Q: Does aluminum foil provide insulation ?
A: Aluminum foil is widely used for thermal insulation (barrier and reflectivity), cable liners, (barrier and electrical conductivity) and heat exchangers (heat conduction). Aluminum foil's semi-conductive qualities build it a standard accent in tobacco pipe smoking: a sheet of perforated aluminum foil is often placed between the coal and also the tobacco, permitting the tobacco to be heated while not coming back into direct contact with the burning coal.
Q: Why is aluminum foil shiny on one side?
A: The reason aluminum foil is shiny on one facet and boring on the opposite is very fascinating. Aluminum foil is created by rolling it between sequential steel rollers. every set of rollers squeezes the foil thinner. The last stage of rolling reduces the foil's thickness to a thousandth of an inch or maybe dilutant. The matter is so thin that the aluminum foil is simply too simple to tear throughout the last rolling stage.
So, for the last stage of rolling, two sheets of foil are placed face to face and passed through the ultimate set of rollers. Since the steel rollers are extremely polished, the foil faces that contact the rollers also are brocaded to a extremely shiny surface. Once rolling, the ensuing sheets are separated from one another. The surfaces of every foil that had faced one another are matte in texture, since they had solely been squeezes against one another, and not the polished rollers.
