About Aluminum Oxide. Aluminum Oxide (a.k.a. Aluminum(III) Oxide, Alumina, Aloxide) is a white and crystalline powder. It occurs naturally in the form of many minerals such as bauxite and corundum. Aluminum oxide is amphoteric in nature, which allows it to be used in various chemical and industrial applications. Its properties may vary depending on the crystalline structure. Aluminum oxide is mainly used as adsorbent, desiccating agent, catalyst and is highly used in the manufacture of dental cements.
Chemical Formula. Al2O3
Commercial Grades. Technical grade; high purity; CP grade; fused; calcinated; fiber
Uses. Aluminum oxide is mainly employed in the aluminum production; electrical insulator; catalyst manufacture; ingredient in refractories/ceramics/abrasives; drying agent; gas and water vapor absorbent; lightbulbs; heat-resistant fibers; chromatographic analysis; viscosity control agent in cosmetics; pharmaceutical colorant; and paint filler.
