Description

A thin sheet of aluminum or an aluminum alloy. Aluminum foil is rolled to thicknesses of about 20 microns or less. It generally has one highly polished side and one matte side because two sheets are rolled at the same time then separated. Aluminum foil tears easily, is impermeable to air, reflective to radiation, and has commonly been used for packaging food. It is also laminated to paper, boards, and plastic to provide a vapor barrier layer. Crumpled aluminum foil has also been used for thermal insulation.
