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:Cleaning Aluminum Tanks?
I doubt it, but I'm primarily chiming in to support the dry ice suggestion. Before you create any sparks around fuel tanks, put dry ice in 'em. An exploding empty fuel tank can easily kill you. I suspect that you'll have to go with a bladder at the very least. Maybe you wanna hire a pro for this one.
Q:Black Aluminum MacBook in 2008?
I have a macbook pro, its aluminum, silver, and freakin awesome. The Black Macbook is made of Polycarbonate, more commonly known as Lexan, the material used in Nalgene bottles and some of their lab equipment. It is very durable, and highly scratch resistant. I doubt they would make a black aluminum macbook. I suggest buy the macbook now. If you are always waiting for the next piece of technology to come along, you will be waiting forever.
Q:Is Titanium ,volume per volume lighter than aluminum?
The advantage of titanium is that it is stronger than some steels and is almost as light as aluminum.
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:Between Aluminum foil fibre cloth tape and pure aluminum foil tape which one is good?
Considering the base material strength, the one with a reinforcing material (clip) is of course good. But considering thermal efficiency or electric fields, including construction of the above, it is not suitable. In the field of home appliance, aluminum foil is widely used. In the decoration, it is used in mending the wall.
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:The thickness of the aluminum foil bag 30 wire is thick and thin
0.3mm is not thick yet? The thickness is too thick. The composite aluminum foil is made of aluminium 0.012mm.
Q:Can I make a skateboard grind rail out of aluminum?
Depends how heavy the aluminum is, if its a think peaice of tubing then it should be ok about 1/16 or 1/8 of an inch think is plenty the only thing is aluminum gets nicks in it easily just so you know most trucks are made of aluminum, I use either wood or steel, steal works good if you can weld but more than likly you can't so use wood and wax it up to make it slick, pvc pipe works also and is cheap.
Q:electric arc furnace electrode arm made by aluminum, how to repair?
Your question is more of a question than a question. Exactly what are you trying to ask?? It has been 35 years sense I finished welding school and I can probably help you but I need to know more about what you are asking, but I will take a shot in the dark at it any way. To start with, it sounds like you are trying to weld cast aluminum and this process may or may not work. It is according to the alloy. But here goes a try. 1: Grind a nice V down on both parts where they need to be joined together at. Anywhere it needs a bead of weld at. 2: Set you up a jig of some sort, even if it is bricks or something so you can put the two pieces together the way they need to fit, very fast. 3: Put both pieces in the oven and turn on to 400 degrees. 4: Wait until it reaches 400 degrees and wait 15 minutes longer. 5; This is the part you need to haul tail on, OK. Get them to the jig, set them up, weld them ASAP and then get them back in the oven ASAP. 6: Turn the oven down 50 degrees, every 10 minutes until you get to warm and then after 10 minutes turn oven off and allow to finish cooling completely. Aluminum expands and contracts rapidly. When you weld cold aluminum the weld is hot and there is too much af a heat sink in the metal so it cracks as you are welding it. I took a welding test years ago where we had to weld inconeal to stainless steel and I was the first one out of fourty some people that passed the test and they were welding as good as I was. Some better, but I was letting mine cool more than they were between passes. Cast aluminum is just the opposite. Cast Iron is the same way.
Q:What glue does the aluminium foil glass cloth adhere to the heat preservation cotton board?
HDPE insulated cotton can be glued with HY-T160 glue. This glue is specially used for bonding polyethylene PE material. Baidu search for one glue.
