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 are chemical and physical properties of Aluminum, Iron, and Chromium ?
This Site Might Help You. RE: What are chemical and physical properties of Aluminum, Iron, and Chromium ? Hey , I have a science culminating/isu to finish and I'm having a little trouble on the Chemistry part. Can anyone help me find at least 4 Physical and Chemical Properties of: 1. Aluminum 2. Iron 3. Chromium Can you also cite where you got the information from? Thanks so much in...
Q:Why use aluminum foil packaging of cigarettes?
Foreign manufacturers in the development of new cigarettes, Backing aspect is a lot of work, BAT also use vacuum aluminum as its brand-name cigarette packet lined packaging material, according to statistics, at present, 70% of British cigarettes, 50 % of German cigarettes are cigarettes made with aluminum inner liner. Armenian producers in order to increase protection of the product, the use of duplex printing and foil baking sheet liner, an Indonesian company has introduce a metallised material to replace the original multi-layer composite aluminum foil paper, aluminum foil, its thickness is only 0.04 m.
Q:There are some aluminum foil, some stainless steel and ABS plastic under the sink That would be a little better? Twenty
What do you think of these 3 materials? Actually, lie on the foil. It's OK to wrap it. The foil should be wrapped on the side panel. It only covers the floor. It looks nice and waterproof,It's better to have the roof18 of the board is relatively good, single also look at the brand, personal recommendation true! Lushuihe, as to how to tell your own eyesIs the price of quartz stone? I have a false quartz stone in a word! You can't tell the difference by yourself, but you can't tell a word in half
Q:Why doesn't aluminium rust?
You are confusing aluminum with aluminum oxide. The first is a metallic element and the second is a compound of aluminum and oxygen. Aluminum doesn't rust, as that term is reserved for ferrous metals, ie containing iron. Aluminum will oxidize but not rust.
Q:Car sunshade and black aluminum foil which is good, and the aluminum foil is white or cartoon, mainly considering the shading effect
The car shade is made of aluminum foil. The best color is white, the effect is good, if you like the cartoon, choose light color.Aluminum foil in general, general "light plate" type and pattern type, size is generally 60*130cm, suitable for most small cars. The aluminum foil heat shield with suction cup is easy to use. After expansion, it can be sucked in front windshield or inside rear window by suction cup.In the less hot season, colour patterns can be placed out of the room. If the weather is very hot, the foil can be turned out to ensure the reflection of sunlight. In the purchase before the sun block, it is best to choose to take a sucker, the material should be more hard texture. "Light plate" or "too cheap" front sun block is not enough itself, it is easy to fall, so do not seek cheap. In general, there are brands of front sun block, packaging materials used better, there are special placement of suction cups, sucker is not easily squeezed. Worse brands, ten to one, a sucker is squeezed, and the remedy is to put it in boiling water for a while.If the front window of the car is relatively wide, the front sun block can not be shielded, you can choose two pairs, this kind of sun block, like those Jeep type, are covered. Some vehicles have no sun shade at the top of the front window and attach a windshield sticker. The utility model can not only beautify the vehicle, but also play the function of partial shading.
Q:Can aluminum foil be used in the microwave?
Microwave oven microwave frequency radio waves generated belong, usually around 2500MHz. The microwave band has the following characteristics: 1) food and water can be absorbed, the molecule strenuous exercise, heat is generated. 2) can not be absorbed by plastics, ceramics and glass. 3) be under the influence of a conductive metal in a microwave field.
Q:What are the brands of aluminum foil coiled material?
Waterproof coiled material refers to volumed waterproof material made of asphalt, rubber and other organic material, also known as asphalt felt. It has excellent waterproofness and good flexibility. Basic Introduction: Waterproof coil is a flexible plate waterproof material.
Q:The difference between ground heating reinforced aluminum foil paper and non reinforced
There is no big difference between the use of aluminum foil and kraft paper. In fact, there is no need to warm it is difficult for the company, and not reinforced aluminum foil purchase price is the same as the heating effect of the use of your main look.
Q:aluminum foil in the toaster oven?
Do they make a small Silpat that size?? I have seen the silicone you cut to fit, maybe that could work. Or parchment paper would be the disposable way to go...
Q:Aluminum foil tape or copper foil tape, which is better at shielding?
I should say they have equal shielding abilities. But as aluminum is more likely to oxidize than copper and not easy to be soldered, copper foil tape is preferred in most of the cases. Electromagnetic shield means using elements made of conductive or ferromagnetic materials to screen at the end of stator core of a large turbo-generator, reducing additional loss and local heating in parts caused by flux leakage at the end of stator winding. In terms of communication, screening is to segregate two spaces to prevent electric field, magnetic field, and electromagnetic wave of one area from reacting to or radiating the other one. To be detailed, screening will encompass interference source that influences components, circuit, assembling, cable or the overall system.
