Sheet of aluminum foil used in cooking

Aluminum foil known for its insulation benefits as well as several other uses. Used throughout the food service industry and residential space. Foil paper is created by using an extremely thin caliper metal which is laminated to a specialty paper for added strength. Thus making the paper pliable, wrinkle-resistant and durable. This paper can also be top-coated to improve printing. Making Foil paper a good use in labels and box-wrap.

Application/Industry Area

Packaging
Acting as barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moistness and germs, this foil will be used in pharmaceutical and food packaging. Used in drinks and dairy goods so the use of refrigeration is limited in use. Use for keeping foods warm and hot in wrapping of various sandwiches, burritos and Tex-mex offerings.
Insulation
Used widely for thermal insulation, heat exchangers and cable liners. In uses of thermal it provides a reflective barrier. In heat exchangers it provides heat conduction and in wiring and cable it provides a barrier from electrical conductivity.
Cooking
First to come to mind is barbecuing. Food is wrapped in the foil and placed directly on the grill. This prevents moisture loss and burning of food.
Art & Decoration
Used for art, decoration and crafts where metallic colors are often used. Heavier foils are used in these applications. By anodizing aluminum foil it will force it to take on a different color. This process is used to create an inexpensive gold foil.
Electromagnetic Shielding
Varying the thickness of the foil will change the shielding effectiveness. Used for shielding components from frequencies, this makes a good insulation in the production of electrical wiring and electrical devices.
