Mingtai Aluminum, a prominent domestic manufacturer, specializes in producing aluminum foil of different specifications ranging from 0.012mm to 0.2mm. Their range includes 1060 aluminum foil from the 1 series, 3003 aluminum foil from the 3 series, and 8011 aluminum foil from the 8 series, among others. With exceptional product quality, competitive pricing, and attentive post-sales support, the company has garnered a stellar reputation in the industry, earning numerous prestigious accolades.
Aluminum foil plays a crucial role in food packaging, with two main types being aluminum-plastic or aluminum paper composite packaging, as well as aluminum-plastic paper multilayer composite packaging. Its utilization in food-grade packaging in China amounts to approximately 30,000 tons annually. Given the ongoing growth and development of China’s food industry, there exists substantial potential for future advancements in aluminum foil’s application in food packaging.
Medical packaging extensively employs aluminum foil for various purposes, including the packaging of liquid products, granules, capsules, tablets, easy-open bottle caps, and medical PTP (Press Through Packaging) aluminum foil. The utilization of PTP aluminum foil in pharmaceutical packaging provides advantages such as moisture-proofing, light-proofing, safety, hygiene, and portability. The pharmaceutical foil market has experienced rapid expansion due to both the fast-paced growth of the pharmaceutical sector and the increasing usage of aluminum foil in pharmaceutical packaging.
Aluminum foil finds its place in the automotive industry in two distinct forms: fin inventory and aluminum foil for automobile radiators. These foils are instrumental in the production of automotive radiators, condensers, and evaporators. China’s demand for aluminum foil in automotive air conditioners has already reached tens of thousands of tons annually, and the demand for aluminum foil in automotive water tanks continues to rise.
Cable foil serves as a protective and shielding layer on the outer surface of cables. It comprises an aluminum foil with a thickness ranging from 0.15mm to 0.20mm, coated with a special plastic film (0.058mm thick).
Honeycomb aluminum foil employs a hexagonal honeycomb core made from 3003 aluminum foil, with thicknesses ranging from 0.02mm to 0.06mm. Its lightweight, high strength, rigidity, and advantageous properties like sound insulation, heat insulation, water resistance, moisture resistance, and absence of harmful gas emissions make it a popular choice for high-rise building exterior wall decoration.
