What is Aluminium foil?
Aluminium is one of the most common elements found in earth's crust with no danger of world depletion. It is obtained from bauxite and hydrated oxide through electrolysis of oxide in molten sodium cryolite. Being covered with oxide coating, Aluminium is inactive to acid. Due to its good properties like- flexibility, ductility and more, Aluminium is widely used in several applications like- building, transport etc.
Aluminium foil is a very thin sheet of aluminium. However, its thickness may vary as per the requirement. Also tensile strength can be of various types as per the selection of temper and alloy. Due to its impermeability to gases and water, it's widely used in food packaging and other foremost insulation applications. It’s low weighted, non-toxic sheet which is recyclable and cost effective. Also it has properties of corrosion resistance.
Aluminium foil manufacturing process
Aluminium foil is produced from molten billet aluminium, by the continuously casting/rolling it through the mill rolls. The rolling is performed till the required thickness of foil is gained. In order to save the surface of foil from being marked, some lubrication is used during the rolling process. Beta radiations are used to know the intensities and hence maintaining the thickness of the foil/sheet.
After rolling, foil rolls are heated to make it dry and softer for many purposes like printing or coating. During this heating, lubricant oils are burned off. Thereafter, roll slitting and rewinding processes are followed.
Aluminium Foil Properties
Following are some other properties of aluminium foil.
Highly resistant to chemical effect like- organic solvents, greases etc.
Effective barrier against light, oil and gases. Its opacity helps in slowing down the deterioration which happens due to the exposure to light.
Heat and electric conductivity.
Highly durability and flexibility.
Formability and printability.
Good tensile strength.
Highly compatible with food, drug, cosmetic products.
Aluminium foil uses-application
Food and pharmaceutical packaging like- milk, drinks, bakery goods, capsules, drugs etc.
Used as heat exchanger- It is used in preventing the loss of moisture by wrapping the food before cooking it on grill.
Used in decoration like colored covers, ornaments, papers etc.
