Price composition ratio

  • Net weight of aluminum foil: 80%-90%
  • Packaging (including cartons, wooden pallets, etc.): 2%-5%
  • Paper tube: 0.5%-2%
  • Plastic holder: 0.5%-2%
  • Metal cutter: 0.05%-1%
  • Labor and site: 5%-10%

Price calculation

Aluminum foil weight (without paper tube) = aluminum foil length * aluminum foil width * aluminum foil thickness * aluminum foil density

Aluminum foil cost = aluminum foil weight * (aluminum ingot price + aluminum foil processing fee)

According to the needs of customers, custom aluminum foil rolls, the cost of each material is different, and special calculation is required

In general, aluminum foil roll price = aluminum foil price + packaging cost + material cost (such as paper tube, plastic holder, metal cutter) + labor site cost + transportation cost (optional)

Why do the quotes I receive vary widely?

The cost of aluminum foil rolls is almost transparent. Aiboer's quotation is composed of the actual cost and very little profit. We strictly follow the customer's needs and customize the production completely according to the size provided by the customer without cutting corners.ensure that the quality of aluminum foil rolls meets the testing requirements of SGS and FDA, and ensure that the net weight of aluminum foil has almost no tolerance (within 1%).

When the quotations you receive differ greatly, please confirm whether the net weight of the aluminum foil (excluding the weight of the paper tube) is the same. The most important factor in the quotation of aluminum foil is not the area of aluminum foil, nor the length or width of aluminum foil.

Aiboer's official quotation will list the cost of each item, so that customers can understand what our costs are.

Aluminum foil wrap alloys

Which aluminum alloys can be used as Aluminum foil wrap is generally considered from the strength and toughness of the aluminum alloy, anti-corrosion performance, thermal conductivity and processing performance.

How is aluminum foil wrap produced?

How to use aluminum foil the right way

The thickness of the aluminum foil is related to the usage scenario. Different scenarios need to withstand different pressures, temperatures and weights, so the thickness is also different. Aiboer can custom produce household aluminum foil in different thicknesses, both length and width are optional.

On the other hand, according to the thickness of household aluminum foil, household aluminum foil can also be divided into conventional household aluminum foil and heavy duty aluminum foil.


Aluminum foil for grilling BBQ

Thickness: 0.02-0.03 mm

Application: In the kitchen or outdoors, for ovens, grills, for baking and cooking food.

Applicable scenarios: grill, oven, microwave oven, rice cooker, freezer, refrigerator, etc.

Aluminum foil for baking and heating

Thickness: 0.01-0.018mm

Application: In the kitchen, it is used to pack food or other items, and can be used with air fryer and microwave oven to heat food.

Applicable scenarios: air fryer, microwave oven, rice cooker, etc.

Aluminum foil for food preservation and freezing

Thickness: 0.009-0.015mm

Application: In the kitchen, used to pack food or other items to keep them fresh and prevent damage, also can be used to heat food

Applicable scene: freezer, refrigerator, use at room temperature

Heavy duty aluminum foil

The thickness of heavy duty aluminum foil is usually thicker than ordinary household aluminum foil, and the most commonly used thickness is 0.94 mils (24mic). Its use scenarios are relatively rich, and it can be used almost anywhere you want, including barbecue.

Thickness: 0.018mm-0.03mm

Application: For baking and cooking, also can be used for packaging food or other items to keep their freshness and prevent damage

Applicable scenarios: grill, oven, microwave oven, rice cooker, freezer, refrigerator, etc.

Heavy duty aluminum foil vs regular

Both heavy duty aluminum foil and regular aluminum foil paper are aluminum foil wrap, but heavy duty aluminum foil is thicker than regular aluminum foil paper, so it is more durable and can withstand heavier items and higher temperatures. It is usually used for Baking and cooking.

And regular aluminum foil paper wrap is usually used for food heating, food packaging or food preservation and freezing.

Heavy duty aluminum foil Regular foil paper
Thickness 0.018mm-0.03mm 0.008mm-0.02mm
Length less than 30m more than 30m
Uses Grilling, Baking , Freezing and Cooking Heating, food preservation, Baking

Extra heavy duty aluminum foil vs Heavy duty aluminum foil

Extra Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil refers to a type of aluminum foil that is thicker than regular aluminum foil.

Generally, the thickness of extra heavy duty aluminum foil ranges from 0.03mm to 0.2mm, which is much thicker than the thickness of regular aluminum foil.

Due to its thicker gauge, extra heavy duty aluminum foil is typically more durable and better suited for applications that require greater strength and durability, such as when baking meats or bread at high temperatures, or when better protection against freezer burn is needed when freezing food.

Extra Heavy duty aluminum foil Heavy duty aluminum foil
Thickness 0.003mm-0.2mm 0.018mm-0.03mm
Uses Bake meat or bread at high temperatures or freeze at very low temperatures General high temperature, heating, baking

Is cooking with aluminum foil safe?

Yes, it is generally safe to cook with aluminum foil. However, it is important to use the foil properly and not to overuse it. When aluminum foil is heated, small amounts of aluminum can leach into the food, but the amount is considered safe by the World Health Organization.
