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:Where to buy aluminum tape?
Aluminum tape is available in building materials market, packing material stores and advertising material stores. If not, kitchen ventilator store may be a choice.
Q:Aluminum corrosion resistance is mainly reflected in what areas?
The second is resistant to salt spray corrosion test conditions generally in the 35 oC, 3% salt spray environment requires 500 hours can not have spots of corrosion. Salt spray corrosion resistance is directly related to the heat transfer sheet length of life. In coastal areas, due to the high salt content in the air, so the heat transfer sheet of salt spray corrosion resistance have high requirements;
Q:how to remove aluminum-foil paper in the opening of plastic bucket?
Use hot air of hair dryer to blow it, use wet towel to wipe it, use water to steep it or use steel wire ball.
Q:How to judge whether the aluminum foil bags up to standard?
3, the production process - under certain process parameters, the adhesive applied to the surface of aluminum foil in the original filming, filming will directly affect the quality of heat seal strength of the product. The more important parameters such as coating speed. If the speed is too fast coating, drying temperature is too high, too fast solvent evaporation coating surface, resulting in residual film of the solvent, the film dries insufficient, this will affect the heat seal strength of the product.
Q:How to tear the aluminium paper package neatly by handy techniques
Use the rule to press the tin paper and use box cutter to cut the paper in right size.
Q:Is tin foil paper the same as aluminum foil paper?
The original tin foil paper is indeed made from tin, but as tin foil paper is harder than aluminum foil and easy to affect the food with a taste of tin, aluminum foil paper replaces tin foil paper in daily life after the reduction of aluminum price. However, as aluminum can affect the development of brain, aluminum foil at present is coated to avoid the liberation of aluminum.
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 kind of material does aluminum foil paper belong to?
Aluminum foil paper belongs to metal mixed material like alumina, which is a raw and auxiliary material for industry manufacture and mainly used for preventing package, articles for daily use and building.
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:What is the use of aluminum foil?
Aluminum foil in architectural applications is quite significant, paste it on the surface of the insulation material reaches the construction more convenient, clean and especially aesthetics reached a new height. But different types of aluminum foil effect varies greatly, such as fire protection and general is not a grade.
