Aluminum Foil

Aluminium foil is aluminum prepared in thin metal leaves with a thickness of less than 0.2mm (7.9 mils); thinner gauges down to 4 micrometers are also commonly used. Standard household foil is typically 0.016 mm (0.63 mils) thick, and heavy-duty household foil is typically 0.024 mm (0.94 mils). And the air conditioner foil can be thinner than 0.0047mm, and some food foil thinner than 0.002mm. The foil is pliable and can be readily bent or wrapped around objects. Thin foils are fragile and are sometimes laminated with other materials such as plastics or paper to make them stronger and more useful. It’s used industrially for a variety of purposes, including packing, insulation, and transportation. At home, people use aluminum foil for food storage, to cover baking surfaces, and to wrap foods, such as meats, to prevent them from losing moisture while cooking.

Regardless of your demand, CHAL Aluminium Corporation will provide specific high-quality aluminum foil products that suit your needs.  Whether it is aesthetic changes or excellent mechanical properties, we will provide you with precise aluminum foil!

How Does Aluminum Foil Made?

Aluminum foil is produced by rolling sheet ingots cast from molten billet aluminium, then re-rolling on sheet and foil rolling mills to the desired thickness, or by continuously casting and cold rolling. To maintain a constant thickness in aluminium foil production, beta radiation is passed through the foil to a sensor on the other side. If the intensity becomes too high, then the rollers adjust, increasing the thickness. If the intensities become too low and the foil has become too thick, the rollers apply more pressure, causing the foil to be made thinner. The rolls of aluminum foil are then slit on slitter rewinding machines into smaller rolls. Roll slitting and rewinding are essential parts of the finishing process.

How To Choose Aluminum Foil Grade?

When we choose aluminum, it is important to note that choosing the right alloy is directly dependent on the properties and the specific use scenario. Before you purchase aluminium grade, it is vital to pay attention to the flowing properties:

  • Tensile Strength
  • Thermal Conductivity
  • Weldability
  • Formability
  • Corrosion Resistance

Applications of Aluminum Foil

Aluminum foil can be used for a wide range of applications:

  • Automobile application
  • Heat transfer (fin material, weld tube material)
  • Packaging
  • Packaging
  • Insulation
  • Electromagnetic shielding
  • Cooking
  • Art and decoration
  • Geochemical sampling
  • Ribbon microphones

Advantages of Aluminum Foil

  • Aluminium foil has a shiny metallic luster, decorative.
  • Non-toxic, tasteless, odorless.
  • Relatively lightweight, the proportion is only one-third of iron, copper.
  • Full extension, thin, low weight per unit area.
  • Blackout good, reflective rate of 95%.
  • Protection and strong, so the package is less susceptible to bacteria, fungi, and insect infringement.
  • High and low-temperature stability, temperature -73 ~ 371 ℃ without deformation sizing.

Why Use Aluminum Foil?

Aluminum foil is prepared in thin sheets and used in a wide range of applications, from everyday household foil to heavy-duty, heat-resistant industrial foil rolls. Aluminium foil is extremely pliable and can be bent or wrapped around objects with ease. Typical finishes are available in pack rolled (one side bright/one side matte), two sides polished, and mill finish. Millions of tons of aluminum foil are used throughout the world to protect and package foods, cosmetics, and chemical products. Aluminum is a durable and easily used material, making it an ideal option for several industrial applications.

How Do I Know Which Aluminum Foil To Use?

  • Standard Aluminium Foil – Great for wrapping lighter individual items and covering containers for storage. Our aluminum foil is 0.0005 – 0.0007 thick.
  • Heavy Duty Aluminium Foil – Is used in cooking situations for lining pans and cooking sheets. Great for moderate heat. The CHAL heavy-duty foil is 0.0009 thick.
  • Extra Heavy Duty Aluminium Foil – Ideal for high heat situations and heavy wrapping situations. Great for lining grills and coming in direct contact with flames. To be used for wrapping heavy meats such as briskets and slabs of ribs. The CHAL extra heavy-duty foil is 0.0013 thick.

Is It Safe to Use Aluminum Foil?

Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals on earth. It’s naturally occurring in most foods, including fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, grains, and dairy products. Besides, some of the aluminum you eat comes from processed food additives, such as preservatives, coloring agents, anti-caking agents, and thickeners.

Regardless, the aluminum content of food and medication isn’t considered a problem, as only a tiny amount of the aluminum you ingest is absorbed. The rest is passed in your urine feces. Furthermore, in healthy people, absorbed aluminum is later excreted in your urine.

So, the small amount of aluminum you ingest daily is considered safe.
