English term or phrase: industrial foil

German translation:Industriefolie
Explanation:
industrial foil comprises all sorts of foils (believe it or not I even found reference to tobacco-coated foils...), I found the term Industriefolien in some contexts

for instance:

www2.tagesspiegel.de/archiv/1997/09/19/au200997.html

since it is silver you might still translate it with Alufolie, but perhaps they would have used aluminum foil in the English text if that was what they meant

good luck with your translation

Alufolie


Explanation:
Das kommt wohl hin. Wenn du klar machen möchtest, dass es keine gewöhnliche Alufolie ist, könntest du vielleicht "extra starke Alufolie" (industrial strength) sagen.
