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 need to use aluminum foil?
1.Flexible package. Flexible package is a bag container made from composite packaging material. It is the ideal packaging material of modern commercial which is not only has functions of moisture-proof and fresh-keeping but also can be printed on many patterns and words. With improvement of people’s live standard, there is still a great space for the development of aluminum foil for flexible package. 2.Medicine foil. Aluminum foil for medicine package mainly includes the easy open bottle cap of water aqua and injection as well as medical PTP aluminum foil. Since PTP aluminum foil is moisture-proof, convenient to carry, safe and health, it is widely applicable to the international medicine industry. 3.Composite aluminum foil for automobile.
Q:What's the highest temperature of aluminum foil paper?
If not considering the open fire, it is no problem that the temperature of using the electric oven exceeding 300 degree and the producing process has anneal process.the temperature has exceeded 400 degree.
Q:What's the relationship among aluminum strip,aluminum foil and aluminium alloy strip?
Strictly speaking, all articles that made of aluminium alloy material can be called as aluminium products. It's a wide concept. Products that are called as aluminium alloy ingot in China are all considered as aluminium products. So, aluminium plate,aluminium strip, aluminium foil, constructional profiles and industry profiles are all different classifications. Aluminum foil is special aluminium plate, namely aluminium plate with special specification. Generally speaking, aluminium plate is products with sheet shape made of by aluminium alloy. When the thickness of aluminium plate is less than 1mm, it can be called as aluminium foil. Aluminium strip is a kind of the aluminium plate with a bigger proportion of length and breadth. When the proportion is bigger than 50, aluminium plate can be called as alumimium stripe. The bound among them isn't very clear.
Q:Are the aluminum foil bag and the aluminum plastic composite bag the same thing?
They are different. the aluminum foil bag (antistatic bag,aluminum foil package bag) the facade of aluminum foil bag: transparent and silver white,barrier property,heat sealability,light prevention,heat resistance, cold resistance,frgarance holding;poisonousless,softness,ect.the stcucture of the product:PET/AL/PET/PE. the aluminum plastic composite bag has many advantages:low cost, beautiful prints;anti-static,ultraviolet-proof,moistureproof,oxygen partition,lightproof,cold-resistance,printing oil resistance,heat resistance,freshness preservetion and leakproofness.
Q:What is the value of scrap aluminum recycling?
Waste aluminum foil wide range of sources, mainly from cigarettes, food and pharmaceutical packaging, the main ingredient is aluminum, with high economic and social value of recycling. The experimental study, the use of waste aluminum foil PAC optimal conditions and scope, has a certain practical significance in improving resource utilization, environmental protection and other aspects.
Q:What's the application field of aluminum foil?
Aluminum foil can be used to roast fish and meet, pack dim sum and snacks, reserve leftovers, decorate items and clean.
Q:What is the principle of thermal insulated aluminum tape?
The principle of thermal insulated aluminum tape is to process various metals like aluminum, gold, copper and silver into multi-layer densely and highly thermal-insulated metal film by utilizing vacuum metallization and magnetron sputtering. When the outer-shell electron (free electron) in the metal material which is generally not bound by atomic nucleus is exposed to light waves, the electric field allows it to absorb the light energy and thus produces vibration at the same frequency as light. Then the vibration produces the light at the same frequency as the original light, which is known as the reflection of light. The higher perveance of metal, the lower degree of penetration and the higher reflection. The metal layers will reflect back the heat source in the sun including infrared ray, ultraviolet ray and visible light selectionally and then re-release after the colors of metal film absorb the solar radiation and finally part of heat can be removed as the outdoor air flows, thus effectively insulating the heat.
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:What is the thermal insulation principle of aluminum tape?
Heat is transferred by convection, conduction and radiation. Aluminum tape often is used for wrapping the thermal insulation layer and its silver surface can block heat radiation. Since aluminum is a good conductor of heat, wrapping the tape with aluminum foil does quicken the heat loss instead of heat preservation. Therefore, it's better to wrap with heat-insulated cotton before wrapping with aluminum foil. Actually the thermal insulation cotton preserves heat rather than the aluminum foil which serves as a conductor to outside temperature to protect the inside temperature. It is featured by thermal insulation, waterproofness and corrosion resistance. Due to its extremely low absorption coefficient solar radiation, it can isolate from most of the heat transfer. Introduction to several major products of aluminum foil.
Q:What refers to the mechanical properties of aluminum foil?
The factors affecting the mechanical properties of the aluminum foil more processes are chemical composition and processing of the foil. On the strength and ductility for the aluminum foil by adjusting the chemical composition or change the machining process and parameters, or the strength of the plastic material in a certain range while maintaining a constant so that the other party has changed. That is, the value can be changed with the strength and ductility of aluminum foil limited by adjusting the chemical composition and processing technology.
