Aluminum circle for kitchen utensils

May 27, 2021

The aluminum circle for kitchen utensils takes up a large share in the aluminium disc industry. The four main application fields of alu circles are kitchen utensils, cooking utensils, lamps and traffic signs. Among them kitchen utensils are the most traditional and common. In fact, aluminium has been a popular kitchen utensil material since the 20th century. A kitchen utensils aluminum circle is usually less than 500mm big, and 2mm thick, for most utensils are very small. The largest might be strainers, for which 500mm is enough. Some clients can do with only 0.6mm thickness. Alloys for the utensils include 1050, 1060, 1070, 1100 and 3003, satisfying requirements of all levels of products.

Aluminium is applied to kitchen utensils first because of its good thermal conductivity, which is approximately an order of magnitude greater than that of steel and weaker than copper. But copper can not compete with the other two, since it rusts easily and its rust is red that colors foods quickly. The second reason for popularity of kitchen aluminum circle for utensils is the large share of aluminium element in the earth’s crust and the development of pure aluminum production. In the late 19th century scientists begun exploring large-scale separation of aluminium from oxide aluminium, the natural state of aluminium in the crust. At that time aluminium tableware was even more precious than gold tableware, for it was extremely hard and slow to get pure aluminium. Soon that became history. Aluminium, with low toxicity and strong corrosion resistance, entered the households of common people. However, aluminium can be dissolved by acidic foods (to a comparatively small extent), and reacts to alkaline soaps if they are used for cleaning a utensil. Therefore, the circles are usually anodized in advance to improve the utensils’ resistance to acid and alkaline materials.
