  • Aluminum foil is sometimes known as al-foil or alu-foil. It is also often called tinfoil (although it is not made from tin), silver paper (although it is not made from silver), or in North America as Reynolds wrap after Reynolds Metals, the leading manufacturer when it was introduced on the American market (much to the chagrin of Alcoa, Reynolds' main competitor, which had its brand "Alcoa Wrap" referred to as "Alcoa Reynold's Wrap")[citation needed]. Metallised films are sometimes mistaken for aluminium foil, but are actually polymer films coated with a thin layer of aluminium.
  • Aluminium foil typically has a highly reflective side and a more matte side. This difference in the finish has led to the perception that favouring a side has an effect when cooking. While many believe that the shiny side's reflective properties keep heat in when wrapped on the interior and keep heat out when facing exterior, the actual difference is imperceptible without instrumentation . The reflectivity of bright aluminium foil is 88% while dull embossed foil is about 80%
  • Aluminium foil is produced by rolling sheet ingots cast from molten aluminium then re-rolling on sheet and foil rolling mills to the desired thickness, or by continuously casting and cold rolling. The continuous casting method is much less energy intensive and has become the preferred process. For thicknesses below 0.025 mm (0.01 in), two layers are usually put together for the final pass which produces foil with one bright side and one matte side. The two sides in contact with each other are matte and the exterior sides become bright. This done to reduce tearing, increase production rates and to help control thickness.
  • The production of aluminium flat-rolled products can schematically be divided into four major steps as Hot strip production, Strip rolling , Thin-strip and foil rolling , Slitting operation.
  • In developed countries, rolling technology underwent various stages of development such as pack rolling, strip rolling, two-high rolling, threehigh rolling, four-high rolling and lastly the development of universal foil mill All these technologies were developed, in stages, with a view to improving the productivity and yield, so that technical and cost competitiveness could be ensured.
  • Approximately 75 per cent of aluminium foil is used in packaging where its characteristics of strength, formability and barrier properties have made it an essential part of many flexible packaging and container applications.
  • The foil is used for packaging of many products, some of them are : Pharmaceutical tablets, Bulk & unitized packing of tea and coffee, Prepared meals, Bakery products, Frozen meat, fish, Milk bottle caps, Wine, Lube Oil, greases, Powdered milk, Confectionery, Biscuits, Photographic film, Gift wraps, Household wraps, Butter, margarine, Cigarettes.
  • The applications of Foil could be divided into two major groups i.e packaging applications and non-packaging applications Packaging applications include the products given above For these products, the requirement of packaging is such that it should protect the product from physical and chemical changes and climatic hazards Non-packaging applications include heat exchangers tube fins in air conditioners, capacitors and cable wraps, in which specific properties of the foil such as conductivity are used.
  • The present indigenous demand for the foil has been estimated to be about 9000 tpa. The drugs and pharmaceutical sector accounts for almost 40% of the total demand Among the other sectors, the tin containers, chocolates, cigarettes, biscuits, are the major foil consuming industries.
  • The annual demand for foil is estimated to increase from present level of 9000 tonnes to about 13000 tonnes by 1990 and to about 21000 tonnes by 1995. These estimates are based on existing application patterns and likelihood of growth prospects of user sectors.
