Success story: Anderol® DDO

A Chinese aluminium foil maker specializing in the production of pharmaceutical and household aluminum foils has recently made the switch to Anderol® DDO. The 3H food grade dough divider oil typically used for bakery applications, can also be used in the forming and rolling of aluminium foil. In this case it has been used to coat to the aluminum foil through an electrostatic oiling process ensuring consistent uniformity of the coated foil.

The aluminum foil products produced by the company are exported worldwide to Europe, America, Australia, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The company’s self-developed, single-sided, cold forming composite medicinal aluminium foil has been recognized as a key new product by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Commerce, the National Supervision and Quarantine Bureau and the State Environmental Protection Administration. The aluminium foil products have also passed US FDA certification as food and drug packaging materials, therefore using the right lubricant to ensure full conformance and product safety is of paramount importance.

Anderol® DDO is NSF 3H registered and formulated with edible vegetable oils, high quality sunflower lecithin which is acting as emulsifier and antioxidant. Its excellent oxidation and thermal stability performance in high temperature conditions is also perfectly suited to the environment found within the aluminium foil processing plant. Moreover, its natural polarity, viscosity and adherence yield a high lubricant power preventing premature wear of moving parts of the machines used in the plant.
