The story of aluminum’s history of use in the U.S. now stretches over 100 years. The start was a modest one, however. Because of the complexities of refining aluminum from ore, aluminum was considered more rare and precious than gold or silver through most of the 19th century. A pure form of the metal was first successfully extracted from ore in 1825 by Danish chemist Hans-Christian. Techniques to produce aluminum in ways modestly cost-effective emerged in 1889. This lightweight, 100 percent-recyclable metal has since become a foundation of our country’s infrastructure. Used in packaging, automotive, energy, construction, transportation, energy, aerospace and defense applications, to name a few—aluminum’s impact is so profound that historians may one day look back on our times and declare this “The Age of Aluminum.” 1911, the Swiss company fancied candy aluminum foil, and make decisions: using aluminum foil instead of the original chocolate foil packaging. It is courageous to change the company’s Swiss candy, wrapped in aluminum foil so that the world began to emerge, it is also increasingly superior performance allowed by the world-wide attention.

After two to three decades, the development of aluminum foil packaging has been relatively stable until World War II, it embarked on a fast track foil packaging. At that time, by virtue of the excellent barrier properties and extensibility, aluminum foil packaging materials as a military conquest of the governments and the military to rapid development.

At the 50s of last century, aluminum foil and plastic composite materials began to appear, the practicality of aluminum foil has been further developed. 1970s, aluminum foil is celebrating its “career” in a gorgeous turn – color printing technology continues to mature, so the appearance of aluminum foil becomes more eye-catching, eye-catching. Aluminum foil and plastic composite materials, packaging development has been the rapid development again, came to the wider life of ordinary people into the universal stage.

In the 21st century, the growing popularity of aluminum foil packaging showing a trend of market competition, but also stimulate the upgrading of packaging foil material to some extent. The first generation of aluminum foil laminated paper is 0.06 mm aluminum foil and paper bonded, the second generation of laminating paper, and the paper is carried out by bonding after PET or OPP film by spraying aluminum, the third generation of vacuum aluminum, is the latest generation of products, the biggest advantage is that compared to the previous aluminum layer is very thin, only 6.5-7 microns, and high environmental protection, security level, a wide range.

Let us look to the country. As early as 1932, China’s first appeared in aluminum foil rolling mill – China aluminum steel finishing plant, the plant is wholly foreign-owned enterprises, China’s state-owned enterprises in 1960, renamed “aluminum ALUMINUM” followed by the development pole fast, in just six months, it has undergone a tremendous change: aluminum foil, aluminum, aluminum average monthly increase of 414.4 percent, 385.4 percent of the average monthly output growth, labor productivity growth of 248.2%, and to achieve the export of aluminum foil in 1961.

After 30 years, the Chinese aluminum industry usher in a period of great development, the first 20 years for the modernization of the aluminum foil industry laid the foundation for sustained high-speed development stage after catch up with world advanced level in 10 years. Today, China has become a power in the primary aluminum industry. While our company is one of the best aluminum foil manufacturer in the China.
