Aluminum Foil

Aluminum foil products are widely used in our day-to-day lives.  Almost every singly household uses aluminum foil for some sort of purpose.  Whether it be cooking or any other activity, aluminum foil is truly a wonder invention that people take for granted.  Manufacturing Aluminum foil all started early on in the 20th century.  Back before this time, only small portions of foil were able to be created by a manual hammering process.  This old style of creating Aluminum foil was extremely inefficient because it required a lot of physical labour which generated just a fraction of foil compared to the machines.   No one had a problem with the classical methods, but when manufacturing aluminum became a machine assisted process, there simply was no looking back.  Over time all companies started adopting this method of foil production, and the companies that didn’t were run out of business.  They could no longer afford to produce less foil for more expensive rates.

 

A History On Aluminum Processing

After some time, the aluminum foil manufacturing processes we use today became common practice.  Every company began adopting this new method and the industry shifted into this new norm.  Today’s aluminum foil is created by rolling aluminum through a mill that effectively crushes and spreads the aluminum into a thin and long sheet.  This process completely reduces aluminum thickness and takes care of the hard work of creating aluminum foil.  After the foil is nice and thin, it is wrapped up in it’s entirety into large coils at the end of the production line.  These large coils are then sent all the way down to the “cold rolling mills” where they are cold rolled to perfection.  The coils can be stored and heat up in a furnace to be further softened, or sent for additional cold rolling to create any desired result.  Today this is the new industry standard to aluminum foil Dubai production.  The industry is always looking for ways to improve the manufacturing process and become more efficient.  But until then, this method is the standard operating procedure.

For a certain type of aluminum foil products, the last step employed is the cold rolling process.  Although this is a finishing touch, there are many other types of aluminum foil on that market that requires a lot more processing than others.  Most people are unaware that there are different types of foil.  They simply buy foil at the market without giving it a second though.  But there are indeed many types.  In the event that the aluminum does need additional processing, it is sent through higher temperature conditions to further increase its strength.

A Breakdown On Alloy Types

Like other metals, aluminum can come in server types of alloys.  An alloy is when two or more metallic elements are mixed together to form a stronger mental.  This method can be extremely cost effective, and produce higher quality aluminum.

There are many types of aluminum alloys that can be created. When it comes to choosing an aluminum alloy, many factors that must be considered before a decision is made.  Metrics such as rust resistance, density, flexibility, tensile strength, and much much more.  Thankfully, professional experts can help their partners find out exactly which types of aluminum alloys fit their unique needs and desires, and help provide them.

 

How Aluminum Foil Sheets Are Measured

Aluminum foil sheet metal thickness is measured in a metric called a Gauge.  It may seem a little counter-intuitive, but the higher the “Gauge” measurement is the thinner the sheet of aluminum will be.  For example, a 000000 gauge of aluminum sheet would be one of the thickest measurements, at a 12.732 mm, while on the opposite side of the spectrum, a 40 gauge aluminum sheet would be the thinnest at 0.79mm thickness.

Many aluminum companies have all ranges of aluminum foil available, ranging from 1.016mm to .00508 mm in thickness.  If you specifically are in search of a whole sale aluminum foil partner, we would be glad to help provide it.  Our aluminum is made from the advanced processes you’ve just read about here, and are completed in faster time frames than your average aluminum foil manufacturing companies.
