With the continuous development of global trade and logistics, cold-chain transportation has gradually become an important link in industries such as food and medicine. In cold chain transportation, maintaining a stable low-temperature environment is crucial to ensure the quality and safety of goods. Aluminum foil cold chain packaging has become an indispensable part of cold chain transportation due to its excellent thermal insulation performance, moisture resistance, and corrosion resistance. This article will discuss the benefits and importance of aluminum foil cold chain packaging, and help you gain an in-depth understanding of cold chain transportation.

What Are the Benefits of Using Aluminum Foil for Cold Chain Packaging?

Aluminum foil is widely used in cold chain packaging. Cold chain packaging refers to the packaging of items that need to be transported and stored under low-temperature conditions. The following are the benefits of aluminum foil in cold chain packaging:

Keep Warm and Cold

Aluminum foil has good thermal conductivity, which can effectively prevent heat conduction, keep the temperature inside the package stable, and prevent temperature fluctuations from affecting product quality. At the same time, the aluminum foil can also effectively prevent external heat from entering the inside of the package, thus playing a role in cold preservation.

Moisture and Oxidation Resistance

The surface of the aluminum foil is smooth and has good moisture resistance and oxidation resistance, which can prevent the quality changes of the items inside the package due to moisture or oxidation.

Portable and Easy to Carry

The aluminum foil material is light, easy to carry, and suitable for use in different transportation occasions.

Health and Safety

Aluminum foil is non-toxic and harmless, will not pollute the contents of the package, is easy to clean, meets food hygiene standards, and guarantees product quality and safety.

Good Plasticity

Aluminum foil has good plasticity and can be folded, compressed, formed, and other operations according to different packaging requirements, which is convenient for packaging and storage.

What Are the Applications of Aluminum Foil in Cold Chain Packaging?

Aluminum foil is an excellent thermal insulation material with good thermal insulation performance and plasticity. The following is the application of aluminum foil in cold chain packaging and its detailed description:

Refrigerated and Frozen Food Packaging

Aluminum foil is widely used in the packaging of refrigerated and frozen foods. Aluminum foil can effectively isolate external heat and moisture, and maintain the freshness and nutritional value of food. Aluminum foil can also be shaped into different shapes and sizes during the packaging process to suit different products.

Pharmaceutical Packaging

Aluminum foil is also used in the packaging of pharmaceuticals. Aluminum foil can help protect pharmaceuticals from external elements such as light, moisture, and oxygen during storage and transport. This helps ensure the safety and effectiveness of medicines. Aluminum foil can also help reduce the leakage and evaporation of pharmaceuticals.

Beverage Packaging

Aluminum foil is also used in beverage packaging. Aluminum foil can help preserve the freshness and taste of beverages and protect them from the elements. Aluminum foil can also help reduce beverage spillage and evaporation.

Cooking and Baking Supplies

Aluminum foil can be used as cooking and baking supplies. Aluminum foil can be used to wrap food to prevent premature or overcooked food when grilling. Aluminum foil can also be used in oven and grill coverings to prevent food from sticking and reduce cleanup time.

Aluminum foil not only helps to maintain the freshness and quality of the product but also enhances the thermal and thermal insulation properties of the product. Aluminum foil also has excellent plasticity and adaptability and can adapt to products of different shapes and sizes. If you are looking for aluminum foil, welcome to contact us.

Which to choose Aluminum foil coated PE or Metalized pet film coated PE ?

It depends on what product to be made in final procedure. Aluminum foil coated pe is with at least 97% reflectivity, it can be bonded to EPE foam but also most of time for laminated with bubble. Metalized pet film coated PE with lower reflectivity ,but it is with strong surface.

I am a insulated liner/bag manufacturer,what product do you suggest?

There maybe bubble lamination machines and heating pressure lamination machines in your factory, we suggest Aluminum foil 7mic+PE20mic, and Metalized PET film12mic+PE15mic.

If i would like to get a quote ,what information shall i need to know first?

You are request to telling application, material structure,thickness and roll width and quantity.

What is the MOQ and how is packaging?

MOQ is 1000kgs for each product, packaging depends on roll size, common width is 1200mm and 1500mm, length are 4000m to 5000m per roll. Rolls can be vertically packed on pallet also accept to do horizontal suspending packaging.

Is this product by wet lamination or by dry lamination?

Both wet lamination line(extrusion coating) and dry lamination line(glue coating) are equiped in our Pengyuan group.
