Compare to 8011 Aluminum

Differences between 8011-O and 3003 aluminum foil used for making food containers:

  • Strength and Hardness: 3003 aluminum foil has higher strength and hardness compared to 8011-O aluminum foil. This means that 3003 aluminum foil may be stronger and more suitable for applications that require higher strength and resistance to deformation.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Due to its copper content, 3003 aluminum foil has better corrosion resistance, particularly in acidic and alkaline environments. While 8011-O aluminum foil also has good corrosion resistance, it may be slightly inferior to 3003 aluminum foil in specific corrosive conditions.
  • Application of Food Containers: Both 8011-O and 3003 aluminum foils are widely used for food container manufacturing. 8011-O aluminum foil is commonly used for making disposable food containers, take-out containers, and oven food packaging. On the other hand, 3003 aluminum foil is often used for making more durable and reusable food containers, such as those used in hotels and restaurants.
  • Processability: Both 8011-O and 3003 aluminum foils have good processability and can undergo folding, forming, and cutting processes. However, due to its higher strength, 3003 aluminum foil may require more force and processing techniques to achieve specific container shapes.
  • Cost and Price: The cost and price of 8011-O and 3003 aluminum foils are influenced by market dynamics, raw material costs, and other factors. In general, 3003 aluminum foil may be relatively more expensive due to its higher strength and corrosion resistance properties.
