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:Rust on my aluminum shed?
Well, aluminum will not rust. the roof must be made of sheet metal. clean it with a wire brush and use rustolium paint. if you want to check if it,s aluminum just see if a magnet will stick to it. they will not stick to aluminum.
Q:Aluminum oxide questions?
aluminium(III) oxide is Al2O3 molar mass is 2xAl + 3XO = (2 x 27) + (3 x 16) = 102g/mol n(Al2O3) = 408/102 = 4 mol Aluminium oxide isn't molecular, so your last question doesn't make any sense. It is a giant ionic structure where the primitive cell contains two formula units of aluminium oxide (in other words the basic unit is Al4O6). So the number of primitive cells will be (4 x 6.02x10^23)/2 ie 1.204x10^24
Q:aluminum boat repair?
We repair boats on occasion at my shop. We use an aluminum patch and Tig weld it in. That's really the only correct way to repair it . Its also a patch the will last a long time. The reason we use a patch is because most of the holes that get in these boats are a gradual wearing on the aluminum from running them up on the banks of lakes and rivers.
Q:Chemistry on limiting reactant and yield with aluminum and oxygen?
The first step in all of these problems, is to make sure that your chemical equation is balanced, because this will tell you the ratio of the compounds you're comparing. Now, you know that your limiting reagent is going to be the deciding factor for how much product you produce. You can see that you have a ratio of 4:3:2, For every 4 parts Al you use 3 parts O2 to make 2 parts Al2O3, so, using this ratio, which of your reactants is the limiting reactant? Let's look at Aluminum, the ratio of Al to Al2O3 is 4:2, so, we have a ratio of 1.4 moles of Al / (x) moles of Al2O3 = 4/2 (x) moles of Al2O3 = 1.4/2 (x) moles of Al2O3 = 0.7 With 1.4 moles of Al, you'll make 0.7 moles of Al2O3 Now let's look at Oxygen, the ratio of O to Al2O3 is 3:2, so, we have a ratio of 1.35 moles of O / (x) moles of Al2O3 = 3/2 (x) moles of Al2O3 = 1.35/1.5 (x) moles of Al2O3 = 0.9 With 1.35 Moles of O, you'll make 0.9 moles of Al2O3 NOW, this is where the limiting reagent comes into play again! You can only make as much of your product as your limiting reagent will allow! So while that 1.35 moles of oxygen is willing to make up to 0.9 moles of product, your 1.4 moles of Aluminum can only make 0.7 moles when it's giving everything it's got. SO.... your limiting reagent here is Aluminum, and when you react 1.4 moles of Al with 1.35 moles of O, you form 0.7 moles of Aluminum Oxide and have left over Oxygen (because not all of it is used up!)
Q:Is having lots of aluminum wiring in a 1965 house bad?
No real dangers, aluminium is a better conductor than copper and therefore should be safer. Copper is used more often because it's cheaper and easier to work with. Aluminium will oxidise more then copper but that shouldn't affect mechanical connections too much. If you look at the connections in the circuit box itself, they're usually aluminium plated.
Q:Aluminium daily maintenance need to pay attention to what matters?
5.aluminum during storage, you can put on the shelf small size, large size aluminum slab storage method is best to use the skids spaced from the ground at the bottom, keeping the distance to the ground is greater than 10CM; large-sized materials stacked together , it is recommended that you use the best materials up and down wood / wood and other materials spaced.
Q:Can the foil foil on the baking pan be reused? 20
Tolerable。 Ha ha, as long as you can use, you can reuse. You can contact me if necessary.
Q:Why would you put an aluminum foil in the oven?Just this?
1. anti greasy and cleanAfter use, as long as the foil removed, let the cleaning work can be more easily accomplished. Similarly, also can be spread on the touch plate cut greasy food, so as not to touch plate with oil or hard to clean. Before cooking, the foil attached to the gas stove in front of the wall, so as to avoid the oil spray to difficult to remove.
Q:Where do you buy thin aluminum?
I to see what they had available and as I suspected, they carry a wide variety of thicknesses and widths of aluminum that should be perfect for what you want (they have pretty much everything that anyone would ever need). With shipping, though, it may be cost prohibitive, and I'm not sure what length you're looking for, or where you live, but you might be able to find what you're looking for at a local metal retailer. You can also check with local fabricators that may have scrap pieces you can buy for less than you'd pay with shipping from McMaster. Aluminum is really easy to work with, though it does tend to clog the teeth of saw blades and files if not properly lubricated.
Q:Does reflective coating of aluminum-foil paper can be pasted to the glass?
Reflective coating of pure aluminum foil has a low heat conductivity coefficient,high heat transfer rate. Staple bolt is easily to be penetrated. Staple bolt penetrates reflrctive coating and rapidly recover after meeting high temperature.The heat energy of place where staple bolt penetrates can reflect the roof,making the construction easier and more efficient. The drape is easily to be flattened. Crease lines can influence the effect.Using reflective coating of common mirror,adopting PAP aluminum-plastic slice and staple bolt easily to be penetrated
