Product Description:

Aluminium foil acts as a total barrier to light and oxygen (which cause fats to oxidise or become rancid), odours and flavours, moistness, and germs, it is used broadly in food and pharmaceutical packaging. The purpose of aluminium is to make long-life packs (aseptic processing|aseptic packaging) for drinks and dairy goods, which allows storing without refrigeration. Aluminium foil containers and trays are used to bake pies and to pack takeaway meals, ready snacks and long life pet foods.

Aluminium foil is widely sold into the consumer market, often in rolls of 500 mm (20 in) width and several metres in length.It is used for wrapping food in order to preserve it, for example, when storing leftover food in a refrigerator (where it serves the additional purpose of preventing odour exchange), when taking sandwiches on a journey, or when selling some kinds of take-away or fast food. Tex-Mex restaurants in the United States, for example, typically provide take-away burritos wrapped in aluminium foil.

Aluminium foils thicker than 25 μm (1 mil) are impermeable to oxygen and water. Foils thinner than this become slightly permeable due to minute pinholes caused by the production process.

Aluminium foil has a shiny side and a matte side. The shiny side is produced when the aluminium is rolled during the final pass. It is difficult to produce rollers with a gap fine enough to cope with the foil gauge, therefore, for the final pass, two sheets are rolled at the same time, doubling the thickness of the gauge at entry to the rollers. When the sheets are later separated, the inside surface is dull, and the outside surface is shiny. This difference in the finish has led to the perception that favouring a side has an effect when cooking. While many believe that the different properties keep heat out when wrapped with the shiny finish facing out, and keep heat in with the shiny finish facing inwards, the actual difference is imperceptible without instrumentation.The reflectivity of bright aluminium foil is 88% while dull embossed foil is about 80%.

Aluminium (or aluminum; see spelling differences) is a chemical element in the boron group with symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery white, soft, ductile metal. Aluminium is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon), and the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface. Aluminium metal is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare and limited to extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals.The chief ore of aluminium is bauxite.

Aluminium is remarkable for the metal's low density and for its ability to resist corrosion due to the phenomenon of passivation. Structural components made from aluminium and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry and are important in other areas of transportation and structural materials. The most useful compounds of aluminium, at least on a weight basis, are the oxides and sulfates.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, no known form of life uses aluminium salts metabolically. In keeping with its pervasiveness, aluminium is well tolerated by plants and animals. Owing to their prevalence, potential beneficial (or otherwise) biological roles of aluminium compounds are of continuing interest.

The earliest citation given in the Oxford English Dictionary for any word used as a name for this element is alumium, which British chemist and inventor Humphry Davy employed in 1808 for the metal he was trying to isolate electrolytically from the mineral alumina. The citation is from the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London: "Had I been so fortunate as to have obtained more certain evidences on this subject, and to have procured the metallic substances I was in search of, I should have proposed for them the names of silicium, alumium, zirconium, and glucium."

Davy settled on aluminum by the time he published his 1812 book Chemical Philosophy: "This substance appears to contain a peculiar metal, but as yet Aluminum has not been obtained in a perfectly free state, though alloys of it with other metalline substances have been procured sufficiently distinct to indicate the probable nature of alumina."[69] But the same year, an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy's book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, "for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound."

The -ium suffix conformed to the precedent set in other newly discovered elements of the time: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, and strontium (all of which Davy isolated himself). Nevertheless, -um spellings for elements were not unknown at the time, as for example platinum, known to Europeans since the 16th century, molybdenum, discovered in 1778, and tantalum, discovered in 1802. The -um suffix is consistent with the universal spelling alumina for the oxide (as opposed to aluminia), as lanthana is the oxide of lanthanum, and magnesia, ceria, and thoria are the oxides of magnesium, cerium, and thorium respectively.

The aluminum spelling is used in the Webster's Dictionary of 1828. In his advertising handbill for his new electrolytic method of producing the metal in 1892, Charles Martin Hall used the -um spelling, despite his constant use of the -ium spelling in all the patents[58] he filed between 1886 and 1903. It has consequently been suggested[by whom?] that the spelling reflects an easier-to-pronounce word with one fewer syllable, or that the spelling on the flyer was a mistake.[citation needed] Hall's domination of production of the metal ensured that aluminum became the standard English spelling in North America.

Q:Does working in the aluminum foil companies harm the health?
I am working in the same company with her and I am a maintenance worker in aluminum foil workshop.To be honest, it is the cleanest workshop in the whole factory. Only little kerosene can be smelt. What's more, her main job is foreigh trade, nearly outside the workshop.
Q:What‘s the highest temperature aluminum foil can withstand?
Aluminum foil is flexible metal film, not only with moisture, air tightness, shading, abrasion resistance, Paul fragrance, non-toxic and tasteless, and other advantages, but also because of its elegant silver-white luster, ease of processing a variety of colors and beautiful patterns patterns, and thus more vulnerable to people of all ages.
Q:How dose cable aluminum foil work?
The only requirement is a high standard high: the length must be strict compliance. After casting and rolling aluminum foil, cold rolled, cut and then completely after annealing, in accordance with customer requirements for length of aluminum foil, aluminum foil is divided into small volumes.
Q:In which way does composite aluminum foil achieves heat insulation?
The features: the first aluminum foil layer(1), the second aluminum foil layer(3)and plastic film layer (2) bond together. Plastic film(2) is between the first aluminum foil layer(1)and the second aluminum foil layer(3). This utility model composite aluminum has good strength,toughness,shock resistance and high ability of acidproof and alkaliproof. It is also with property of gas insulation,thermal insulation,ultraviolet ray insulation and radiation protection.The outside two layers of composite aluminum foil is aluminum foil, which appearence is like the current monolayer aluminum foil and with the same property with it. It can save the material costs and is the ideal substitute of monolayer aluminum foil.
Q:How to prevent aluminum foil from wrinkling?
Due to the strip shape is serious bad, folding formed in the process of aluminum foil coiling or expanding. Its essence is that its tension is not enough to make the box surface flattening. For a device with the tension of 20 mpa, the box surface flatness shall not be greater than 301. When it is more than 301, it will wrinkle inevitably. Due to the rolling aluminum box often bear the bigger tension than follow-up processing, some aluminum foil that just show the bad strip shape when rolling turn to wrinkle when cutting or used after annealing. Main reasons of wrinkling are due to poor flatness controlling, including incorrect roll grinding ,unreasonable roll shape controlling, unreasonable parameter controlling of rolling and cutting process, bad incoming material strip shape and incorrect strip shape adjusting and imperfect precision of sleeve or tube core. Main reasons of wrinkles: The large amount of pressure make the rolling uneven or coiling lack tension. Improper controlling of roll shape or rolling pressure is too low; Uneven thickness of billet, bad flatness or shear wave. Winding shaft precision is not good and the sleeve is not round. Improper control of pressing roller pressure.

Q:What is the thermal insulation principle of aluminum tape?
Heat is transferred by convection, conduction and radiation. Aluminum tape often is used for wrapping the thermal insulation layer and its silver surface can block heat radiation. Since aluminum is a good conductor of heat, wrapping the tape with aluminum foil does quicken the heat loss instead of heat preservation. Therefore, it's better to wrap with heat-insulated cotton before wrapping with aluminum foil. Actually the thermal insulation cotton preserves heat rather than the aluminum foil which serves as a conductor to outside temperature to protect the inside temperature. It is featured by thermal insulation, waterproofness and corrosion resistance. Due to its extremely low absorption coefficient solar radiation, it can isolate from most of the heat transfer. Introduction to several major products of aluminum foil.
Q:What's the difference between aluminum foil paper and tin foil paper?
Tin foil paper is a filmed metallic paper coated with something like silver, such as the metallic paper used for cigarette packaging. The color is silver. aluminum foil paper is a metallic paper by bonding the slip sheet of aluminum foil and aluminum foil paste. It is used for food damp proof and packaging. Both can be used for cooking and package.
Q:The applications of aluminum foil
Scrap aluminum foil can be used to make poly aluminum chloride which is a common kind of inorganic polymer flocculants. The broad sources of raw material for manufacturing poly aluminum chloride lay the foundation for its development, especially the diversity of production processes which provides convenience for the development of poly aluminum chloride. International and domestic manufacture and application has scaled up and theory research has gained further development. Manufacturing material mainly include bauxite, aluminum hydroxide and waste molecular sieve catalyst. Manufacturing methods mainly contain wet process and electrolytic process. As some scholars think scrap aluminum foil has high economic value for recycling, they research the best conditions to produce poly aluminum chloride with scrap aluminum foil and the range of application for purifying water via experiments. With the development of industry and the rapid growth of urban population, water pollution is increasingly serious, which lead to more sewage to purify and more purifier to meet the increasing demand. As poly aluminum chloride molecule has different quantities of hydroxyl, it will hydrolyze under the PH condition of the source water and be accompanied with a series of physical and chemical process like coagulation, absorption and deposit after adding poly aluminum chloride to the turbid source water to purify the water. There is a wide source for scrap aluminum foil mainly from the package of cigarette, food and medicine, whose main component is aluminum, so it has high economic and social value to recycle scrap aluminum foil. The best conditions to produce poly aluminum chloride with scrap aluminum foil and the range of application for purifying water have practical significance for the increase of resource utilization rate and environment protection after test and research.
Q:What is foil bags vacuum cooking?
