Have any questions about the specifics of metal processing? How are aluminum foil sheets made? Wondering what kinds of materials All Foils works with? Why is aluminum spelled differently in other countries? We have answers to many of your metal questions here.
Check below to see if your question is answered. Don’t see it here? Ask us! We’ll be sure to answer you quickly.
A Non-Ferrous Metal is any metal that does not contain iron. Common Non-Ferrous Metals are; Aluminum, Copper, Nickel, Tin, Lead, Zinc, and the alloy Brass.
Because aluminum and certain of its alloys are strengthened beyond their basic strengths only by strain hardening, they are non-heat-treatable. Nearly all of the foil presently produced is rolled from non-heat-treatable alloys, which are given H number temper designations for the various specific strain-hardened conditions in which they are made. For example, common foil availability is alloy 1145-H19; the H1 means strain hardened, and the next digit indicates the degree of hardening, the 9 meaning full hard.
