What Are The USES Of Metallic Foil? Jul 25, 2017

What are the USES of Metallic Foil?

The use of foil is very broad, such as: aviation food packaging, ordinary meat packing, cigarette package, etc. The experts divided it into more than 20 varieties according to their application characteristics. Due to the differences in economic development level, there is a large gap between the consumption structure of Metallic Foil. In developed countries in Europe and America, the Metallic Foil used for packaging accounts for 70% of the total demand. In the Chinese market, the Metallic Foil is mainly used as the raw material for industrial manufacturing. The packaging of foil only accounts for 30% of the total domestic demand. Although the Metallic Foil packaging development is late, but the market is growing rapidly, the foreground is attracting attention.

The Metallic Foil is quite remarkable in the construction application, and the surface of the insulation materials is used to make it more convenient and clean, especially to a new height. But different kinds of Metallic Foil effect vary greatly, such as fire prevention and ordinary is not a grade.

Generally have the gloss foil bag surface features, don't absorb light, take the multilayer production, therefore, Metallic Foil both good shading, also has the very strong insulated, and because of aluminum components inside, therefore also has the very good oil resistance and softness. Compared to plastic bags, Metallic Foil bags have no toxic or special odor. Absolutely green products, environmental products, also in line with the national hygienic standard of Metallic Foil bags.

Metallic Foil is usually used for food storage (such as Metallic Foil) to be used for barbecues, such as bean sprouts, potatoes, sweet potatoes, etc., so as not to burn. Sometimes used for decorative purposes. The modern Metallic Foil is made of aluminum and can be used as an aluminum electrode for electrolysis. There are also hairdressers who perm with Metallic Foil. Some people use Metallic Foil to absorb the oil in the soup. Metallic Foil is also widely used in isolation, heat exchange, and used as conductive body. Usually, the Metallic Foil used in packaging and food packaging is only 6.5 micrometers. This thin aluminum layer can be waterproof, fresh, antibacterial and anti-fouling.

Be filled food

It is very common to carry food in foil plates, although Metallic Foil plates are disposable tableware, but the composition is aluminum, which is less harmful to nature.


Some foods (such as melons, mushrooms, etc.) must be cooked with Metallic Foil to avoid burning. Use foil to cook seafood, mushrooms, etc., can retain umami.

Electric hair

Some hairdressers wrap their hair in foil to heat their hair and have a better heat transfer effect. Improper use of Metallic Foil can lead to burns and poor quality.

Oil absorption

Turn the Metallic Foil into a ball and open it. You can drain the oil from the soup. The principle is that the surface tension of the foil is amplified when the Metallic Foil is crumpled.

Metallic Foil is widely used in automobile manufacturing, textile, electronic industry, electromechanical industry, aerospace industry, packaging industry, construction industry, shipbuilding industry, etc., is an important industrial raw material.

Currently, China can consume 16.13 million tons of Metallic Foil a year. The most consumed product in China's Metallic Foil market is air conditioner foil. Second, tobacco foil, China is the world's largest cigarette production and consumer, cigarette packaging annual consumption of tobacco leaf of 35,000 tons, accounting for 60% of the total amount of double zero foil; Third, decorative foil, used in the construction industry for thermal insulation, moisture-proof and decorative materials, the current Chinese construction, home appliances industry has formed the application of decorative foil; Four is cable foil, using the sealing and shielding of foil, used as the cable shield. The four varieties of foil consumption account for more than 70% of China's total Metallic Foil consumption. The foil, electronic foil, automotive foil and soft packaging are also important in the Metallic Foil market.

Apart from cigarette packaging, the application of foil in packaging industry mainly includes: aluminum plastic compound bag, pharmaceutical Metallic Foil bubble wrap and chocolate packaging. Some premium beers are also wrapped in Metallic Foil.
