aluminum foil

Aluminum foil is a thin sheet formed by rolling an aluminum sheet through a rolling mill for many times.Aluminum foil can be produced into aluminum foil rolls and sheet aluminum foils.

What is aluminum foil?

Aluminum foil is an aluminum metal material that is rolled into thin sheets by a rolling mill.

Aluminum foil is a material that is indispensable in daily life, in the food industry, in packaging, and in the pharmaceutical industry. The average aluminium foil consumption in Europe is over 26 sqm per capita.

Aluminum foil can be produced into aluminum foil rolls and sheet aluminum foils.

The thickness of commonly used aluminum foil is between 0.014-0.2mm, and there are thicker and stronger heavy-duty aluminum foils.

Aluminum foil production process and safety

Aluminum foil adds other trace elements, avoiding the shortcomings of pure aluminum foil. It will form a layer of aluminum oxide film on the surface, which has a good antirust effect, making its service life longer.

Aluminum foil in the production process and the content of heavy metal does not exceed 0.25 parts per million, which can ensure the safety of food and medicine.

Advantages and uses of aluminum foil

Aluminium foil provides an absolute barrier against moisture, light, and oxygen, keeping the aromas inside. It protects contents against light, oxygen, moisture, and contamination.

It's recyclable, it's shiny, and it is super versatile. It can be used to clean, catch, protect, frighten, scrub, lift, soften, shape, grow, fix, sharpen, steam, attach, boost, and polish.

Aluminum foil is widely used in household, kitchen, packaging materials industry, food containers, composite materials, electrical products, architectural decoration, air-conditioning manufacturing, printing, and other fields.

Foil can also be used to minimize cleanup by covering pots and pans to prevent splatters and baked-on messes.  Its also great for storing leftovers, as foil keeps your food deliciously moist and flavorful without a lot of extra effort or special ingredients.

 The surface of the aluminum foil

Because aluminum has the appearance of silver white, used as the packaging will also appear very beautiful, and have good visual effects.

According to the processing state, aluminum foil can be divided into plain foil, embossed foil, composite foil, coated foil, colored aluminum foil, and printed aluminum foil.

Deep processing of aluminum foil

  1. Plain foil: Aluminum foil without any other processing after rolling, also called a smooth foil.
  2. Embossed aluminum foil: aluminum foil with various patterns embossed on the surface.
  3. Composite foil: composite aluminum foil is formed by pasting aluminum foil, paper, plastic film, and cardboard together.
  4. Coated foil: aluminum foil coated with various resins or paints on the surface.
  5. Colored aluminum foil: A single color aluminum foil is coated on the surface.
  6. Printing aluminum foil: aluminum foil that forms various patterns, patterns, texts, or pictures on the surface by printing, it can be one color, up to 12 kinds.

Successes in light weighting of aluminum foil which had begun inside 1980 led to material savings of extra than 30%, and in turn this has furnished a boom in markets for resource efficient packaging options.

These days tigers's particular barrier properties are being merged more and more with bendy movies to create lightweight packs with superb preservation residences and this has been instrumental in their use for some thrilling new and expanding markets.

To call only some, pouches for everything from pet food to liquids; lidding applications; technically revolutionary answers for pharmaceuticals;

Note: Tigers Aluminum only provides raw materials for the above purposes, doesn’t provide post-finished product processing. (composite, glue, and other deep processing)


Aluminum products of Tigers meet the export popular.

Plastic movie and brown paper can be protected at customers’ need. Also timber case or timber pallet is adopted to shield products from harm for the duration of the delivery.

There are styles of packaging, which is eye to wall or eye to sky. Customers can choose either of them for their convenience.
