Aluminum foil is a material made of metal aluminum directly pressed into thin sheets. It has a soft texture and good ductility. It is widely used in food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging, cable foil, air conditioning foil, battery foil, building insulation layer, etc. Especially in the packaging industry, the application is very common.

Aluminum foil for packaging is made from electrolytic aluminum with a purity of 99.0%-99.7%, which is produced through multiple rolling processes. Commonly used alloy 1060 aluminum foil, 1100, 3003, 8011, 8021 aluminum foil, etc. This kind of packaging is not only moisture-proof, air-tight and light-shielding, but also has the advantages of fragrance retention, non-toxic and odorless. Such advantages are unmatched by any other existing packaging materials. Below, we introduce in detail the advantages and disadvantages of aluminum foil packaging.
