Al2O3 alumina is a white and opaque high performance ceramic with exceptional physical characteristics. It is very temperature resistant and offers an excellent mechanical strength. The material, also called aluminum oxide, offers excellent electrical insulation properties, has a low dissipation factor, and a tremendous dielectric strength. These properties enable the use in high voltage electrical applications.
The mechanical characteristics of advanced Al2O3 ceramic materials are also remarkable. Hence, aluminum oxide materials are often used when components must withstand strong mechanical wear as Al2O3 offers an excellent wear resistance. So due to its superior tribological much longer lifetimes of parts and workpieces can be achieved with Al2O3. Furthermore, the chemical strength of alumina is considerable. It can resist most acids and alkalis even at increased temperatures.
Since aluminum oxide materials can be ground using conventional abrasive tools on conventional CNC-machines, the manufacturing of complex workpieces based on this special ceramic material is possible. The potential complexity of the components manufactured of aluminum oxide is limited only by the machinery used, so even precision workpieces with a complex structure can be produced of Al2O3 aluminum oxide.
