Household and Institutional Foil


Bare aluminum foil for daily individual use is today available in the most parts of the world, in various widths, lengths and gauges. Production facilities are versatile to meet the varied product requirements. For example, spooling of foil products such as household or institutional wrap, is an automatic operation which produces the familiar "rolls" of foil used in households and businesses for countless applications. Spooling is done by a machine that winds a pre-set measured length of foil onto a paperboard core, cuts off the individual roll thus produced, and automatically starts the next roll onto a new core. The operation is fed from a large coil of foil, slit to the proper width for the particular roll product being run. Completed rolls are cartoned, and the packaged product is packed into shipping containers.


Household Foil

One of the most-used and versatile materials in the home, household aluminum foil is available in practically every food, drug, variety and department store, and in many other retail outlets. It has become such a convenience item in modern life that it seems almost pointless to enumerate its many uses in kitchen, basement, garage, yard, camping, boating and wherever people go.


Household foil is packaged on paperboard-tube rolls in "cutting edge" folding cartons in three weights and several widths. Typical foil gauges are 0.00065 in. for standard, 0.00095 in. for heavy duty, and 0.0015 in. for extra heavy duty. Most household foil cartons are, predictably, brightly and attractively printed foil cartons.
