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's the result after mistakenly eating the aluminium package when taking the pill?
If you have the digestive tract symptom like abdominal distention,I suggest you should go to hospital to have a check to see.Watch the excrement if you have no symptoms after mistakenly eating the aluminium package. If you have abdominal pain……
Q:What are the classification of aluminum foil?
Add status toThe aluminum foil can be divided into plain foil, embossed foil, composite foil, coated foil, colored aluminum foil and printed aluminum foil.Prime foil: rolled aluminum foil without any other processing, also called light foil.Embossing foil: aluminum foil embossed with various patterns on the surface.Composite foil: aluminum foil and paper, plastic film and cardboard are bonded together to form a composite aluminum foil.Coating foil: aluminium foil coated with various resins or lacquer on the surface.Color foil: the surface is coated with a single color aluminum foil. The aluminum foil printing: formed by printing on the surface of a variety of patterns, patterns and characters on the screen or the aluminum foil can be a color, up to a maximum of 12 colors.Soft aluminum foil can be further suppressed into 40 foil, used for high-end decoration.
Q:how much does aluminum oxide cost per pound?
Cost Of Aluminum Per Pound
Q:Does working in the aluminum foil companies harm the health?
Working in the production line of aluminum foil company is definitely harmful to health.
Q:Formula for Aluminum Oxide 10 points?
^2 or ^3 is not a charge, it's a subscript O is -2 and Al is +3 When you write the formula, then the charges are switched; therefore, O is -2 and Al is +3, so it is Al^2O^3.
Q:How to remove the adhesive sticker in aluminum foil bag?
Wipe it with alcohol or liquor with higher concentration.
Q:Carbon or Aluminum frames...?
Carbon is a lot lighter than aluminium and also much stiffer and harder. In terms of weight, carbon frames can be up to half the weight of aluminium frames. In terms of stiffness, aluminium frames can be relatively stiff, but it helps to have carbon forks if you are looking for stiff frames. As for durability carbon is much stronger than aluminium, however aluminium is still quite a durable material. As for price, however, aluminium frames with carbon forks are a great cheaper alternative to carbon frames and will serve you well.
Q:Aluminum usage. Chemistry help!?
There are a number of reasons of which the main one is cost. To extract aluminium from its ore is very expensive since it can only be done using electrolysis of the molten ore. This requires high temperatures and currents. In contrast iron can be extracted by smelting, simply heating the ore (to only a few hundred degrees) with carbon. The cheapest option that does the job safely will always be the one chosen. Another reason is that many alloys have properties similar to, or better than aluminium, again for less cost. Many titanium alloys for example are incredibly strong and can be made light using a carefully controlled composition.
Q:How does the aluminum foil bag recycle?
The paper box should be thrown to "container",and the aluminum foil bag should also be thrown to "container".the 20% of paper and the 5% of the plastic film should be disposed.the aluminum foil paper also need to be disposed together with the paper and plastic film.the rate of recycle disposal should be reached in the range of 40% to 50%.The PE part of aluminum foil is disposed by the incinerato. Then the disposed material should sent to waste plant.
Q:Aluminum foil foil uses what are the benefits?
Is like a film shaped metal foil paper for silver, silver white, is actually a foil, is used for machining aluminum foil mill into a sheet thickness below 0.2mm.
