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.

Aluminium alloys with a wide range of properties are used in engineering structures. Alloy systems are classified by a number system (ANSI) or by names indicating their main alloying constituents (DIN and ISO).

The strength and durability of aluminium alloys vary widely, not only as a result of the components of the specific alloy, but also as a result of heat treatments and manufacturing processes. A lack of knowledge of these aspects has from time to time led to improperly designed structures and gained aluminium a bad reputation.

One important structural limitation of aluminium alloys is their fatigue strength. Unlike steels, aluminium alloys have no well-defined fatigue limit, meaning that fatigue failure eventually occurs, under even very small cyclic loadings. This implies that engineers must assess these loads and design for a fixed life rather than an infinite life.

Another important property of aluminium alloys is their sensitivity to heat. Workshop procedures involving heating are complicated by the fact that aluminium, unlike steel, melts without first glowing red. Forming operations where a blow torch is used therefore require some expertise, since no visual signs reveal how close the material is to melting. Aluminium alloys, like all structural alloys, also are subject to internal stresses following heating operations such as welding and casting. The problem with aluminium alloys in this regard is their low melting point, which make them more susceptible to distortions from thermally induced stress relief. Controlled stress relief can be done during manufacturing by heat-treating the parts in an oven, followed by gradual cooling—in effect annealing the stresses.

The low melting point of aluminium alloys has not precluded their use in rocketry; even for use in constructing combustion chambers where gases can reach 3500 K. The Agena upper stage engine used a regeneratively cooled aluminium design for some parts of the nozzle, including the thermally critical throat region.

Another alloy of some value is aluminium bronze (Cu-Al alloy).

Q:What is called soft canned?
Is a retort temperature polyester, aluminum foil, polyolefin film packaging made of composite materials for the packaging containers cooking bags and are sealed, sterilized and prepared for long-term preservation of packaged foods.
Q:what do aluminum 613 and 615 stand for?size? material or producing craft?
They are just the model numbers, no other meanings.
Q:What is carbon coated aluminum foil?
Original aluminum conductive properties of the metal itself is already good, but for the greater enhance its conductivity, people invented a carbon-coated aluminum foil. Carbon-coated aluminum foil is referring to the conductive graphite and carbon nano-coated tablets, uniform, delicate coated on aluminum foil, aluminum foil once put on such "nano coat", it will be able to collect micro-current of the active substance and greatly reduce negative resistance between the poles, the static conductivity to maximize the performance.
Q:What is the principle of thermal insulated aluminum tape?
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.
Q:How is the aluminum foil used in the daily life?
4, wine packaging. Many people know the wine, but many people do not know in the end the bottles on which part of the aluminum foil. Ah, yes, bottles aluminum foil on the bottle neck is the package goes in the mouth and wrinkled thin wine closure. Since aluminum has good ductility, tensile properties and easy printing features in recent years with the health standards of beer, wine foil seal gradually widely used in beer, wine and bottlenecks advanced soy sauce bottle sealed packaging.
Q:What equipments are needed to produce aluminum foil bag?
It depends on whether you directly use composite aluminum foil film or raw materials that aren't well composited. If you directly use composite aluminum foil film, you may need dividing and cutting machine and bag machine. If you use raw material,you may need printing press, compound machine,dividing and cutting machine and bag machine.
Q:Is aluminium foil ultraviolet-proof?
Yes, but this property is not very good. When aluminium foil is fixed with plastic and paper, its ultraviolet-proof property will improve greatly.
Q:What are the types of aluminum tape?
Type: x-369 Type: MZ-L33 Type: V.E/A-SU40 Aluminum foil tape with all the seams of the aluminum foil composite paste, the seal and insulation nails puncture wounds repair. It is the main and accessory material of refrigerator or freezer and also the necessary material for the sales department of thermal insulated material.
Q:Overview of aluminum foil
Q:What are the advantages of decorative aluminum foil?
Decorative foil insulation, sound insulation, fire protection and easy to clean, etc., but the appearance of luxury, easy processing, construction and installation speed. At present China's construction, home improvement industry has formed a decorative foil application boom.
