The paper deals with the determination of the oxygen permeability and mechanical properties of butter and curd aluminium paper foils Radaflex applied in the food packaging. Foil Radaflex is a paper foil covered by the aluminium layer. The measurement of the oxygen permeability was realized according to the Standard STN EN 77 0333. The measurement of mechanical properties was realized according to the Standard STN EN ISO 1924-2. Determination of moduli of elasticity in the longitudinal and transversal direction were provided and tensile properties as maximal elongations, maximal tensile forces, tensile strengths, tensile indexes and strain at breaks of the longitudinal and transversal specimens were evaluated. The permeability of pure oxygen through aluminium paper foils was studied. Aluminium paper foil was not permeable for the oxygen.Keywords:
