Properties Of White Fused Aluminum Oxide

White fused aluminium oxide is a pure form of aluminium oxide which is appropriate for use with stainless steel and also with aluminium. This iron-free and reusable blasting medium are angular, stiff, and hard. It has an influential abrasive effect on the exterior being blasted. White fused aluminum oxide belongs to the assembly of fused alumina. White Aluminum Oxide is attached from high-purity alumina powder in an electric furnace at high temperatures. It has bright white colour, unexpected hardness, and sharp edges; it is extremely resistant to corrosion, and the chemical stability with a high bulk density and a very low porosity gives it unexpected volume stability and thermal resistance. It can be produced in an extensive array of sizes, from very large grains to micro-powders, and is perfect for an extensive range of abrasive applications. White fused aluminium oxide is produced by the grinding and classification of designated Macro grain feedstock in an advanced milling facility.

Physical properties of white fused aluminium oxide

  • It has a hardness of 9 Mohs
  • The Grain shape is angular
  • The Melting point is approximately 2050°C
  • The Specific gravity is approximately 4.0 g/cm3
  • The Bulk density is approximately 1.5 – 2.1 g/cm3

Applications of white fused aluminium oxide

  • It is used in Pressure blast systems and Injection blast cabinets
  • It is used in cleaning metallic surfaces with the removal of material like abrasive effect
  • It is used in removing rust and scale from the metallic surfaces
  • It is used in removing tempering colour
  • It is used in creating a matt finish on surfaces
  • It is used in producing specific visual effects
  • It is used in roughening metallic surfaces
  • It is used in creating a matt finish on glass
  • It is used in deburring
  • It is used in processing very hard components
