Ceramic Properties - Alumina 99.5%
Alumina represents the most commonly utilized ceramic material in industry. Purity levels are available from 85% through 99.9%. This is because of extremely superior abrasion, high temperature and chemical resistance. It is electrically insulating as well. This material has an excellent cost to part life performance record for ceramic parts.
Applications include wear and heat resistant liners, mechanical and pump seals, nozzles, semiconductor equipment components, insulators, etc.
