Addtime: 2020-04-06 09:32:04

Aluminum foils (often incorrectly referred to as tin foil) is aluminum made from thin metal blades, less than 0.2 mm (7.9 mils) thick; usually thinner thicknesses (down to 6 microns (0.24 mils) can also be used. s is flexible and can easily bend or around surrounding objects. Thin foils are fragile and sometimes laminated to other materials, such as plastic or paper, to make them more useful. In the mid-20th century, aluminum foil replaced tin foil.

Aluminum foils is not tin foil

Aluminum foils made of tin foil are cheaper on the market than aluminum foils. Tin foil was sold commercially from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. The term "tin foil" is still the newer aluminum foil term in English. But tin foil and aluminum foils are completely different. Tin foil is produced by rolling metal tin, aluminum foils is produced by rolling aluminum metal; aluminum foils is generally brushed on paper, which is harder and smoother. Tin foil generally can be layered independently, relatively soft and rough; tin foil is less ductile than aluminum foil, and tends to make the food wrapped in it have a slight tin smell. Tinfoil has been replaced by aluminum and other materials used to wrap food.

Common uses of aluminum foils

1. Aluminum foil for packaging because it has high ductility, which means that it can be easily converted into thin sheets and folded, rolled up or packed. Aluminum foils can completely block light and oxygen (which cause fats to oxidise or become rancid), odours and flavours, moistness, and germs, so they can be widely used in food and pharmaceutical packaging, including long-life packaging (sterile) packaging. For drinks and dairy products, it can be stored without refrigeration. Aluminum foil containers and trays are used for scones and packaged takeaway meals, ready snacks and long-life pet food.
2. Aluminum foils is widely used for radiation shielding (barrier and reflectivity). We call it aluminum foil for electronic label; heat exchanger (heat conduction), and cable lining (barrier and conductivity). We call it aluminum foil for cable.
3. Aluminum foils are also used for grilling delicate foods such as mushrooms and vegetables. Using this method, sometimes called a "hobo pack", the food is wrapped in aluminum foils and placed on a grill to prevent moisture loss, which makes the taste less appealing.
