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:Do you think an aluminum can would behave in the same manner as powdered aluminum?
No. Aluminum and many other substances that are impossible to ignite in solid form may ignite vigorously, even explosively, in the form of a powder suspended in air. Throw a match into a pile of ordinary flour, and the match just goes out. Get a room full of fine flour dust suspended in the air, add a spark and you have a powerful explosion. Same with aluminum.
Q:Which material is better for disposable lunch boxes,PP materrial or aluminum foil?
According to research, a very high recycling rates of aluminum, recycling of renewable up to 25 times the service life of up to two or three hundred years. In addition, the foil container takes only two to three years will be able to weathering, it does not cause damage to the soil.
Q:Is the grill foil poisonous?
During the period of baking, spread the lemon juice on the meat by texture, and drop a few drops of lemon juice before eating.
Q:What's the weight of non flammable glass cloth composite aluminum foil sleeve?
Sichuan High German for you to answer:The roof part adopts 40mm rock wool insulation outsourcing aluminum foil glass cloth belonging to pipe insulation, fiber products should apply in the installation of fixed brush oil, anti-corrosion and insulation engineering "in the branch" (Guan Ke) installation "and" glass cloth layer "aluminum protective layer" installation of the quota items.
Q:Find a weld and riveting machine to connect the two roll of aluminum together. the width of aluminum is 40-60cm,because the surface of aluminum has a layer of oxidation film,so...
I am a high voltage professional welder. I can't endure the current surge,even the spot welding. the surface oxidation film can be baked by the cutting knife,or polish by the abrader. no matter how big the welding rod is useless.The aluminum is too thin.
Q:Aluminum or cooper 1/0 thhn wire?
They have different Ampacity ratings. Also, Cu is more expensive than Al but carries more current (Amps). You need to know your load. You need to provide the Ampere rating of your panel's main breaker for an answer. 130' length implies a voltage drop calculation, Vd. The best I can do to help you is offr this likely unwelcomed advise: Just from the terminology used and nature of the question; I'd advise using an electrical contractor. Insurance likes that, and it's a life safety trade for a very good reason. Sorry if I dissapointed. Be safe!

Q:As for the aluminum foil reflecting coating of floor heating, which is better?
Aluminum foil reflecting coating is often used in floor heating. The following product accords with the carbon fiber filmed heater you lay.
Q:How to use aluminum foil sunshade board?
Sun shading panels are divided into colored and silver white surfaces, which should be silver faced outside so as to reduce the absorption of sunlight.
Q:Are there any differences between the foil used for lithium-ion batteries and the aluminum foil for supercapacitors?
A lithium battery is a battery, and a supercapacitor is a capacitor. Batteries and capacitors are two entirely different electronic components, and there is no comparability.
