Alumina Beads / Grinding Media

High purity alumina beads for grinding and dispersing media


0.2mm

The high purity alumina beads that
we developed are characterized by excellent

abrasion resistance and high purity.
 

Features

1. Excellent abrasion resistance
When the high hardness ceramics is ground,
abrasion resistance is higher than
the zirconia beads.

2. High purity
The purity of the alumina beads is 99.99% or more.
When grinding, no contamination other than alumina.
It is suitable for grinding and dispersion of the electronic material that dislikes mixing
the radioisotope.

3. Excellent corrosion resistance
It is excellent in corrosion resistance to the acid and the alkali.
There is no performance deterioration to the warm water.

4. Energy saving of grinding and dispersion
The density of alumina is 2/3 of the zirconia, and the filling weight to the mill is 2/3.
In addition, there is a possibility that the consumption energy when grinding can be
decreased.
