Default Is This Foil HD?

I bought some foil recently, but I don't know if it's HD or regular. They are perfect for hookah. 1 sheet can give 2 sessions each when cut in half (if they are not HD). That's 1000 uses. If it IS HD though, that would mean no doubling it. Therefore, 1 sheet will give you 4 perfect sized squares. 2000 uses.

According to some of the reviews, it say's they are really thin. So I would say no for HD foil, but perfect for hookah smoking! Get a box, lets know!

I actually have the box in front of me. It doesn't say anything about HD, but it looks alot different than the precut hookah foil some people sell. I think that I might do a quick video of how I am cutting it and everything.

Look at the thickness, should be on the box.
I think Reynolds wrap HD is .024 inches thick.

There is no indication whatsoever about thickness. Anyway, the vid just finished uploading!

That still sounds like a great deal. Even if you have to use 2 sheets for every bowl thats still 2000 bowls worth

Did you check out the vid? 1 sheet will give 2 bowls if it is double layered. 1000 uses if it is double layered. 2000 if it is not.

this is a bit of a tangent, but I read on a site that normal foil contains carcinogens that are released when you smoke with it. Then again, this was also on a page selling precut "hookah foil". Anyone have any insight to this?

That can't be good! I sure hope it's incorrect. 2000 uses of carcinogenic foil?

If you melt it, or start to decompose the foil. That takes really impressive heat. Like well over what the coals burn at.

Burning Aluminum foil releases oxides that bind with the water when you smoke through it. However, the coals will not burn hot enough for this to happen, and if it did, the water would cancel it out.

Also, sounds like you got that from a site trying to sell their own brand of foil which is just a marketing ploy.

If you think about it, although sketchy, it's a good idea.

Yeah, sketchy is right. Especially when I can get a 200sq ft roll of foil at the local grocery store for around $6.

I hate the term "aluminum chips". Let's boycott them.
Edit: Watched the video, you have a nice camera :3. That foil looks regular duty, not heavy. Just my guess, doubling it up would be perfect. Good deal.

Does everybody only use HD? I use one layer of normal foil all the time on shisha i know that doesn't burn that bad, or I just watch my temp a little more.

I do double layer sometimes with normal foil buts its usually with Hookah Hookah or something.

I use HD foil as well... It really just comes down to what I feel like each session.

I own and use these sometimes.... (from Hookah-shisha.com)

They are no way Heavy Duty they feel extra thin, But again I use one layer of them all the time with no problems. It did take me one time of burning the shisha with the thin foil, to learn to heat manage it a little different.

Me too. I use the cheapest stuff I can find, and only use one layer.

We have a big role of almost a 1000 ft of thin foil. I rip of a peace and fold it double... works perfectly.
