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:aluminium PLEASE HELP?
Aluminium is an electropositive element, its valence shell has 3 electrons known as 3s2 3p1 so it has tendancy to give its 3 electrons to an electronegative ele emts sich as fluorine and chlorine which have both 7 electrons on the valence shell and so aluminium can give 3 electrons to 3 atms of chlorine or fluorine to complete their valence shell
Q:Is aluminum tape fire resistant?
Aluminum tape is mainly used for binding cold (hot) gas pipeline in cold (warm) gas engineering and water heater manufacturing.
Q:Aluminum water bottles or stainless steel bottles?
Aluminum forms a protective oxide layer that prevents it from oxidizing. It doesn't have to be anodized to protect it, the oxides form on it's own. A scratch just means more oxides will be produced. However, Aluminum is chemically reactive and there are many chemicals that will act as a catalyst to remove the oxide layer. In first year chemistry, you use mercury to see the aluminum corrode quickly. I would only consider an aluminum bottle if weight was a consideration as in hiking and then I would take care to only have water in it. Most of the metal water bottles and cups are steel, you would only find aluminum and titanium items in a specialty hiking store. Note that aluminum conducts heat, stainless steel is a poor conductor as metals go but even steel conducts heat. I use a wide brim stainless steel water bottle so it's easy to clean and some double walled steel coffee cups which are a pain to keep clean because of the finish.
Q:Is the disposable foil box good for the body? Not full of hot food!
Not too hot, okay, l aluminum element is not good for the body, so try to avoid repeated use as long as possible
Q:How is the multilayer-stacked aluminum waterproof roll?
Aluminum foil SBS waterproof roll is more effective when multilayer stacked. Aluminum foil SBS waterproof roll combines with SBS rubber modified asphalt with enhanced waterproof abilities through advanced manufacturing machines to produce a series of world-led SBS waterproof film, providing prolonged and reliable protection of architecture and civil engineering.
Q:What's the relationship among aluminum strip,aluminum foil and aluminium alloy strip?
Strictly speaking, all articles that made of aluminium alloy material can be called as aluminium products. It's a wide concept. Products that are called as aluminium alloy ingot in China are all considered as aluminium products. So, aluminium plate,aluminium strip, aluminium foil, constructional profiles and industry profiles are all different classifications. Aluminum foil is special aluminium plate, namely aluminium plate with special specification. Generally speaking, aluminium plate is products with sheet shape made of by aluminium alloy. When the thickness of aluminium plate is less than 1mm, it can be called as aluminium foil. Aluminium strip is a kind of the aluminium plate with a bigger proportion of length and breadth. When the proportion is bigger than 50, aluminium plate can be called as alumimium stripe. The bound among them isn't very clear.
Q:What are the advantages and disadvantages of aluminum baseball bats and wood bats?
Aluminum bats are more durable and cost effective since they don't break like wood. But, they can be dangerous as they have a higher exit speed. There is a controversy as to whether aluminum is more dangerous than wood. I believe aluminum is more dangerous after reading a study by some researchers at Brown University. So, I encourage my son to use wood and will encourage other boys to use wood when I coach this year (9-10 year olds). Even if it's not conclusive, I don't see why we should risk it.
Q:Why use aluminum foil packaging of cigarettes?
Eighties, as the inner liner of cigarette aluminum foil and aluminum foil rolling main Metallized, now, composite aluminum foil material has become a development potential, which has light, high barrier and gas, water corrosion resistance, when the temperature changes rapidly, without any material deformation.
Q:Did you know aluminum in deodorant cause breast cancer?
This is only a theory, but I avoided the aluminum based ANTI-PERSPERANTS anyway. The deoderants usually don't have aluminum, so I bought the products that just said deoderant. I used to use a woman's product without aluminum, now I cannot find women's products that only have deoderant. Some other men's products that DO NOT have anti-persperants/aluminum, are Speed Stick by Mennan,(various scents). Interesting that there is a theory that aluminum in ant-ipersperants, may cause breast cancer, and all of the women's deoderants now have aluminum in them. Wonder why that happened? Some company could make a fortune if they started manufacturing women's deoderants without the anti-persperant containing aluminum.
Q:Why the aluminum foil should have anneal craft
Anneal is to make the aluminum soft then its ductility becomes better.if not having anneal, the problem may appear unexpectedly like aluminum foil broken in the rolling process.therefore, the anneal must be conducted each time after rolling. this can help the aluminum rolling process goes plainly.
