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:Hubcaps on aluminum rims?
There is no way you are ever going to be able to put a hubcap on an aluminum rim. If you want hubcaps on your car then you are going to have to buy steel rims. You can get used steel rims at the junkyard for $20 a piece, but they are a little rusty and don't look the best. You want to put hubcaps on, so this won't matter to you. Then you can get hubcaps at your local auto parts store for around $25-50 for a set of 4. You are looking at spending at least $120 for this. You could also go to the junkyard and look for the center caps you need or look on sites like OKorder
Q:Is my engine block aluminum?
My 94 Civic has aluminum block. So I suspect you also have aluminum block. === I want to know if I can use an aluminum polish on it. that assumes you first need to grind away the pitting (oxidation). Good luck....... P.S. My block has the same problem.
Q:Whether abandoned aluminum foil has recovery value?
Waste aluminum foil can be produced PAC. PAC is commonly used inorganic polymer flocculant. The sources for developing a wide range of raw materials to produce PAC of a foundation. In particular, the production process is varied, the development of a PAC for the convenience. International and domestic inorganic polymer flocculants has a larger scale production and application of theoretical research has also made in-depth development.

Q:How does laminated aluminum foil produced?
It's the salivate process. Pouring plastic melts into the aluminum foil when aluminum is reserving. Through multi-roll milling, a compound packing film with uniform thickness is produced.
Q:Is aluminum foil not made of aluminum?
We all know that aluminum is harmful to people's health. If you eat too much aluminum, it will hurt your brain, which can lead to memory loss, and you may also suffer from Alzheimer's disease, such as Alzheimer's disease.
Q:What is the Aluminum to Earth ratio?
Abundance of aluminum in the crust is estimated to be about 8.2% of crustal mass, however this cannot be measured directly (it is estimated from the abundance of metal in the oceans). As the crust represents about 3% of the mass of the earth, and there are no more than trace amounts of aluminum elsewhere in the earth (ie mantle and core), aluminum represents about 8% * 3% = 0.25% of the total mass of the earth. Thus, the ratio of Aluminum to Earth (by mass) is about 1:40000
Q:Are high-temperature aluminum foil?
The role of aluminum foil: The first is to prevent food sticking baking sheet; The second is to prevent food tainted dirt; The third is easy to brush the pan; The fourth is when there is some grilled food seasoning, stuffing and other fear dissipated with aluminum foil on the package; The fifth is to prevent moisture loss and keep fresh.
Q:What's the highest temperature the aluminum foil and tin foil can resist?
Tin foil paper can resist high temperature. Aluminum foil paper or aluminum foil which is also called tin foil paper in Hong Kong, is a kind of thin sheet of less than 0.2mm in thickness processed by aluminum foil roller. It is mainly used to cook and contain food, or make some kinds of material for cleaning. Tens of and thousands of aluminum foil papers are used to preserve and package food, cosmetic products and chemical products. The applications of tin foil paper are as follows: 1. Prevent food from sticking baking tray; 2. Prevent food from sticking dirty stuff; 3. Convenient to clean baking tray; 4. Package the seasoning and stuffing to prevent them from falling into pieces when baking food; 5. Preserve water and keeping fresh.
Q:What's the shiny alluminum foil?
Rubber resin ink industry generally adopts two kinds of rubber resin, namely, chlorinated rubber and thermopren. Natural rubber can be considered as shiny alluminum foil. Unmodified epoxy resin can be used as a light cover and aluminum foil coating.The epoxy resin can react with amine or reactive polyamide,organic acid,carbimide,phenol,aldehyde, melamine and formaldehyde resin to generate a soft film.
