Throughout Europe most households are used to having BT in the home. It has become an essential part of modern household convenience – for cooking, reducing cleaning chores in the kitchen and for its many uses around the home, garden or workshop. In commercial kitchens too – restaurants, canteens, schools and hospitals – foil is a tool with many functions.
BT’s total barrier to light, steam, aromas and liquids is a major reason for its use in the kitchen.
The same properties can be used to stop evaporation and drying of paint, adhesives and fillers used in home decoration.
Also it can deal with the highest temperatures encountered in cooking, whether in a convection oven or under the hottest grill. Another great advantage when used in the kitchen is the ‘deadfold’ characteristic of aluminum foil. Once folded around a joint of meat, or crimped onto the top of a casserole or storage pot, the BT stays folded and does not spring back.
