Applications – Foil Products

The characteristics of Toyo Aluminium's aluminium foils include excellent surface glossiness, few pinholes and suitability for multicolor printing. They are used in a wide range of applications including as packaging materials for foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals and tobacco, in decorative applications and as daily necessity goods.

Food sector

Food sector Aluminium foils are used in a wide range of business sectors as a material that has both excellent practical utility and decorative effect, but their use in the sector of foodstuffs is the most familiar to consumers and they can be seen frequently in stores. The characteristics of aluminium foils are put to use, for example, they are used as packaging materials for storage without allowing the smell or aroma of the packaged contents to escape (impermeability to air) and as packaging materials for hotpots and frozen foods (heat conductivity).


Confectionery Chewing gum, chocolate, cakes, ice cream, sherbet, puddings, jelly, Bavarian cream, everyday desserts, snack foods, candy, Japanese sweets and other confectionery
Dairy products Cheese, butter, margarine, yogurt
Beverages Juices, carbonated beverages, lactic acid beverages, milk, processed milk, soy milk, supplement drinks, beer, sake, whisky, wine, alcohol, health drinks, black tea, coffee, cocoa, barley tea, Japanese tea, fresh cream, coffee creamers, powdered drinks
Instant foods Instant noodles, snack noodles, other instant foods, instant soups, instant miso soup, Japanese clear soup, seasonings (miso, soy sauce, soups, consommé, bouillon, spices), frozen foods, granular seasonings, granular seasonings for boiled rice with tea, retort foods
Others Health foods, dried foods, dried laver, other general foods, agricultural processed foods (jams, honey), processed seafood (dried laver, fish boiled in soy sauce, fish paste, food delicacies), prepared foods, ham, bacon, sausages

Medicines and chemical goods sector

Medicines and chemical goods sector Among the large number of packaging materials currently available, aluminium foil can be said to be an extremely hygienic packaging material and it is widely used for packaging pharmaceuticals. Aluminium foil is harmless and odorless and it is heated to high temperatures during its manufacturing processes, so any bacteria or microbes that may have attached to it are completely destroyed.


Pharmaceuticals General drugs and medicines, quasi-drugs (agents for halitosis prevention, bathwater additives, etc.)
Detergents and cosmetics Shampoos, conditioners, soaps, general purpose detergents, toothpastes, cosmetics, etc.
Others Films, light-sensitive paper, adhesives, photosensitive plates, other chemical products (agricultural chemicals, rubber products, etc.)

Electric equipment sector

Electric equipment sector Aluminium foils are also used widely in the electric equipment sector. In particular, aluminium electrolytic capacitors are commonly used in the electronics field because they have large capacitance but are compact and low cost. There are expectations for their use in the future in electric vehicles and hybrid cars.


Fin materials Fin materials for air conditioners and other products
Capacitors A wide variety of capacitors
Electric cord coverings Materials for electric cord coverings
Battery products Lithium-ion battery positive electrode current collectors, cladding materials for lithium-ion polymer batteries, explosion-proof valves, electric double-layer capacitor current collectors, tab materials, etc.
Others Electronic equipment, batteries, heaters, etc.

Industrial materials and construction materials sectors

Industrial materials and construction materials sectors In the industrial and construction materials sectors, the heat insulating properties of aluminium foils are utilized in their use as insulating materials for fire-resistance and for air conditioning construction materials and their beauty and workability are utilized in their use in shop decoration, displays and wall coverings.


Roofing materials, wall materials, heat insulating materials, materials for fittings such as sliding doors and shutters, reinforcing materials for roofing, ducts, side molding, shades, 2 x 4 construction materials
