Properties Of 8011 Aluminum Foil:

1. High-strength heat-treatable alloy with good heat resistance.

2. Good fatigue resistance and stress corrosion cracking resistance.

3. Good stiffness and specific strength.

4. Good machinability.

8011 Aluminum Foil Production Process:

1. Melting : The ingot is heated in a furnace to a temperature of around 730-760°C until it melts.

Melting of the ingot

2.Casting : Once the aluminium has melted, it is cast into large slabs. The slabs are then rolled into thinner sheets for the production of the final product.


3.Rolling: Aluminium sheets are rolled through a rolling mill to reduce their thickness and improve their uniformity.

hot rolling

4.Annealing: It involves heating the aluminium foil to a specific temperature and then cooling it slowly.


5.Processing: After annealing, the aluminium foil is trimmed to the required width and cut into rolls, which can be plain or coated with a thin layer of protective material.


6.Quality control: Measurement of the foil’s thickness, tensile strength, elongation, surface quality, etc..

8011 Aluminium Foil’s Wide Range Of Applications:

Bottle cap packaging:

8011 aluminium foil has good sealing properties and is compatible with and provides protection for a wide range of cap systems, including screw caps, crown caps, ROPP caps and other types of caps used in the beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Other alloys such as 3105 aluminium foil can also withstand high mechanical stress and are also suitable for bottle cap packaging. Yongsheng 8011 aluminium foil is usually used as white wine bottle caps, red wine bottle caps, cosmetic bottle caps, milk powder bottle caps, pharmaceutical bottle caps, beverage bottle caps, yoghurt bottle caps and so on. Its advantages are: food grade, drawing grade A.

Pharmaceutical packaging:

8011 aluminum foil and 8021 aluminum foil are high quality aluminum alloys that meet the requirements of the pharmaceutical industry. They insulate oxygen, light and moisture, effectively preventing pharmaceuticals from coming into contact with the outside air. They are widely used in blister packaging and cold forming packaging for tablets, capsules and pills. Yongsheng pharmaceutical aluminum foils have the advantages of high cupping value, high heat sealing strength, no pinholes and good sealing performance.

Most customers buy 8011-O foil and 8011-H18 foil for PTP drug packaging, cold press molding, pharmaceutical packaging, capsule foil and so on. In addition, 8011-H14 and 8011-H16 can be used to make wine caps, easy-open caps, medical bottle caps, and easy-tear milk powder caps. Most of the medical bottle caps are made of 8011-H16 aluminum foil, which is widely used for oral liquid. The same series of 8021 O and 8079 O aluminum foils with a thickness of 0.045 mm can also be used for tropical blister packaging, which is a popular purchase for pharmaceutical packaging production.

Sealing aluminum foil:

8011 aluminum foil is commonly used for sealing aluminium foil. The construction of sealing aluminum foil includes a heat sealing layer, aluminum foil, a weak adhesive layer, cardboard elastomer, and other components. It is mostly utilized in food, medicine, cosmetics, oil, detergent, hair care products, alcohol sealing gaskets, and so on. It has anti-leakage, freshness preservation, anti-deterioration, anti-counterfeiting, anti-theft, moisture-proof properties, and so on.
