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:How to remove words on aluminium foil used in medicine package? Is there any easy way?
Words printed on it is organic matter and can be corroded by concentrated sulfuric acid. Since aluminium plate is protected by oxidation film in its appearance, it's ok to do so. But you should be careful when you operate for plastic plate may also be corroded. Only teflon and high density polyethylene are anti-corrosion, but they are with higher price and therefore won't be used in normal situation.
Q:Why the wall insulation aluminum foil is put in the warm side
Putting in the warm side can save the energy and equal to the temperature preservation ratio: In winter,the temperature preservation aluminium is in the interior side of wall in the north.when the temperature of wall rises, the temperature of room is comfortable and the energy consumption is reducing. If putting in the exterior side of wall, the temperature in the room can be risen only after the wall temperature being rising, and the energy consumption is increasing.
Q:It is an alloy of aluminum foil?
Or thickness after rolling to form a sheet of aluminum in aluminum foil is 0.2mm or less. Aluminum is added to the aluminum other metals or non-metallic material, so that the metal strength.
Q:How to calculate each square meter of aluminum foil?
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:Whether aluminum foil can be used to heat the food?
There is also a hair stylist with aluminum foil for the guests perm. It was also absorb oil soup with aluminum foil. Aluminium foil is also widely used in the isolation layer, heat exchange, and is used as an electrical conductor.
Q:Why some board mounted pills are covered with a layer of aluminum foil?
Tropical aluminum structure is NY25 / Alu60 / VC, super good barrier properties, but can also punched out in the above pattern, further play publicity. However, once this package apart, tropical aluminum barrier function is not, so to finish as soon as possible.
Q:Aluminum foil used for barbecue will be poisonous?
Need to be reminded that if foil wrapped barbecue meat, do not pour lemon juice on the meat, because the metal foil belong substance in contact with acidic substances, high temperatures would produce a certain chemical reaction to produce harmful to human carcinogenicity substance.
Q:Aluminum foil insulation material
Aluminum foil usually compound with sound insulation cotton and sound insulation rybber. It is a thermoprinting material by calendering aluminum into a plate. Its thermoprinting effect is similar to that of silver coil thermoprinting, thus it is alos called fake silver coil. Because of its softness, malleability and silver gloss, teh calendered plate can be processed into a alumnium foil plate by pasting something like solidium silicate on the offset paper and also can be printed.However, since the color of alumnium foil may dark as a result of oxidation or fade due to friction or touching, thus it is not suitable for thermoprinting long-preserved book cover.
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
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.
