Over 116,000 tons of alumina powder produced in 6 months

Iran has produced 116,193 tons of alumina powder during the first six months of the current Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22).

As reported, the figure shows five percent decline as compared to the output in the six-month period of the previous year.

Aluminum oxide, which is commonly called alumina, is an inert, odorless, white amorphous material often used in industrial ceramics.

Alumina is an important ceramic material for industrial applications. The numerous fields of application range from construction materials, to filling materials, as well as abrasives and catalysts.
In plants and mechanical engineering, alumina ceramics are mainly used for wear and corrosion protection.

The particle size distribution largely determines the application range and the quality of an alumina powder. Reliably identifying the differences in particle size is therefore an essential requirement of the measuring instrument.
