Aluminum oxide to which chromium oxide was added during the furnace process results in pink fused aluminum. In comparison to white aluminum oxide, the grain toughness of aluminum oxide increases just slightly when chromium oxide is included into the crystal structure. Friability also somewhat decreases. More aggressive, cutting-powerful, and durable than white fused aluminum oxide.
Pink fused aluminum oxide is produced using the same fundamental raw materials and industrial processes as white aluminum oxide. It is tougher than white corundum and has a rougher surface than white aluminum oxide. It is suitable for grinding low-roughness products including screws, meters, measuring tools, and blades.
High grade aluminum oxide and chromium oxide are fused to create pink fused alumina. The amount of chromium oxide used has an impact on the finished product’s color and grain hardness. Harder grain is produced when chromium oxide additions are produced more frequently.
For creating vitrified bonded abrasives that allow grinding on hardened steels and alloys with high tensile strength, pink fused aluminum oxide works well. Typically, pink aluminum oxide is utilized for honing and grinding operations. Along with non-ferrous metals, paints, wood, and synthetic materials, pink aluminum oxide can be used to treat brass, bronze, copper, and zinc.
Due to its high aluminum oxide content, which also gives it a very high refractory temperature, it can be utilized in the production of abrasive tools, refractory materials, sandblasting, water-jet industries involved in cutting, making steel, metallurgy, casting, foundries, and ceramics.
Sanding belts, abrasive tools, sand paper, and sand cloth are just a few of the applications for pink fused aluminum oxide. It is possible to utilize sandblasting, polishing, and grinding on both metal and non-metal surfaces.
