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 refers to the mechanical properties of aluminum foil?
Therefore, in practice, generally take the mechanical properties of intermediate values, and specific strength and ductility values ​​but also with the heat transfer sheet punching mold machining related. Punching processing sheet heat exchanger is divided into general type and stretching unstretched two. Stretched punching processing plastic mold foil requirements better, that higher elongation, the relative intensity values ​​may slightly lower; without drawing mold with higher strength aluminum foil, plastic belong secondary indicators.
Q:Why aluminum foil should be used in capacitor material of distributors?
The normal metal capacitor, especially CBB21/,DV/, impulse current of its turn-off voltage is very high. The capacitor material of distributors, if the distributors of ignitor can't bear such high impulse current. Using CBB28 or CBB8,in which the capacitor can bear a higher impulse current.The ratio of DT is higher.
Q:What the food grade aluminum-foil paper concretely mean?
You may rest assured. It's ok only if it conforms to the food grade. It doesn't matter if the material is soft. Concretely, the alloy is 8011. Thickness is about 0.015 or 0.02 and width is 300 or 450. I am the manufacturer of aluminum foil.
Q:How does aluminum foil tube specifications can be classified?
It is a kind of building materials,using thin steel as skeleton, packaging with aluminum foil.It can be used in the ventilation of fhigh-rise buildings like used in central air-conditioning. The other kind is made by stuffing glass wool between the two layers of alumnium foil on both sides to preserve the internal heat. So, it is also called heat preservation tube. It can be divided into 10 centimetres, 15 centimetres and 20 centimetres.
Q:What's the function of aluminum foil glass wool felt?
Thermal insulation performance is better
Q:How aluminum foil is uesd in pharmaceutical packaging?

Q:What's the application of aluminum foil?
1. Aluminum foil can be stuck on the walls of kitchen for anti-fouling and cleaning. 2. Aluminum foil can be used to keep food fresh.
Q:Is aluminum tape toxic?
Aluminum tape is nontoxic. It uses quality pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) and has various characteristics such as good stickiness, aging resistance and enhanced thermal insulation. Aluminum foil tape with all the seams of the aluminum foil composite paste, the seal and insulation nails puncture wounds repair.
Q:What is air conditioning aluminum foil?
Air conditioning is gradually to small, high-performance, high-life direction. The air-conditioning heat exchangers and thin sheet corresponding to the high strength direction. 1980 heat sheet thickness 0.15-0.2ram, and now only the thickness of between 0.09 to 0.15mm.
Q:How to use aluminum tape?
Taking aluminum foil as the base material and then coated with acrylic adhesive, aluminum tape is featured by high peel strength, excellent adhesion and oxidation resistance, corrosion resistance and flame resistance. Aluminum foil can be classified as common aluminum tape, conductive aluminum tape, high peel strength aluminum tape, reinforced aluminum tape, clip marine welding aluminum tape, aluminum tape for heater, etc., so the effects are different. For example, the commonly used aluminum tape is mainly used for binding cold (hot) gas pipeline in cold (warm) gas engineering and water heater manufacturing. Conductive aluminum tape is commonly used for eliminating electromagnetic interference (EMI), isolating electromagnetic wave to human body and avoiding unnecessary voltage or current that may influence its function in all kinds of transformers, mobile phone, computer, PDA, PDP, LCD displays, notebook computers, copiers and other electronic products in which electromagnetic shielding is required. Conductive aluminum foil has several types, like double-sided conductive aluminum foil and single-sided conductive aluminum foil. Conductive aluminum foil is used for binding tinfoil, copper foil, aluminum foil and so on.
