What Are China Aluminum Foil Uses II

2016-09-17

Foil with water and grease proof paper on one side is used in the packaging of butter, cheese, ice cream and other dairy products. Fruit juices and wines can be kept for extended periods of time at room temperature in containers made from paper, aluminum foil and polyethylene film. The paper creates a frame for the container, the aluminum foil provides protection and the polyethylene film seals the container.

At home, people also prefer to store foods in aluminum foil, especially cheese. Even in a fridge, cheese easily absorbs foreign odours which can alter its taste. Luckily, foil solves this problem completely. It is also worth noting that the best way to bake is to wrap the food in aluminum foil first. If the foil used in the process has enough strength, it can significantly protects the pans or trays. Strong enough foil can easily withstand the weight of the food you are baking.

In addition to its great shielding properties, another benefit of aluminum foil as a packaging material has to do with the savings that can be achieved in transporting goods.

Medicines are another important product that aluminum foil is used to package. Once manufactured, medications must be protected from the elements over an extended period of time, often for years, as exposure can alter their properties. Aluminum foil is used in the packaging of all types of medications such as pills, capsules, creams, lotions, liquid and powder medications. Aluminum foil offers 100% protection against light, moisture, oxygen and other gases as well as against microorganisms and bacteria.

Did you know that wine makers, who tend to be fairly conservative, are increasingly using aluminum stoppers in their bottles. The British started using aluminum stoppers in their whisky bottles as far back as 1926, but for a long time, the wine industry didn't buy into the idea. Later on however, tests were carried out and found that an aluminum top cuts off the oxygen flow and is just as good at 'aging' the wine as a traditional cork.

In addition, aluminum cans are the most environmentally friendly and most recyclable type of container in the world. Aluminum cans allow the beverages inside them to retain their taste, while protecting them from the negative impact of the elements. Furthermore, the can itself does not get rusty or lose its properties in any other way. More than half of the aluminum in existence today will be recycled. In some countries, the share of aluminum cans in circulation is much greater than in others, for example, in Germany, 95% of all beverages are contained in aluminum cans.
