exquisite patterns and typesetting. The custom-designed iron boxes are exquisite and beautiful, making it easier to attract attention and higher grades.

    Strong protection: Whether it is ordinary iron or tinplate, the hardness and strength are very high. Tin cans made of tinplate generally have a thickness of 0.2 to 0.3 mm, and can be customized according to customer requirements.

    Easy to match: tinplate can be combined with other materials, such as a gift box with high-end paper packaging, or a PVC skylight on the top of the tin box.

    At the same time, the iron box has strong compression resistance and anti-fall performance, which can better protect the food from being easily deformed by bumps, squeezes and other factors during transportation.

    The iron box has many advantages, such as energy saving and environmental protection, which can be recycled, better light-shielding, tightness, moisture and insect resistance, etc., but the disadvantage is that the cost is slightly higher than that of similar paper and plastic packaging
