Alumina ceramic, Al2O3 aluminium oxide ceramics is an advance ceramic materials which used for the industry.It has excellent material properties over metal.

Aluminum oxide ceramics is very hard and resistant to wear, providing high compressive strength even in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments.Alumina is also an excellent electrical insulator and gas tight.

Typical Alumina property include:

Good strength and stiffness

Good hardness and wear resistance

Good corrosion resistance

Good thermal stability

Excellent dielectric properties (from DC to GHz frequencies)

Low dielectric constant

Low loss tangent



Alumina ceramic composition(Al2O3 purity 95% to 99.99%):

High purity alumina ceramics

99.99% Alumina ceramic; 99.9% Alumina ceramic,

Ordinary alumina ceramics

99.7% Alumina ceramic,99.5% Alumina ceramic,99% Alumina ceramic,97% Alumina ceramic,96% Alumina ceramic,95% Alumina ceramic

Note:different industries, different environments, different equipment, different products have different requirements on the composition of alumina, different alumina ceramic components have different performance and service life.

Alumina ceramics are currently classified into high-purity and ordinary types. High-purity alumina ceramics are ceramic materials with Al2O3 content above 99.9%; due to their sintering temperature as high as 1650-1990 ° C, the transmission wavelength is 1 ~ 6 & mu; m, generally made of molten glass to replace platinum crucible; Translucent and alkali-resistant metal corrosion are used as sodium lamps;

they can be used as integrated circuit substrates and high-frequency insulation materials in the electronics industry. Ordinary alumina ceramics are classified into 99% alumina ceramics, 95% alumina ceramics, 90 % alumina ceramics, 75% alumina ceramics, etc. according to the content of Al2O3. Sometimes the Al2O3 content is 80%; or 75% is also classified as ordinary alumina ceramic series.
