Aluminum oxide Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

  • Characteristics Aluminum Oxide (Alumina) is the most widely used oxide, chiefly because it is plentiful, relatively low in cost, and equal to or better than most oxides in mechanical properties. Density can be varied over a wide range, as can purity — down to about 90% alumina — to meet specific application requirements. Alumina ceramics are the hardest, strongest, and stiffest of the oxides. They are also outstanding in electrical resistivity, dielectric strength, are resistant to a wide variety of chemicals, and are unaffected by air, water vapor, and sulfurous atmospheres. However, with a melting point of only 2039°C, they are relatively low in refractoriness, and at 1371°C retain only about 10% of room-temperature strength. In addition to its wide use as electrical insulators and its chemical and aerospace applications, the high hardness and close dimensional tolerance capability of alumina make this ceramic suitable for such abrasion-resistant parts as textile guides, pump plungers, chute linings, discharge orifices, dies, and bearings.
  • Definition A mineral form of aluminiumoxide, Al2O3. It crystallizesin the trigonal system and occurs aswell-developed hexagonal crystals. Itis colourless and transparent whenpure but the presence of other elementsgives rise to a variety ofcolours. Ruby is a red variety containingchromium; sapphire is ablue variety containing iron andtitanium. Corundum occurs as arock-forming mineral in both metamorphicand igneous rocks. It ischemically resistant to weatheringprocesses and so also occurs in alluvial(placer) deposits. The secondhardest mineral after diamond (it hasa hardness of 9 on the Mohs’ scale), itis used as an abrasive.
  • Agricultural Uses Alumina is a white or colorless oxide occurring in two forms, a-alumina and γ-alumina. The γ-alumina turns into a stable a form on heating. Naturally occurring alumina is called corundum or emery.
    The gemstones ruby and sapphire are aluminum oxides colored by minute traces of chromium and cobalt, respectively. The highly protective film of oxide formed on the surface of aluminum is yet another structural variation, a defective form of rock salt.
    Pure aluminum oxide is obtained by dissolving bauxite ore in sodium hydroxide solution to eliminate insoluble impurities. Seeding the solution with material from a previous batch precipitates the hydrated oxide, which on further heating gives γ-alumina at 500 to 800°C and pure a-alumina at 1150 to 1200°C. The latter is one of the hardest materials known. It is used widely as an abrasive substance in both its natural and synthetic forms. Its refractory nature makes alumina bricks an ideal material for furnace linings and high temperature cements.
    Alumina occurs in phosphate rocks along with iron and other impurities in small percentages. Alumina and iron in phosphate rock make the superphosphate moist and sticky. The maximum acceptable alumina and iron in the rock for farming is 3 to 4 %
  • Materials Uses Fused aluminum oxide was the second synthetic abrasive to be developed. Synthetic aluminum oxide (alumina) is made as a white powder and can be somewhat harder than corundum (natural alumina) because of its purity. However, corundum has a Mohs hardness of approximately 9 (on a scale of 1 to 10. Alumina can be processed with different properties by slight alteration of the reactants in the manufacturing process. Several grain sizes of alumina are available, and alumina has largely replaced emery for several abrasive uses. Aluminum oxide is widely used to make bonded abrasives, coated abrasives, and air-propelled grit abrasives for dental applications.
    Sintered aluminum oxide is used to make white stones, which are popular for adjusting dental enamel and finishing metal alloys, resin-based composites, and ceramic materials.
    Pink and ruby variations of aluminum oxide abrasives are made by adding chromium compounds to the original melt. These variations are sold in a vitreous-bonded form as noncontaminating mounted stones for the preparation of metal– ceramic alloys to receive porcelain. Remnants of these abrasives and other debris should be removed from the surface of metals used for metal–ceramic bonding so as not to prevent optimal bonding of porcelain to the metal alloy. A review by Yamamoto (see Selected Reading) suggests that carbide burs are the most effective instruments for finishing this type of alloy because they do not contaminate the metal surface with entrapped abrasive particles.
    CORUNDUM: This mineral form of aluminum oxide is usually white. Its physical properties are inferior to those of manufactured alpha (α) aluminum oxide (Al2O3), which has largely replaced corundum in dental applications. Corundum is used primarily for grinding metal alloys and is available as a bonded abrasive in several shapes. It is most commonly used in an instrument known as a white stone.
