our differential value.

Quality is our basic competitive differential value, and our company has achieved an integral quality control system. The containers manufactured in our facilities are subject to strict controls throughout the entire production process.
Quality control also extends to the receipt of materials. S.H. METALGRAF has the UNE-EN-ISO 9001/00 quality certification for the manufacturing and sale of metal containers.
In turn, the company is registered in the General Food Safety Register for the undertaking of activities in the manufacturing, creation and transformation of metals and alloys.
Our containers are also approved to transport dangerous goods.

Respect for the Environment.

The main aim of our environmental policy is to avoid pollution, reduce waste and keep energy consumption low. Furthermore, the entire company is lit with LED technology.
Metal containers are less harmful to the environment than other materials used to contain chemical products or oils, as they are 100% recyclable and biodegradable.

Steel containers have a unique characteristic, in that they are magnetic. This quality makes them stand out from other materials used to produce containers, making them easier and cheaper to separate and recycle than other market options.
The use of steel for containers is exceptional given its mechanical properties, its design potential, its economic benefits and last, though by no means least, its impressive environmental advantages.

Sustainability. Facts and Figures.

Regarding raw materials: abundance of resources for metal containers. 
• Aluminium and steel respectively are the 3rd and 4th most abundant elements in the lithosphere, after oxygen and silicon.
• Recycling significantly reduces the use of raw materials and energy, which leads to an on-going improvement of the environmental credentials of metal containers.

Regarding recycled materials: infinite recyclability without losing value 
• Metal containers are recycled in a genuine cycle, or “from material to the same material”.
• Steel tins: recycling levels over the 65% in Europe
• Aluminium tins: recycling levels over the 50% in Europe.
• Metals have the highest recycling rates of any container material in Europe.
• Aluminium and steel are materials that can be recycled an infinite number of times without losing or damaging their essential properties.
• Steel and aluminium are therefore “reusable materials”.
Recovered metal feeds the production cycle – it is not a waste product.

Regarding prevention: saving resources
Metal offers a highly flexible approach to reusing material, and through recycling it constitutes a tried and tested resource for the sustainability of the future.

Over the past 20 years:
• Aluminium tins are 28% lighter
• Steel food containers are 33% lighter
Steel produced from 100% scrap metal requires 75% less energy than steel produced from new raw materials.
Aluminium produced from 100% scrap metal uses 95% less energy than aluminium produced from new raw materials.
The on-going reduction of the weight of tins constitutes an important contribution to preventing excess waste.

Better aluminium and steel recycling:
– Will save natural resources
– Will reduce the total waste of domestic containers
– Will also reduce the carbon footprint produced by steel and aluminium containers.

Regarding Metal Containers
Retail and wholesale industry, distribution and industrial sectors:
Tins of all sizes, shapes and decorations
Tins for all kinds of food types
Alcoholic drinks, still and sparkling water and soft drinks
Pet foods
Paint and coatings
Industrial and domestic use chemical substances
Sprays and aerosols, for food, automation and domestic use
Decorated tins
Lids and closures

Advantages for Consumers and on the Supply Chain
– Protects the contents from damage
– Acts as a barrier against heat and light
– Offers 100% protection against dirt, bacteria and parasites, and is a barrier against humidity, oxygen and odours.
– A safe container for potentially dangerous products.
– Resistant to blows, robust and safe for transport and handling – does not break.
– Requires less secondary packaging.
– Easy to store
– Resistance to high temperatures for use in furnaces.
– Quick cooling for refrigerated products.
– Saves energy in transportation, storage and distribution without requiring freezing or refrigeration.

Adds value with functional and decorative developments.
Thanks to new easy-open devices and to re-sealing methods, model options, decoration directly onto the tin, self-heating, self-cooling and advanced coatings, modern metal containers will continue to meet consumer needs along the supply chain today and tomorrow.
