2016-06-03

Ever wonder why your food turns bad and dark when outside the fridge? In fact, it happens due to the reaction of bacteria with substances in food and the effect of oxygen on fats which causes them to become rancid. This is where aluminum foil has a role as it acts as a barrier against light, oxygen, odour, moisture, and bacteria. Commercial aluminum foil is so pliant that you can wrap it around anything. The reason for the popularity of foil is being inexpensive, durable, non-toxic and greaseproof, so it's perfect for food packaging.

In food packaging, it has many applications including aseptic packaging for drinks and dairy products that allows them to be kept outside the refrigerator or wrapping leftovers inside the fridge so they don't dry up. Traveling can also be more pleasurable and not messy anymore when you wrap all your food and sandwiches with commercial foil. Furthermore, wrapping delicate foods like mushrooms and vegetables with aluminum foil are ideal for barbeques. And if you have never had an onion cooked on the grill wrapped in foil, you are missing out. What’s more, it is also a great solution for packaging fast food or take-away meals.

As a matter of fact, the strength and puncture resistance of this material is due to the balance of iron and silicon present in the alloy. Now, safety should not be a fear when using aluminum foil as it's safe as ever to wrap food for all your family to use. This easily used foil wrap will make packaging food a piece of cake with no difficulty in folding and wrapping.

Recently, aluminium foil is not only used for packaging but also used to manufacture thermal insulation for the construction industry, fin stock for air conditioners, electric coils for transformers, capacitors for radios and televisions, insulation for storage tanks and decorative products. The many uses have forced some to call it the 'wonder' material.

In conclusion, the use of aluminum foil is not limited to only one or two industries. On the contrary, it seems like that it can be used everywhere for different purposes. However, when purchasing aluminum foil, remember to buy it from reliable suppliers or manufacturers, as dishonest suppliers may provide you low-quality products which may cause problems when using this product. To avoid any trouble, high-quality aluminum foil is advisable.
