Calcined bauxite

Calcined bauxite (aluminium oxide) is produced from Refractory Agglomerated Super Calcined (RASC) bauxite. The main constituent is the mineral corundum. Calcined bauxite can be characterised by:


  • High Mohs hardness of 8.5
  • High inertness in various media.

Calcined bauxite will provide:


  • Excellent abrasion resistance: due to its hardness of 8.5 on Mohs scale, calcined bauxite will increase the coating’s resistance to wear.
  • Chemical resistance: due to its inert nature, calcined bauxite provide good chemical resistance compared to conventional fillers.
