Application of thick aluminium foil sheet in specifications

Aluminum (Al) is a silvery white, soft, ductile metal that is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon) and makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth’s crust. Aluminum is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals. The primary ore used in the production of aluminum metal is bauxite.

Aluminum is remarkable for its light weight, strength, durability and for its ability to resist corrosion, due to the formation of an extremely thin yet very strong layer of oxide film. Structural components made from aluminum and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry, transportation, building construction, and many other industries and applications.

Aluminum foil is widely used in packaging, insulation, and electromagnetic shielding. Aluminum sheet is used to manufacture vehicle bodies, home appliances, siding, cookware, and in thousands of industrial applications where a strong, light, easily formed material is needed.

Aluminium foil can provide complete insulation to light, oxygen, moisture and bacteria making it the perfect product to be used in food and medicine packaging. Aluminum foil has been used for decades for its barrier properties mainly within the flexible packaging industry. Other applications of aluminium foil include beverage, confectionary, personal care, health care and other industrial uses. Since, aluminium foils are mostly used in packaging applications, developed economies are the top consumers of foil.

Due to its versatility, ease of use and easy recyclability, aluminium foil turns out to become one of the most consumed aluminium products across the world.

The global aluminium foil packaging market is expected to see high growth over coming years. The major growth is expected in the developing markets owing to strong economic growth and increasing middle class with growing disposable income. The change in life style which includes changed food habits has led to increased demand for packaging. Growing demand for ready to eat confectionaries and pharmaceutical products is the major drivers for aluminium foils industry.

Why aluminium foil is used to wrap food

Aluminum foil in food packaging is more and more popular. After all, packaging is something to eat. Is the aluminium foil made of aluminum coil used to package foods harmful to the body?Why aluminium foil is used to wrap food?

1. Because aluminum has good thermal conductivity, aluminium foil wrap is commonly used in the packaging of food;

2, the finished aluminum foil processed with aluminum coil, commonly used in the food industry, professionally used in the kitchen to cook, contain food packaging, such as tin foil;

3, how to wrap food in aluminium foil

Aluminum foil paper is bright on one side, and the other side is gray and dumb. Under normal circumstances, aluminum foil for food can be wrapped on both sides of the food, HAOMEI Aluminum recommends that in order to improve the heat transfer effect, it is recommended to use a glossy surface to wrap;

4, aluminum foil packaging food made of aluminum coil, it can be safely eaten, generally heatable, storage-resistant.

Aluminium wrapping foil is a non-toxic and non-polluting packaging material. Its surface is very clean and hygienic. It has the functions of waterproofing, maintaining umami taste, anti-bacteria and anti-fouling. It can be in direct contact with food without any dangers that can endanger human health. This can be used with confidence.

How to transporting aluminium sheet and foil materials correctly

What should we pay attention to when transporting aluminium sheet and foil materials?

Aluminum coil foil can be packed in whole roll and divided into small rolls for transportation. It is better to liner paper core or aluminium core to prevent deformation of aluminium foil roll in the process of transportation. Aluminum sheet plate should pay attention to stability during loading and prevent collision of aluminium plate.

Aluminum sheet in foil are not corrosion-resistant. If they are rained during transportation, they may lead to uniform corrosion on the surface and affect the appearance in the use process. Therefore, aluminum sheet, aluminium strip and embossed aluminium sheet must be moisture-proof and rain-proof in the transportation process. Corrosive liquid should not be mixed with wet, oil products, chemical raw materials and other materials to avoid local corrosion. Aluminum sheet or aluminium scrap.

The loss in the transportation of aluminium sheet is nothing more than the following: bruising, water oxidation and scratching. The unreasonable loading is the main cause of the loss.

When loading aluminium sheets, we must fix them steadily, not on other goods, but on the bottom of the carriage; secondly, the aluminium sheets can be stacked in layers, but not too high, not more than 3-4 layers is appropriate; thirdly, other goods in the carriage should be reinforced to avoid bumping into the aluminium sheets on the way of driving; lastly, the aluminium sheets should be covered with waterproof cloth to avoid weather such as rain and snow. The reason causes the loss of aluminium sheet.

Aluminum plate hardness is generally low, so in the transport process also need to do a good job of anti-knock work, especially aluminum foil is more likely to occur, knock. During loading, unloading and transshipment, we must do a good job of protection, including the use of soft belt for hangers, and the use of angle guards in the places where contact with aluminium plates supplier, so as to ensure the safe arrival of goods.

What are the uses of aluminium foil

Aluminium foil is widely used in our life, such as airline food packaging, ordinary meat packaging, cigarette packaging and so on. Relevant experts divide it into more than 20 varieties according to its application characteristics. Due to the difference of economic development level in different countries, the consumption structure of aluminium foil also has a great gap. In developed countries of Europe and the United States, 70% of the total demand is for aluminum foil products for packaging. Aluminum foil is mainly used as raw and auxiliary materials for industrial manufacturing in China market, and packaging aluminum foil accounts for only 30% of the total domestic demand. Although the development of aluminum foil packaging is relatively late, the market is growing rapidly and the prospects are attracting attention.

Aluminum foil is quite remarkable in building application. It is more convenient, clean, especially beautiful when it is pasted on the surface of thermal insulation material. But the effect of different kinds of aluminium foil is very different, such as fire protection and ordinary is not a grade.

Comprehensive advantages of aluminum foil containers and food packing

The comprehensive advantages of aluminum foil containers and food packing:

1. aluminum foil material is non-toxic, quality and safety.

Aluminum foil is made of primary aluminium alloy and rolled through many processes. It has no harmful substances such as heavy metals. Therefore, aluminum foil can be safely contacted with food, and it will not accommodate or help bacteria grow. In most cases, aluminum foil does not react with food. On the market, a considerable number of plastic lunch boxes are manufactured from unknown raw materials, even fake and waste plastics, which makes it difficult to guarantee the quality and reliability.
