Tin foil is a versatile material, which is used in various packaging applications such as wrappers, household foil, pouches, blister packs, and lids. It is recyclable and therefore represents a beneficial opportunity for manufacturers as increasing recovery & collection rates for product mean less production cost along with improved profitability. It possess significant characteristics including better thermal & electrical conductivity, non-absorptive to grease, water, light, and oil, superior formability, and fine adhesive ability to the mixture of composite & confrontation to chemical or oxidation attacks. It acts as resistor to gases, bacteria, odor, moisture, and molds. Tin foil offers safety adjacent to the heat. Opacity is a prominent feature that helps in deterrence to corrosion of huge range of drink & food products which are affected by the light. As it possesses various properties, it is the most favored packaging material. It is used in varied end-use industries such as food, cosmetics, insulation, pharmaceuticals, electronics, automotive components, geochemical sampling and others. The major channel of distribution for packaging & industrial tin foil is direct distribution channel. Tin foil is sold directly to end users, who further process the foil to manufacture products for instance pie pans, containers, heat exchanger fins, household foils, and thermal insulation wraps.
