Finest Mineral


Malli Minerals International is a professionally managed enterprise actively engaged in the supplying of Alumina Minerals to global market.

Alumina, also known as aluminum oxide (Al2O3), is a versatile industrial ceramic material recognized for its exceptional hardness, heat resistance, and electrical insulation properties. Derived from bauxite ore through refining processes, alumina serves as a vital precursor for various applications. It finds extensive use in industries such as metallurgy, ceramics, electronics, and abrasives, contributing to the production of everything from high-strength aluminum alloys to advanced ceramics and semiconductor components. Its wide-ranging applications showcase the significance of alumina in modern manufacturing and technology.

Typical applications include

  • Metallurgy: Alumina is used as a raw material in the production of aluminum metal, where it undergoes electrolytic reduction to extract pure aluminum. It is also used as a refractory material in high-temperature processes like metal smelting.
  • Ceramics: Alumina’s high hardness, wear resistance, and electrical insulation properties make it a key component in advanced ceramics, including cutting tools, spark plugs, and ceramic substrates for electronics.
  • Electronics: Alumina is used as a substrate material in the electronics industry, particularly in the manufacture of integrated circuits (ICs) and semiconductor devices, due to its electrical insulating properties and thermal conductivity.
  • Abrasives: It is employed as an abrasive material in the production of grinding wheels, sandpapers, and abrasive belts for precision machining and surface finishing applications.
  • Refractories: Alumina is used in refractory products like furnace linings, crucibles, and insulating bricks due to its high heat resistance and resistance to chemical corrosion.
  • Medical Implants: Biocompatible alumina ceramics are used in the production of medical implants such as hip joint replacements and dental crowns due to their durability and biocompatibility.
  • Seal Rings and Bearings: Alumina ceramics are used in high-performance mechanical components like seal rings and bearings for their wear resistance and dimensional stability.
  • Thermocouple Tubes: Alumina tubes are used to protect and insulate thermocouples in high-temperature measurement applications.
  • Catalyst Supports: Alumina’s high surface area and chemical stability make it a suitable support material for catalysts in various chemical processes.
  • Grinding Media: Alumina balls and beads are used in grinding and milling applications, particularly in the pharmaceutical and paint industries.
  • Insulators: Alumina insulators are used in high-voltage electrical equipment and power transmission systems due to their electrical insulating properties.
  • Environmental Applications: Alumina finds use in environmental applications, including water purification, as a support for catalysts in emission control systems, and as a component in sensors for environmental monitoring.

Product Typical Characteristics

  • Chemical Composition: Alumina is primarily composed of aluminum oxide (Al2O3), with high purity grades available for specialized applications.
  • Crystal Structure: Alumina exhibits different crystal structures, including alpha (α), gamma (γ), and theta (θ), depending on processing conditions and temperature.
  • Color: Pure alumina is typically white, but it can be various shades of white, pink, or brown due to impurities.
  • Hardness: Alumina is exceptionally hard and ranks 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
  • Density: It has a density typically ranging from 3.9 to 4.0 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  • Melting Point: Alumina has a high melting point of approximately 2,072 degrees Celsius (3,782 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Heat Resistance: Known for its excellent heat resistance, alumina maintains its structural integrity at high temperatures.
  • Electrical Insulation: Alumina is an excellent electrical insulator, making it valuable in electronic and electrical applications.
