Alumina – Key Properties & Popular Applications
|High Hardness||Alumina has high wear resistance due to its high hardness. It also has good resistance to breaking and cracking due to its high fracture toughness and flexural strength.||
■Precision parts and components
■Jigs & fixtures
■Wear-resistant parts such as nozzles, pumps, valves and thread/wire guides.
■Heat insulation parts
■Crucibles & crucible liners
■Electric insulation parts
■High temperature electrical insulators
■Parts used in reactive gas environments such as gas distributors / showerheads, and chamber liners
■Parts for plasma chambers
■Cylinders and pistons
|High Temperature Resistance & Low Thermal Expansion||
Alumina has excellent thermal stability up to 1300 ℃. Because it is an oxide ceramic material, it can be used in oxidizing atmospheres at high temperatures.
Its low coefficient of thermal expansion makes it ideal for high temperature applications where dimensional stability is required.
|High Dielectric Strength||Alumina has excellent dielectric properties.|
|Good Chemical Resistance||Alumina has excellent corrosion resistance. It resists attack by most gases including acid gases. It is also plasma resistant.|
|Good Machinability||Alumina has a good machinability compared to other engineering ceramics. Because it has been a popular ceramic material, we have extensive experience in machining it. Machining to micron accuracy is possible.|
