Alumina ceramic tile is an incredibly resilient material, offering outstanding resistance against corrosion, erosion, wear and sliding abrasion as well as high temperatures.
Alumina can be found in hydrate, calcined and tabular forms. Thanks to its excellent insulation properties and bioinert nature, Alumina makes an ideal material for electrical, chemical and X-ray equipment.
Alumina ceramic tile stands up well against wear and tear, making it suitable for lining equipment such as reactors, tanks and pipes to protect from erosion and corrosion. Furthermore, its heatproof qualities allow it to protect metal walls in kilns and furnaces from heat damage as well as help reduce wear on moving parts - prolonging equipment lifespan significantly.
Ceria is an ultrahard and long-wearing industrial oxide ceramic that can be formed into various shapes via injection molding, die pressing, isostatic press pressing, slip casting, diamond grinding and other techniques. Bauxite, an aluminum rich clay-like mineral found in nature, serves as the raw material for alumina ceramics. Once mined from the earth, this raw material can be formed into sheets to bond to equipment while simultaneously being ground down into surfaces with optimal surface flatness. Small tiles and discs can be used as substrates for LED and other electronic packages, while thicker plates are employed as anti-drill plates for locks, grinder resistant inserts in security fencing, wear-resistant cover plates for equipment used in coal, metallurgy or mining industries as well as mosaic mats to line chutes.
Alumina ceramic has another noteworthy characteristic that distinguishes it: low dielectric loss. This means it can withstand extensive electromagnetic radiation exposure without losing energy in the form of electrons; unlike metals and plastics which allow electrons to freely move when exposed to electromagnetic fields and result in electrical currents to flow freely within them.
Alumina ceramic tiles provide protection from abrasive wear in bulk material handling equipment, such as conveyor belts and crushers. Wear-resistant linings can reduce costs while increasing equipment life spans.
Alumina's density is high, making it very hard and corrosion-resistant - characteristics which have earned it widespread use across industries including medical implants and high temperature environments. Furthermore, Alumina is non-reactive so can withstand chemical reagents without becoming insoluble while being resistant to melting or degrading over time. This versatility has led to its wide application across medical, dental and other applications requiring high hardness alumina parts such as dental and medical implants as well as replacement parts in high temperature environments.
Alumina boasts low porosity, meaning there are few voids within its composition, resulting in high volume and density; its density remains unaffected by temperature change - making it suitable for a range of applications.
Alumina can withstand impacts and sliding abrasion, which makes it ideal for industrial equipment linings. Conveyor systems often employ it as an effective lining material to avoid damage to rubber conveyor belts while prolonging their lives and reducing maintenance costs; its improved friction properties reduce downtime time for equipment shutdown. Plus, due to its high alumina content these tiles make great protective linings when handling corrosive chemicals!
High Temperature Resistant
Alumina ceramics offer superior thermal resistance in applications involving high temperatures due to their low thermal conductivity, which helps even out temperature distribution across the material and their low coefficient of expansion, helping prevent thermal shock.
Alumina ceramic lining tiles are ideal for industrial and commercial applications that require protection from abrasion, corrosion and sliding abrasion. Available in pre-engineered standard and custom sizes, shapes and thicknesses; they can be installed using glue, welding or inlay technology and can even be welded directly onto other materials like metal, concrete and glass for seamless applications.
Wear-resistant alumina ceramic liners are commonly found in mining, mineral processing, metallurgy and coal industries. Applications of such linings include heavy media cyclones as main washing equipment as well as pipelines, chutes and hoppers - helping extend equipment's lifespan while decreasing maintenance costs.
Alumina ceramics are ideal for applications that must be contamination free, such as research labs and electric vehicle (EV) battery components. Alumina ceramics can be machined to precise tolerances, making them suitable for components with tight spaces to fill. Furthermore, their high durability makes alumina ceramics resistant to chemical erosion as well as electrical erosion - ideal for use as insulators in electronic devices or electronic insulators in appliances.
Easy to Clean
Alumina ceramic surfaces are non-porous, making cleaning much simpler. Most spills can simply be washed away with clean water after being brushed or swept into place; for stubborn stains that won't go away with that approach, mild cleaning solutions and neutral cleaners may work better; be wary of harsh or acidic cleaners which could harm the tile surface.
If you have persistent wine or coffee stains on ceramic tiles, try creating a baking soda-water paste. Apply it directly onto the stain, using an old toothbrush as an applicator, and scrub lightly before rinsing off with clean water afterwards. If there's still no sign of improvement after that step, try rubbing in some acetone - an effective solvent that won't harm glazed ceramic tile surfaces!
Alumina ceramics boast an extremely dense density due to their fine particle size, making them less porous than other forms of materials and providing resistance against wear and tear. Due to this property, alumina ceramics are widely used in heavy equipment used for material transfer - in areas like mining, iron & steel works, thermal power plants etc - thus increasing operational life significantly.
