What is Spherical Aluminum Oxide Al2O3 Used For?

Diamonds are forever, Gold is precious but which is rarer? Gold is a heavy metal formed during the collision of neutron stars and is one of the rarest elements on Earth.During the formation of the earth, heavy elements gradually accumulated towards the core under the influence of the earth's gravitational force. This means that the closer you get to the Earth's crust, the harder it is to find large quantities of gold.The average concentration of gold in Earth's crust is "very, very low" at just 4 parts per billion. Gold concentrations need to be 1,250 times that level to form a market-worthy deposit.
Diamond is a common element - the spherical Al2O3 powder is undoubtedly a good investment opportunity.

What is Aluminum Oxide Al2O3?
Aluminum oxide is a kind of inorganic with the chemical formula Al2O3. It is a high hardness compound.
It is a white solid insoluble in water, odorless, tasteless, and extremely hard. The melting point is 2054 and the boiling point is 2980. Aluminum oxide is a typical amphoteric oxide, soluble in inorganic acid and alkaline solutions, almost insoluble in water and non-polar organic solvents.
What is Aluminum Oxide Al2O3 used for?
Aluminum oxide, which is chemically inert and white, is the preferred filler for plastics.  Aluminum oxide is a common ingredient in sunscreen and is sometimes found in cosmetics such as blush, lipstick and nail polish. 
Many glass formulations contain aluminum oxide as an ingredient. Aluminosilicate glass is a common type of glass that usually contains 5 to 10 percent aluminum oxide. 
Aluminum oxide catalyzes a variety of reactions useful in industry. In its largest application, aluminum oxide is used as a catalyst in the Krauss process to convert hydrogen sulfide exhaust gas into elemental sulfur in refineries. It can also be used to dehydrate alcohols into alkenes. 
Aluminum oxide can be used as catalyst carrier for many industrial catalysts, such as those used for hydrodesulfurization and some Ziegler-Natta polymerization reactions. 
Gas purification 
Aluminum oxide is widely used to remove water from the air stream.
Aluminum oxide is used for its hardness and strength. Its natural form corundum has a Mohs hardness of 9 (slightly lower than diamond). It is widely used as an abrasive, including as a cheap substitute for industrial diamonds. Many types of sandpaper use aluminum oxide crystals.
In addition, its low insulation and low specific heat make it widely used in grinding operations, especially cutting tools. As a powdery abrasive mineral, Arroite is, along with silica, the main component of the "chalk" used in billiard balls at the tip of the cue. 
Aluminum oxide powder is used in some CD/DVD polishing and scratch repair kits. Its polished quality is also the reason it's used in toothpaste. It is also used in microdermabrasion, either in machine-processed procedures provided by dermatologists and beauticians, or as a manual skin abrasive according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
Aluminum oxide flakes are used in coatings to produce a reflective decorative effect, for example in the automotive or cosmetic industries. 
Composite fiber
Aluminum oxide has been used in a number of experimental and commercial fiber materials for high-performance applications.
What is Spherical Aluminum Oxide Al2O3?
Spherical aluminum oxide is a kind of aluminum oxide powder material which is calcined by high temperature melt injection of irregular high purity aluminum oxide, and then obtained by screening and purification. 
The product has high thermal conductivity, high insulation, high hardness, high temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, wear resistance and other properties, and has good fluidity, low oil absorption value, high spheroidization rate, high α phase content, small specific surface area, controllable particle size distribution and other unique and excellent characteristics. 
Spherical aluminum oxide is widely used in thermal interface materials, thermal engineering plastics and aluminum base copper clad plate filler.
What are Spherical Aluminum Oxide Al2O3 Properties?
High fill 
With high sphericity and controllable particle size distribution, silica gel and epoxy can be filled with high density to obtain a mixture with low viscosity and good fluidity. 
High thermal conductivity 
Because of its spherical appearance, it can achieve multi-directional heat transfer, good dispersion in the system, and high thermal conductivity of thermal conductive products; 
Low wear and tear" 
Because of its ball-shaped appearance, the wear of mixer, molding machine and other equipment is reduced and the service life of equipment is prolonged.  
What is Spherical Aluminum Oxide Al2O3 Used For?
Thermal interface material 
Thermal conductive silicone gasket, thermal conductive silicone grease, thermal conductive potting adhesive, thermal conductive double-sided adhesive, phase changing materials, etc.
Thermal engineering plastics 
LED lamp shade, switch housing, electronic product housing, heat dissipation components of electrical products (heat sink, filler for heat dissipation substrate, MC substrate), etc.
Thermal conductive aluminum base copper clad plate 
High power LED circuit board, power circuit board, etc.
