Expanded aluminium foil from the Expanded Metal Company is available as coils, cut-to-size sheets and formed bespoke components, and is suitable for a range of applications.

The aluminium mesh is manufactured using expanding techniques and patented machinery.

Among its uses, aluminium foil is layered into filter panels to capture dust and grease for both internal and external air filtration.

The product offers a range of features that have been adapted to suit an array of functional applications, including heat spacers in the automotive industry, anti-explosive products and components for grease, air and oil filtration.

The product is also utilised as explosion-suppression safety foil, commonly used in fuel storage tanks for petrol and aviation fuel at airports, as well as helicopter landing pads.

Testing by the Ministry of Defence has proven that storage tanks filled with fuel and aluminium foil are able to withstand bullet and shrapnel penetration as well as direct combustion without actually exploding.

A further advantage is minimum displacement of only 0.95 per cent of volume filled.
