Is there a food grade aluminum sheet?

Food grade aluminum is a 3004 aluminum alloy plate, which is mainly used as metal packaging material in the form of thin plate and foil and is made into cans, lids, bottles, barrels, and packaging foils. Widely used in beverages, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, industrial products, and another packaging.

In addition to 3004 food grade aluminum sheets, 5182 aluminum sheet and 5042 aluminum sheet are also used as food grade aluminum sheets. For example, for food-grade cans, the body and bottom of the can are made of 3004 aluminum alloy, the lid is made of 5182 aluminum alloy, and the pull ring is made of 5042 aluminum alloy. It will not cause any harm to the human body.

Is industrial aluminum equal to food grade aluminum?

Both are aluminum alloy substrates, and the biggest difference is that the two alloying elements have different standards. Food grade must have corresponding heavy metal control testing and other quality control standards to meet the standards that are harmless to the human body.
