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:Is aluminum foil rubber & plastic thermal insulated material expensive?
Aluminum foil rubber & plastic thermal insulated material is expensive. 1: Huamei B1 Aluminum Foil Rubber & Plastic Thermal Insulated Material 980 yuan/m³. 2: B2 Aluminum Foil Rubber & Plastic Thermal Insulated Material 550 yuan/m³, factory price 3: Shenzhou B1 Aluminum Foil Rubber & Plastic Thermal Insulated Material 9000 yuan/m³ 4: B2 Aluminum Foil Rubber & Plastic Thermal Insulated Material 550 yuan/m³. The above prices are from Internet and for your reference only.
Q:How does the aluminum foil's moisture resistivity and corrosion resistance?
It has good moisture resistivity and corrosion resistance, and it has thermal conductivity.it has good heat dissipation and UV resistance. The aluminum foil has good acid-resistance and electric conduction
Q:The thickness of aluminum foil.
there have aluminum even 0.010mm thick.
Q:What is the difference between the tin foil and aluminum foil?
Metal tin foil rolling production, aluminum foil is rolled production. Aluminum foil can not be rolled out in the past so thin, and when aluminum prices are not cheap, long-term champion in foil and now the rise of the aluminum foil, foil relatively cheap price, most of the aluminum foil packaging has been generally used in food packaging composite film is a combination of a printed layer, a barrier layer of aluminum, heat-sealing layer up.
Q:What causes the velocity effect of the aluminum foil?
1, the state of friction between the work rolls and the rolled material changes, with the increase of the rolling speed, into the amount of lubricating oil increases, so that the lubrication between the rolls and the rolled material changes. Reduced coefficient of friction, film thickening, followed by thinning the thickness of aluminum foil.
Q:When baking, what is the difference between aluminum foil and oil on paper?
The role of aluminum foil is heat and fast, even heat, so that the food will not be scorched, can prevent food grilled dirty oil tank at the same time, with aluminum foil wrapped food can be lost by reducing food and nutrition, water loss. So often when things oven with aluminum foil. But remember, the general will add lemon juice to enhance the flavor when baked, but citric acid will react with these metals, carcinogenic at high temperatures. So, you can add lemon juice after baking to eat.
Q:What's the highest temperature the aluminum foil and tin foil can resist?
Tin foil paper can resist high temperature. Aluminum foil paper or aluminum foil which is also called tin foil paper in Hong Kong, is a kind of thin sheet of less than 0.2mm in thickness processed by aluminum foil roller. It is mainly used to cook and contain food, or make some kinds of material for cleaning. Tens of and thousands of aluminum foil papers are used to preserve and package food, cosmetic products and chemical products. The applications of tin foil paper are as follows: 1. Prevent food from sticking baking tray; 2. Prevent food from sticking dirty stuff; 3. Convenient to clean baking tray; 4. Package the seasoning and stuffing to prevent them from falling into pieces when baking food; 5. Preserve water and keeping fresh.
Q:How to wash away the oil of aluminum foil products after being pressed?
The main problem is punching oil. You can use the punching oil with good volatile and lubrication performance. It can be drying under 140 degrees. It depends on whether your supplier is volunteer to buy it.
Q:Is tin foil paper the same as aluminum foil?
The difference between aluminum foil and tin foil, which are mainly used to wrap cigarette, is their thickness and control of high temperature resistance! “Tin foil” and “aluminum foil” are produced respectively by metal tin and aluminum through calendaring. Aluminum foil paper mainly use offset printing, for example, the disposable meal box on the plane which is made from aluminum foil and can be heated in micro-oven, some fried food and aluminum foil for hairdressing like the so called tin foil perm. Besides, aluminum foil is applicable to many fields like packaging, printing, medicine, electronic, food, and building.
Q:What's the difference between PET gold card paper and aluminum foil gold card paper film?
Aluminum foil gold card paper is used in base materail(paperboard) 1:It is easy to compare the appearance when you know the making process. Aluminum foil is made by pressing vaporized aluminum into slice and then print or thermoprint. Stick to PET thin film and shake it under ray of light. You will find that it is highly reflective. 2: Burning test: PET belongs to transparent plastic. PET gold card paper and aluminum foil have different appearence and making process. 3.PET gold card paper is printed on base materail(paperboard) previously,however, some printing layer don't have good reflective performance. PET thin film is very bright. When aluminum foil gold card paper burn to a cinder, the remained metal aluminum foil is thermoprinted. PET gold card paper can be burned into cinder totally. Aluminum foil is with metallic lustre.
