My 99.8% Alumina ceramic is the representative material of today’s technical ceramics. Similar to sapphire, 99.8% Alumina ceramic is comprised of corundum crystals. 99.8% Alumina is manufactured with our SFG (Small, Fine Grain) technology and thus it has outstanding properties as an industrial material.
With a hardness next to diamond, boron carbide and silicon carbide, my 99.8% Alumina ceramic with SFG technology has superior wear resistance.
99.8% Alumina ceramic has excellent high insulation resistance at elevated temperatures, high dielectric strength at high voltage, and low dielectric loss tangent at high frequencies.
99.8% Alumina ceramic is inert to oxidation, is not corroded by chemical agents and is not subject to radiation damage.
