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:What is the oxygen permeability standard of anti-static aluminum foil bags?
The peeling force GB/T1038-2000 is not less than 3.0N15mmShielding MIL-B-81705-C >40 DBShielding voltage ELA541 = 10 voltsThe inner surface resistivity is ASTM D-257 = 1011 ohms
Q:Is it easy to recyle aluminium?
Recycling aluminum cans is fairly simple. Just bag/box them up and haul them in. Other types of aluminum can be a little more of a challenge. Like with aluminum siding or sheets of aluminum. Hope that helps.
Q:What is the material of aluminum foil roll?
Aluminum foil roll is a kind of common rollThe roll is an important part of a rolling mill on a steel mill, rolled and rolled by the pressure produced by rolling a pair or a set of rolls. It is mainly affected by static and dynamic loads, wear and temperature changes during rolling.According to the general manufacturing process, due to the chilling effect of metal layer is white tissue (substrate + carbide) roll called chilled cast iron roll; with the above method, but increasing the iron carbon equivalent and mottled structure (substrate + carbide + graphite) roll called infinite cold and hard cast iron roll."Infinity" - derived from the English word "indefinite", is originally defined as "indefinite". It means that the quench layer has no definite boundary on the fracture surface and has been misinterpreted as "infinite". By using the sand lined metal mold and continuing to increase the carbon equivalent, the roll of coarse hemp can be obtained, which is called semi chilled cast iron roll. In all the tissues of the above-mentioned varieties, the graphite is spherical, called the spheroidal graphite cast iron roll, and the compound cast roller is compounded with the word "compound".
Q:How do I build a boat out of aluminum foil ?
we did this lab a few weeks ago. the surface area, the bottom, has to be as big as it could possibly be without going over the size limit. make it like 8inches x 4inches on the bottom with sides that are only and inch tall glue makes the boat way more allowing it to sink also the more wrinkles in the tin foil the faster it sinks
Q:How to remove the adhesive sticker in aluminum foil bag?
1.smear facial oil onto it, then dig it with your finger and finally wipe it with a wet towel. 2.using hair dryer, waiting the glue to become hot and then you can get it down. 3.using the essential balm and it will be off a few minutes later. 4.You can use a eraser. In the beginning, you may find it become dirtier, but if you continue, you may find that it works. 5. put it into water, then put a little detergent, and finally use an old toothbrush to brush it. 6. use a cloth dipped in alcohol or wipe it with alcohol. 7.Using a sodium water or paint thinner to wipe it. 8. using cotton swab with nail polish remover to wipe 9.Put a piece of paper soaked in vinegar, and then gently put it on the two-side glue, waitting three or four minutes, giving the double-sided adhesive enough time to absorbe, and then gently take it away.
Q:Is my engine block aluminum?
My 94 Civic has aluminum block. So I suspect you also have aluminum block. === I want to know if I can use an aluminum polish on it. that assumes you first need to grind away the pitting (oxidation). Good luck....... P.S. My block has the same problem.
Q:How strong is anodized aluminum?
Well it depends on the direction of the wind, height of the sun and the location of the axis of the earth in raltionship to the orbit of the moon !
Q:Did you know aluminum in deodorant cause breast cancer?
This is only a theory, but I avoided the aluminum based ANTI-PERSPERANTS anyway. The deoderants usually don't have aluminum, so I bought the products that just said deoderant. I used to use a woman's product without aluminum, now I cannot find women's products that only have deoderant. Some other men's products that DO NOT have anti-persperants/aluminum, are Speed Stick by Mennan,(various scents). Interesting that there is a theory that aluminum in ant-ipersperants, may cause breast cancer, and all of the women's deoderants now have aluminum in them. Wonder why that happened? Some company could make a fortune if they started manufacturing women's deoderants without the anti-persperant containing aluminum.
Q:How can you invest wisely in aluminium stocks?
I am just a student, so I wouldn't advise you to do more than confirm what I'm about to tell you with a licensed investment adviser before acting upon it. Firstly, the price of aluminium does impact the performance of the aluminium company's stock. This relationship, however, is not perfect and depends on the individual characteristics of the company. The relationship is more pronounced in companies that focus on only one element of production, such as extraction, as opposed to those that diversify their operations into other activities along the production line like refinement, etc. Secondly, about the input costs, sure they do affect metal producers (each differently from the next) as they do many other industries. However, the prices of metals and other commodities are likely to rise with any unanticipated inflation that may arise as a result of the current state of oil prices. So much so that that the effects of the oil price spike may be ignorable. Thirdly, in my opinion one year, is a short-term investment. In the long-term, however as long as your company survives I expect that it will do fine, meaning it may well be profitable. Volatility, however is a natural thing to all investments, but the risk-free ones and a premium is paid to all investors to compensate for this volatility, or risk as it is commonly called. What really matters at the end of the day is the long term trend, which is unknown but generally assumed to be positive. Lastly, if you really want to invest in the aluminium industry I suggest that you ask around about any Exchange Traded Fund or some other well diversified investment vehicle with a focus on Aluminium Producers or Aluminium itself. That would certainly be a safer way to participate in the Aluminium Industry, than investing in a single company.
Q:What is primary aluminum?
Aluminium that is produced from ore, as opposed to secondary aluminium which is produced from recycled aluminium products.
