Finest Mineral


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

Sillimanite is a naturally occurring mineral known for its exceptional heat resistance and high alumina content. It forms under high-temperature and pressure conditions and is used in refractories, ceramics, and foundry applications due to its ability to withstand extreme temperatures and provide mechanical strength. Sillimanite is prized for its role in enhancing the durability and performance of materials in demanding industrial environments.

Typical applications include

  • Refractories: Sillimanite’s exceptional heat resistance and resistance to thermal shock make it valuable for manufacturing refractory products, such as furnace linings and kiln furniture.
  • Ceramics: Used as a raw material in the production of high-temperature ceramics, including crucibles, spark plug insulators, and kiln components.
  • Foundry Industry: Employed as a molding material and core in the foundry industry to create precision metal castings due to its heat resistance and dimensional stability.
  • Glass Industry: Used in the glass industry to enhance the performance of glass melting furnaces and improve their longevity.
  • Metallurgy: Utilized as a refractory material in metal smelting and casting operations due to its ability to withstand extreme temperatures and chemical reactions.
  • Abrasives: In some cases, sillimanite can be processed into abrasive products used for sandblasting and grinding applications.
  • High-Temperature Insulators: Used as an electrical insulator in high-temperature electrical components and devices.
  • Construction: Sometimes added to refractory and high-temperature cement formulations for construction and industrial applications.
  • Environmental Applications: Utilized in water filtration systems and environmental remediation to remove impurities and purify water.
  • Oil and Gas Industry: Found in proppants used in hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for oil and gas extraction.
  • Mineralogy: Studied by mineralogists and geologists for its unique properties and geological significance.

Product Typical Characteristics

  1. Chemical Composition: Sillimanite is primarily composed of aluminum silicate minerals, with the chemical formula Al2SiO5.

  2. Crystal Structure: It crystallizes in the orthorhombic system and can form elongated, prismatic crystals.
  3. Color: Sillimanite is typically white, gray, greenish, or brown, depending on impurities and mineral variations.
  4. Hardness: It has a hardness ranging from 6 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale, making it relatively hard and durable.
  5. Density: Sillimanite typically has a density ranging from 3.2 to 3.25 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  6. Melting Point: Sillimanite has a high melting point, approximately 1,550 degrees Celsius (2,822 degrees Fahrenheit).
  7. Thermal Stability: Known for its excellent thermal stability, sillimanite remains stable even at extremely high temperatures.
  8. Refractory Properties: Sillimanite is prized for its use in refractory applications, where it can withstand temperatures in excess of 1,700 degrees Celsius (3,092 degrees Fahrenheit).
  9. Electrical Insulation: It serves as an electrical insulator in high-temperature and high-voltage applications.
  10. Heat Resistance: Sillimanite exhibits resistance to thermal shock, making it suitable for applications involving rapid temperature changes.
  11. Chemical Inertness: It is chemically inert and does not readily react with most chemicals, contributing to its durability.
  12. Dimensional Stability: Maintains dimensional stability under high-temperature conditions, reducing the risk of deformation or warping.
