What does aluminium foil mean as a name of something?


  1. foil made of aluminum

Alternative definition of the noun aluminium foil


  1. [British] A very thin, pliable, easily torn sheet of aluminium used for cooking, packaging, cosmetics, and insulation.


Aluminium foil is aluminium prepared in thin metal leaves with a thickness less than 0.2 millimetres; thinner gauges down to 6 micrometres are also commonly used. In the United States, foils are commonly gauged in thousandths of an inch or mils. Standard household foil is typically 0.016 mm thick, and heavy duty household foil is typically 0.024 mm. The foil is pliable, and can be readily bent or wrapped around objects. Thin foils are fragile and are sometimes laminated to other materials such as plastics or paper to make them more useful. Aluminium foil supplanted tin foil in the mid 20th century.
