Application of aluminum foil
Aluminum foil is a thin sheet of aluminum that is typically less than 0.2mm thick. It is commonly used for its heat-reflective and barrier properties, which make it an ideal material for food packaging, insulation, and other applications.
Some common uses of aluminum foil include wrapping food items, lining baking sheets, and disposable foil containers and as a heat insulator for homes and commercial buildings, and pharmaceutical packaging.
Aluminum foil can be produced into aluminum foil rolls and sheet aluminum foils. It is a material that is indispensable in daily life, The average aluminium foil consumption in Europe is over 26 sqm per capita.
The thickness of commonly used aluminum foil is between 0.014-0.2mm, and there are thicker and stronger heavy-duty aluminum foils.
There are several different alloys of aluminum used to produce foil, with the most common being 1235 O, 8011 O,8011 H22, 8011 H24,3004 O,3004 H24,8021 O, and 8079 O. aluminum foil is widely used in various industries due to its lightweight, flexibility, and durability.
The alloy models that can be used for rolling into aluminum foil are:
1235 aluminum foil has high purity and good electrical conductivity, so it is often used as tape foil and battery foil , widely used in refrigerators, air conditioning, automobiles, petrochemicals, Bridges, hotels, electronics and other industries.
3003 aluminum foil is mainly used in the electronics industry. It can used for aluminum electrolytic capacitors,viation meal boxes, and aluminum honeycomb core.as the raw material of electronic foil, 3003 aluminum foil will have a good market prospect. It has good formability.
3004 aluminum foil can be made into different shapes of dining boxes, divided into two kinds of wrinkle-free and wrinkle-free. It can be used for many kinds of food packaging, and other materials composite, and after printing, it is favored by the majority of food production industry. It Also can be used for lunch box materials, household aluminum foil.
8006 aluminum foil is often used in aviation meal box materials, food flexible packaging foils and medicinal foils, which have great advantages.
8011 aluminum foil used for bottle cap materials, drug packaging, food packaging, tape foil, aluminum foil for electronic cables, honeycomb foil, etc.
8021 aluminum foil is often used in the field of electronic products, such as soft lithium battery, polymer lithium battery and other types of lithium battery, aluminum foil take-out lunch boxes, baking containers, etc.it is also widely used in the back of drug capsules
8079 aluminum foil used for food packaging, drug packaging and meal box materials.
Aluminum foil was first produced in the early 20th century, with the first plant established in Switzerland in 1910. Workers hammer the aluminum sheet until it is thin enough, and the aluminum foil at this time is used to make the barrier layer of the package.（Source:https://www.alufoil.org/history/)
In the 1920s, a process called rolling was introduced, which made the production of aluminum foil faster and more efficient.
Today, aluminum foil is widely used in various industries and can be found in homes, restaurants, hospitals, and many other settings.
Aluminum foil is a thin sheet of aluminum that is typically less than 0.2mm thick. It comes in different forms, including plain, embossed, and coated, to suit various applications.
Aluminum foil comes in a range of thicknesses, typically ranging from 0.006mm to 0.2mm. The most commonly used thickness for household foil is between 0.01mm and 0.02mm. The weight of the foil depends on its dimensions, but it is very lightweight.
Aluminum foil has a wide range of uses and functions. It is commonly used for food packaging, insulation, and as a barrier layer in various applications. It can also be used for cooking, baking, and grilling as a heat reflector or insulator.
Aluminum foil is made from pure aluminum or aluminum alloys, which are melted, rolled, and then cold-rolled to reduce the thickness to the desired level. The foil may be annealed to soften it and make it more flexible, and it can be embossed or coated to add texture and improve its performance in specific applications.
Aluminum foil is widely used in the food packaging industry, such as wrapping food items, sealing containers, and making disposable food trays.
Aluminum foil is commonly used for packaging pills, tablets, capsules, and other forms of medication. Because of its light, moisture and air barrier properties，which helps to protect the quality and stability of the drugs.
Aluminum foil is commonly used as insulation material in the construction industry.
Aluminum foil is used in the automotive industry for soundproofing and heat insulation in vehicles. It helps to reduce noise and vibration.
Aluminum foil is used in electrical and electronic applications, such as capacitors, transformers, and circuit boards. Its high electrical conductivity and low weight make it an ideal choice for these applications.
Aluminum foil is a popular material for art and craft projects. It can be easily molded into different shapes and sizes, and provides a reflective surface that can be used for a variety of creative projects.
Aluminum foil is a versatile material that can be used in many different industries and applications due to its unique properties and benefits.

Cooking and baking: Aluminum foil can be used to wrap food items and to line baking sheets and pans. When using aluminum foil for cooking or baking, make sure to use the shiny side of the foil facing inwards, as this is the side that reflects heat best.
Food packaging: Aluminum foil can be used for wrapping food items, sealing containers, and making disposable food trays. However, avoid using aluminum foil in direct contact with acidic or salty foods, as it can react with these substances and potentially contaminate the food.
Store aluminum foil in a cool, dry place away from moisture and heat sources to prevent it from becoming damaged or deteriorating.
Keep aluminum foil away from sharp objects or edges, as it can tear or puncture easily.
Avoid stacking heavy items on top of aluminum foil, as this can crush or deform the 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.
There are several international standards related to aluminum foil, including:
These standards cover various aspects of aluminum foil, including its composition, physical properties, dimensions, and performance characteristics.
