Over 90 percent of the material thyssenkrupp Rasselstein produces is used in the packaging industry.
Important applications include
- cans for food and pet food
- packaging for chemical or technical products
- aerosol cans
- beverage cans
Our blackplate is an ideal substrate for metallic or organic coatings. It will also accommodate functional coatings, such as rubberizing for the manufacture of gaskets.
A proven material for packaging and many other applications
Steel from thyssenkrupp Rasselstein is more than a packaging material.
The thin steel strip is used in many other ways for a large variety of applications in areas such as the automotive and electronics industries, in construction, logistics and transport, and for household goods.
As in the packaging sector, the steel material can be supplied in varying thicknesses and combined with a broad choice of surface coatings, either metallic (such as tin, zinc, or chromium) or organic in the form of lacquers or films (PE, PET or PP). The thinnest of steel foils are just 0.06 mm thick.
Easily formable steel grades are exceptionally well suited for sophisticated forming processes in the downstream value chain. thyssenkrupp Rasselstein has spearheaded the development and optimization of this material, with an innovation history spanning 150 years since its very first application. Despite constant reductions in thickness, the low-carbon, unalloyed steel has consistently offered high strength and elongation at fracture.
Steel strip from thyssenkrupp Rasselstein is thus an ideal material for applications in lightweight construction or multi-layered composites.
