GNPGraystar’s Calcined Alumina is Aluminum Oxide that has been heated to temperatures in excess of 1,050°C (1,900° F) to drive off nearly all chemically combined water. In this form, Alumina has great chemical purity, extreme hardness (9 on the Mohs scale, which diamond is a 10), high density, and a high melting point (slightly above 2,050° C [3,700° F]).
Typical Applications include spark plugs, tap washers, pump seals, electronic substrates , grinding media, abrasion resistant tiles, cutting tools, bioceramics (hip joints), body armor, laboratory ware, wear parts for the textile and paper industries, and more!
