Aluminium foil is aluminium prepared in thin metal leaves, with a thickness less than 0.2 millimetres (200 micron), although much thinner gauges down to 0.005 mm (5 micron) are commonly used. The foil is extremely pliable, and can be bent or wrapped around objects with ease. Aluminium foil is known as aluminum foil, and sometimes alternatively as al-foil or alu-foil.
