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 han dbill 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 patentsiled 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's the aluminum foil coiled material?
Product introduction: Metallic aluminum foil self-adhesive water-proof coiled material. Based on the high thermal conductivity coefficient of metal roof, the climate and season differences, we develop a whole set of water-proof and anti-corrosion system for colorful roofing. In the south, the coiled material can resist high temperature of 80°C without extension while in the north the coiled material can resist low temperature of -30°C with maximum extension of 1000%. Material may vary according to the regions or seasons. this material uses metallic aluminum foil as surface. Metallic aluminum foil is characterized by moisture resistance, air tightness, thermal insulation, ultraviolet ray resistance, wear-corrosion resistance, etc. Made of aging-resistant butyl rubber, the self-adhesion layer is strongly cohesive.
Q:What is aluminum foil tape?
Aluminum foil tape, the main use is its electromagnetic signal shielding performance, because it is widely used in PDA, notebook computers, LCD monitors and other electronic products where domestic electromagnetic shielding.
Q:How does tin foil act in the aluminum foil rock wool board?
Aluminum foil, also referred to as tin foil in Hongkong, is a rolled sheet whose thickness below 0.2mm processed by aluminum foil mill, mainly used for cooking, holding food or cleaning. Millions tons of aluminum foil is used for preserving and holding food, toiletry and chemical products.
Q:Why the printing ink dropped when etching the aluminum foil.
3.We can watching from these aspects: there are dust,silk screen,producing ink and other material.The reason for thin ink
Q:What kinds of package can use aluminum bag?

Q:How to produce aluminized paper?
Q:What's the difference between aluminum laminated films and aluminum foil film?
Aluminum laminated film is thin film like PP and PET steamed by vacuum and then coated with aluminum. Aluminum foil film is a film that is compounded by aluminum foil and plastic film. The alumimum coated layer is very thin with the thickness of 300-400 angstrom while the thickness of aluminum foil is about 0.01mm.
Q:Waterproof aluminum foil and PVC for cupboard, which is better?
Waterproof aluminum foil is usually used in cupboard while PVC is rarely used. PVC is usually used in commode. But it's better to use PVC for cupboard. Aluminum foil paper may easily soak and damage the cupboard due to its good waterproofness if water seeps into it, so it is better to paste a whole piece of waterproof aluminum foil paper without interface through which water may seep into the cupboard. Since aluminum foil paper is an additional layer on the moisture proof particle board, it is not moisture proof and waterproof enough and thus outdated. Whether PVC board can be used for cupboard depends on manufactures. Some just use it as an advertising gimmick while some use it for cupboard bottom. Surely the latter one is more durable. Cupboard is the place that contains most water and connects with sewer.
Q:The thickness of aluminum foil bag is 30 silks. Is it thick or thin?
It's very thick. What's more, 30 silks should be the thickness of two sides with each side shares 15 silks.
