Household aluminum foil thickness

Its thickness is required to be less than 0.025mm, that is, less than 25 microns. The thickness of normal household aluminum foil is 10-20 microns. If you use to wrap the food, 10 micron is enough. If you use for grilling fish or other meat, the chosen thickness can be 20 micron.

According to the thickness, the cooking aluminum foil can be divided into standard dudy aluminum foil, heavy-duty aluminum foil and extra heavy duty foil. Most standard duty aluminum foil rolls are economical foil rolls for commercial and home use. The thickness is between 0.0004-0.0007mm thick.

Heavy duty aluminum foil provides extra strength and tear resistance. Many cooks use it for baking, grilling, and storage. Its thickness is between 0.0008-0.001mm thick. Most Most extra heavy duty aluminum foil is between 0.0011 thick and 0.0016 mm thick.

How to test aluminum foil thickness

The easiest way to measure the thickness of the aluminum foil is with a micrometer. If you don’t have this tool, there is a simple way to roughly calculate the thickness. Use a ruler to measure the length and width (cm) of the foil. Crush the foil into small balls or fold it into a small shape and place it on a milligram scale to find the weight. Use this formula to get a result: aluminum foil thickness= aluminum foil weight/(lenth x width x aluminum density).
