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 foil bags vacuum cooking?
Retort pouch is a composite plastic film bag can be heat-treated, it has two plastic containers and cans of boiling water resistant advantages. Food can be left intact in the bag, high temperature (usually in the 120 ~ 135 ℃) heating sterilization, remove and serve. After ten years of using proven, it is an ideal packaging container sales.
Q:How to calculate the weight and length if knowing the width of single layer of aluminum foil,density, diameter of outside roll and diameter of inner roll?
You can calculate the volume by the external diameter, inner diameter and width. the weight can be known by the density and volume, then the weight and length canbe known too.
Q:How is the aluminum foil used in the daily life?
5, medicine foil. This is very common, and I'm sure you had a sense of risk, even if not too cold, cold family members had it, then you certainly would have seen that piece of hard plastic plate pills, trying to come up with a pill, you have to put the medicine to tear the foil. In general, pharmaceutical packaging aluminum foil includes a liquid, easy-open injection type cap and medicinal PTP aluminum foil (sealed in hard plastic sealing material), non-toxic, corrosion-resistant, impermeable, heat resistance, moisture, light-blocking, autoclavable and so on. And PTP aluminum foil moisture-proof, easy to carry, safety and health in the international pharmaceutical industry is widely used.
Q:Is aluminum foil pure aluminum?
No, it is aluminum alloy. it is a kind of composite material. Aluminum foil is a kind of thermoprinting material made by calendaring aluminum into sheet. Since its thermoprinting effect is similar to that of silver foil, it is also called fake silver foil. As aluminum is soft and ductile with silvery luster, aluminum foil sheet can be made by mounting calendered aluminum sheet on the offset paper with sodium silicate, which can be used to print. But the color of aluminum foil will gradually become dark as it is easy to be oxidized and it fade due to friction and touching, so it is not applicable to the thermoprint of book covers for permanent preservation. No, because packaging bags made by aluminum, rubber and plastic containPE POV POF which can’t be resolved by soil.
Q:What is performance advantages of carbon-coated aluminum foil?
4. Protect collector, extend battery life. Such as: • prevent collector electrode corrosion, oxidation; • improve current collecting electrode surface tension and enhance the current collecting electrode coating performance and easy; • higher-cost alternative to replace the original etched foil or foil with standard thinner foil.
Q:How about the effect of aluminum foil thermal insulation roof?
The thermal insulation principle of aluminum foil film is the reflection of light. For better effect of thermal insulation, it is recommended to use professional thermal insulation material such as phenolic foam board, rock wool, EPS, XPS, etc. Suitable material should be chosen to satisfy different practical requirements. aluminum foil can be used in thermal insulation in high-temperature environment by taking advantage of good reflectivity of aluminum face. However, there is still little heat produced by the air convection between the aluminum faces. If absolute thermal insulation is required, multi-layer vacuum aluminum reflective thermal insulation structure can be used.
Q:What's the application of double-sided conductive aluminum tape?
1. Aluminum tape is rolled tape by compounding anti-sticking paper and quality aluminum foil which is coated with acrylic adhesive, thus featured by strong adhesion high temperature resistance and aging resistance. It is used for fixing evaporating pipes of refrigeration equipment such as air conditioner, freezer, etc. 2. By padding a layer of glass wool, it is used for thermal insulation of automobile. Generally speaking, it is the less reflective material used in air-conditioning refrigerator.
Q:Which sides do we use when conducting the electricity.
Millions of tons of aluminum foil paper is used worldwide for food package,toiletry and chemicals.most of the aluminum paper is bright for one side,and non-bright for the other side. the food can be wrapped for the two sides of paper.But I suggest that using the bright side of paper to wrap the food to improve the effect of heat conduction.the primitive tin paper is really made of tin and the tin paper is a little harder than aluminum foil. it may also bring tin smell to the food.after the aluminum price declining, the aluminum foil takes the place of tin paper in daily life.however, due to the aluminum is harmful to the brain, the present aluminum foil is painted with special layer in case of the release of aluminum.aluminum foil paper is usually used for holding food(aluminum foil paper plate) and wraping the bean sprouts and potato.
Q:What are the advantages of decorative aluminum foil?
Decorated by aluminum foil - plastic composite decorative material in the form of application, the use of aluminum foil good color, high reflectance properties of light and heat. Mainly used in construction, furniture and decorative part of gift box.
Q:what's the dying temperature of aluminum-foil paper?
It depends on walking speed.If faster, 180 degree,otherwise 120 degree.
