Aluminium foil for technical applications

Incombustible insulation

The barrier properties and heat reflectivity of aluminium foil are widely used to improve insulation performance of modern building systems.

Key features

  • Absolute barrier function for insulation
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Incombustible
  • Reflective surface
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Durable


Product details

Aluminium foil is used

  • as a skin for heat-insulating and incombustible materials to provide high performance insulation for pipe work and ducting
  • as a basis for adhesive tape used to secure laminated materials
  • in electrical cables, for long-term insulation against moisture and corrosive elements
  • as an insulator against the magnetic and radio frequency emissions associated with electrical cables
  • as a sheath for fiber-optic cables, to enable testing of the integrity of cable links and secure a long shelf life
  • in fire walls for vehicles and fireproof doors and building panels to stop access to the oxygen required to support flames
  • as electrode layer in batteries

Application areas

  • Fire walls
  • Fire doors
  • Fibre optic cables
  • Electrical cables
  • Batteries for power storage systems
  • Batteries for electro-mobility

Aluminium can be processed
in a cold and hot condition

Aluminium is ductile. Foil can be rolled to only 0.007 mm thickness, but will still be completely impermeable and lets neither light, aroma nor taste substances in or out. The metal itself forms a protective oxide coating and is highly corrosion resistant. Different types of surface treatment can further improve these properties.
