Thickness of aluminum foil

Thickness of aluminum foil

Aluminium foil roll is a hot stamping material that is directly calendered into thin sheets with metal aluminum. Its hot stamping effect is similar to that of pure silver foil, so it is also called fake silver foil. Aluminum foil is due to its excellent characteristics and aluminum foil roll price. Occupying an advantageous price, it is widely used in food, beverages, cigarettes, photographic plates, household daily necessities, etc., and is usually used as its packaging material.
Nowadays, aluminum foil is more and more widely used, and the thickness of aluminum foil is also different for different purposes. If aluminum foil has some typical applications in our daily life and industry, the thickness can determine its performance and application.
Aluminum foil is usually the most expensive layer in multilayer flexible packaging, so the thinnest possible thickness is used.
The thickness of thick aluminum foil is usually less than 150 μm. The specifications of the thin aluminum foil are as low as 6.0 μm. Thicker aluminum foil specifications (> 17μm) provide an absolute barrier for gases and liquids. At 38°C and 90%RH, the typical water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) of 9μm aluminum foil is 0.3 g/m2 per 24 hours. As the thickness decreases, the foil becomes easier to tear or shrink.
Aluminum foil products are commonplace in modern times-almost everyone's kitchen can be rolled into a pot for cooking. Aluminum foil has high thickness and durability, and can withstand a lot of wear. Due to its high puncture resistance and tear resistance, it is the best covering for foil steam table top pots because the pots will bend when carried.

Effect of Aluminum Foil Thickness on Application

The choice of aluminum foil thickness depends on the specific requirements of the application. It involves trade-offs among factors such as insulation, strength, flexibility, barrier properties, cost, conductivity, weight and formability. Aluminum foil manufacturers and users must take these factors into consideration. So where your specific application is, the foil thickness will be purposefully selected to meet the specific needs of the application.

Effect of aluminum foil thickness on insulation:

Aluminum foil thickness generally provides better insulation. For example, in cooking or baking, aluminum foil thickness may be preferred to help retain heat and cook food more evenly.
Strength and durability:


Effect of aluminum foil thickness on flexibility:

Foil thickness has a big impact on flexibility. If the aluminum foil is too thick, the flexibility will be correspondingly worse. On the contrary, the flexibility will be very good.

The impact of aluminum foil thickness on cost:

The greater the thickness of the aluminum foil, the greater the weight of the aluminum foil roll. The cost of aluminum foil will also increase according to the increase in weight, and the cost will become higher.

Effect of aluminum foil thickness on weight:

The higher the aluminum foil thickness value, the greater the weight of a single roll of aluminum foil, which also greatly affects the overall weight. In the aerospace industry or transport packaging, for example, the choice of aluminum foil thickness can affect the overall weight of the product.

The thickness of aluminum foil produced by HTMM ranges from 0.006mm (6 microns) to 0.2mm (20 microns). This thickness is suitable for making household aluminum foil, flexible packaging aluminum foil, and industrial aluminum foil. It can be said that including most applications, the most important thing is that HTMM is a well-known aluminum foil manufacturer with a good reputation in the industry and rich export experience, making it a reliable manufacturer.
