What is electronic aluminum foil

Electronic aluminum foil is a kind of aluminum foil processed by a series of rolling, cleaning and cutting processes of high-purity aluminum ingots. It is a key raw material for the production of aluminum electrolytic capacitors.

After the aluminum material is processed into foil, the electronic aluminum foil undergoes surface corrosion treatment and re-oxidation treatment, and then is wound to make a capacitor. The aluminum foil before corrosion is called light foil, the aluminum foil after corrosion is called corrosion foil, and the aluminum foil after re-oxidation is called finished foil.

Electronic Aluminum Foil

Electronic aluminum foil refers to light foil and is a key raw material for the production of aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Due to the sequence of the production process, it is divided into electronic aluminum foil and electrode foil. The electrode foil includes corrosion foil and chemical foil.

Electronic aluminum foil and electrolyte together account for 30%-70% of the raw material cost of aluminum electrolytic capacitors (varying with the size of the capacitor). It can store electrical energy and can be used as the positive and negative electrodes of electrolytic capacitors.

Classification of electronic aluminum foil

Electronic aluminum foil can be divided into high-voltage anode foil, low-voltage anode foil, negative electrode foil, etc. The high-voltage anode foil is corroded like pillar holes, the low-voltage anode foil is corroded like sponge, and the anode foil in the medium-voltage section is corroded like moths.

High-voltage anode foil can be divided into two categories, one is high-quality high-voltage foil; the other is ordinary high-voltage foil. The characteristics of high-quality high-voltage anode foil are “two high and one thin”, that is, high purity, high cubic texture and thin surface oxide film.

This type of product is of high quality, but the cost is high. The aluminum purity is >99.99%, the cubic texture is 96%, and the vacuum heat treatment is carried out under the conditions of 10-3pa ~ 10-5Pa. Ordinary high-voltage anode foil is an economical and practical high-voltage anode foil. The aluminum purity is >99.98%, the cubic texture is >92%, and the vacuum heat treatment is carried out under the conditions of 10-1pa ~ 10-2pa.

Technical analysis of electronic aluminum foil

The production of electronic aluminum foil is a precision processing process, and the quality of the product has an important relationship with the advanced level of raw materials, control systems, and production equipment.

From a global perspective, although China’s electronic aluminum foil production is developing rapidly, European and American companies still have advantages in advanced technology, especially in high-voltage electronic aluminum foil.

Since electronic aluminum foil products have strict requirements on process technology, equipment technology and production management level, production must strictly follow the process flow and equipment characteristics to produce qualified products.

In recent years, with the advancement of science and technology, the main equipment used in the production of electronic aluminum foil products has been domestically produced. Nowadays, domestic electronic aluminum foil factories use domestic equipment to produce products, and the quality level has caught up with or even exceeded the products produced by Japan and South Korea.

In the choice of control system, the technology possessed by major domestic manufacturers is not very mature, and most of them choose foreign control systems. In terms of technology, domestic production lines and production processes still imitate and continue to use foreign technology, or choose a technical model of cooperation with foreign capital.

In order to continuously improve the product characteristics of aluminum electrolytic capacitors, my country has made many related technical improvements in aluminum foil processing. The use of high-purity, high-performance aluminum foil materials greatly improves the corrosion performance of the material, and at the same time greatly reduces the leakage current of the dielectric oxide film formed;

The development of advanced corrosion and formation processes further increases the specific capacity of the cathode and anode aluminum foils, and the anodic light The leakage current of the foil is further reduced. In order to realize the volume reduction and flattening of capacitors, the processing technology of high specific volume and high strength of chemically formed aluminum foil has made progress in recent years.

How to tell whether aluminum foil is good or bad?

1. Aluminum foil bumps
▲Aluminum foil bruises refer to the damage caused to the surface or end face of the foil after it collides with other objects during transportation or storage. Bruises are mostly caused by carelessness when packaging aluminum foil.

Aluminum Foil Bumps

2. Corrosion
▲The surface of the aluminum foil is in contact with the surrounding medium, and after a chemical reaction or electrochemical reaction occurs, defects will be generated on the surface of the aluminum foil, the surface of the corroded aluminum foil will lose its luster, and gray corrosion products will be produced in severe cases. The corroded aluminum foil will have a great impact on the aesthetics of the products produced by the terminal.

3. Surface air bubbles
▲Aluminum foil with surface bubble defects will have irregular circular or strip-shaped cavities on the surface of the foil; the edges of the protrusions are smooth, the two sides are asymmetrical, and the distribution is irregular. Unbalanced force is likely to cause breakage and shutdown.

4. Dark side stripes
▲Dark side stripes mostly appear on double-joint products. There are obvious light and dark stripes along the rolling direction on the dark side, which affects the appearance.

5.Imprints
▲ There are many situations that will cause marks on the surface of the aluminum foil, such as defects on the surface of the roller or guide roller or dirt such as metal shavings stuck on the surface, the surface of the sleeve or tube core is not clean or there are smooth bumps in the area, or the foil is rolled when it is coiled.There are foreign objects stuck on the surface, etc. There are usually single or periodic depressions or ridges on the surface of the foil where marks appear, which are easy to identify.

9. Poor plate shape
▲Due to uneven deformation, local unevenness occurs on the surface of the foil, which is called poor shape. According to the location where the defect occurs, it is divided into middle waves, edge waves, two-rib waves and compound waves.The waves on the sides are called side waves (as shown in the figure), and the waves in the middle are called middle waves. Both are called compound waves, and waves that are neither in the middle nor on the sides are called two-ribbed waves.

10. Adhesion
▲A single sheet of aluminum foil roll is not easy to open, and when multiple sheets are opened, it will be hardened, and the free-falling length of the product cannot meet the standard requirements. In serious cases, the single sheet cannot be opened, and the adhesion of aluminum foil will seriously affect the production of products.
