Reinforced Aluminium Foil, also known as Barrier Film, is a flexible, waterproof, opaque and heat-sealable laminated material made from the sandwiching of aluminium between a transparent nylon film and multiple layers of heat-sealable polyethene. The formation of these layers creates moisture and oxygen-proof characteristics. It also makes the layers an excellent resistance to tears and punctures. Economical and flexible, the aluminium foil is typically used to control humidity in shipping or storage packaging bags.
The Reinforced Aluminium Foil with its high physical strength is commonly used to pack large and heavy-duty metal machinery and electrical products with metal processing surfaces. Able to pack in various shapes and sizes, it is suitable for applications such as machine tools, military equipment, printing machine, rubber processing equipment, engines and other heavy-duty components.
Economical and flexible, the Reinforced Aluminium Foil is a packaging solution for sealing and lining shipping crates to prevent off-gassing and shelves from protecting against harmful elements from the surrounding environment such as moisture, liquid or gases, minimising damage to goods. With the proper packaging method used, the aluminium foil creates a tightly sealed, low oxygen environment eliminating pest infestation, and providing products with enhanced protection. This tightly sealed environment also allows the Reinforced Aluminium Foil to regulate and maintain the humidity in the packaging.
Place finished packaged product on a wooden pallet after sealing. It is recommended to use together with desiccant bags and humidity indicator card to ensure humidity control. Store in a cool and dry warehouse and keep away from any potential source of fire and avoid contamination of chemicals or corrosive atmosphere. With proper packaging, shelf life can be up to 12 months.
