Aluminum Oxide


Aluminum Oxide has been widely used for most applications in the forming section of the paper machine for many years. It provides good flexural strength and toughness with moderate hardness, elastic modulus and thermal conductivity. Additionally, the lower cost associated with alumina powder production and sintering power requirements versus other ceramic material choices provides aluminum oxide with a good cost to benefit ratio. Typical applications include well lubricated sections of the forming section on slower machines or machines without a large amount of abrasive materials as fillers.
