Aluminum Oxide Description

Alumina (Al2O3) Description

Alumina (Aluminum oxide), Al2O3 has very high melting point, which is 2,072 °C and it is extremely hard. Alumina ceramic is the most common technical material and relatively traditional ceramic. High purity alumina has excellent performances in electrical insulation, high chemical resistance, and low thermal expansion.

Alumina can be produced in a range of purities with additives designed to enhance properties. A wide variety of ceramic processing methods can be applied including machining or net shape forming to produce a wide variety of sizes and shapes of component. In addition, it can be readily joined to metals or other ceramics using metallising and brazing techniques.
