Household and food grade aluminium foil

  Household aluminium foil and food grade aluminium foil are not the same thing. Household aluminium foil rolls are definitely of food grade, but food grade rolls are not necessarily household ones. By household we mean kitchen or used at home directly.

Household and food grade aluminium foil

  Food grade aluminum foil is free from toxic elements like heavy metals, and its surface is clean without rolling oil after being annealed at high temperatures. It’s further divided into household and packaging aluminum foil. The former is made of 8011 aluminium alloy, with a thickness between 0.015mm and 0.02mm, and width from 300mm to 450mm. Household rolls spotted at shops are usually small, weighing only less than 2kg, packed in a cardboard box. These, however, are not what Haomei Aluminium supplies. We usually get in contact with clients from overseas who purchase rolls with a weight no less than 20kg and cut the rolls into parts of shorter length and small width. The cut parts are eventually rolled into smaller rolls and placed in cardboard boxes sent to super markets. There’s no need to worry about safety problem of 8011 aluminium foil for household use from China, for most of our products are exported to America and Europe.

  Packaging aluminum foil is the other important use of food grade aluminum foil. It’s used to package food. The world’s food industry is in an important period of vigorous development. The emergence of aluminum foil for food packaging has greatly improved the level of food processing and accelerated the modernization of people’s diet. There are two main applications of aluminum foil in food packaging: one is aluminum-plastic or aluminum paper composite packaging; the other is aluminum-plastic paper multilayer composite packaging. China’s food aluminum foil demand is about 30,000 tons / year. Haomei Aluminum is a large-scale manufacturer of aluminum foil raw materials for food packaging. The raw materials of aluminum foil for food packaging are mainly 1 series, 3 series and 8 series products, mainly including model numbers 1060, 1100, 3003, 8011, 8021 and so on. According to the needs of the packaged food, the softness and hardness of the alloy is selected, that is, the alloy state. The commonly used states are H14, H16, and H18.

Aluminium foil manufacturing process

  The aluminium foil manufacturing process consists of smelting, rough rolling, intermediate rolling and aluminum foil blank rolling.

  Smelting

  Aluminium ingots are placed into the furnace to get smelted, and aluminium liquid flows into the casting mill through the launder, during which the the refiner A1-Ti-B is added to form a continuous and uniform refining effect. Gases and slags get removed constantly and uniformly by the graphite rotor.

  Rough Rolling

  The aluminum liquid from the first step becomes a billet. The temperature of inflow water in the inner cavity should be kept between 20 and 23 degree centigrade, and that of outflow water between 28 to 32 degree centigrade. The static pressure of the aluminum melt between the rolls is controlled at 0.004-0.005mpa, so as to ensure that the crystal direction {100} of the material is more than 95%, the grain size is less than 5um, and the slab of 6.5-7.5mm is rolled.

aluminum foil manufacturing process

  Intermediate Rolling

  The above slabs are rolled again by cold rolling mill. When the thickness reaches 4.5mm, they are sent to the annealing furnace. After heating to 360 ℃ and holding for 2 hours, they are continuously heated to 580 ℃ and holding for 18 hours. Homogenization annealing is carried out to make the grain size uniform and consistent in direction. Then, the slabs are continuously cold rolled to 0.60mm in cold rolling mill and sent to annealing furnace again, heating to 460 ℃ and holding for 5 hours. When the they cool down to 400 ℃, have them heat preserved for 7 hours to conduct intermediate annealing, and then continue rolling them to 0.3mm thick.

  Aluminum Foil Blank Rolling

  This step uses the four roll irreversible foil rolling mill to roll the above 0.3mm aluminum foil blank into the finished aluminum foil product.

  The aluminium foil manufacturing process above is short and cost efficient. It enables you to produce ultra-thin aluminum foil of advanced level with a small investment scale. Compared with the hot rolling production process, the investment cost is reduced by two-thirds and the operation cost is reduced by more than half.

Haomei supplies aluminium foil 8011, 8021, 1-7-, 1060, 3003 and 8079 of all regular specifications. Welcome to contact us for more information!
