Brief Introduction of Alumina Flakes
Alumina Flakes is the substrate of Pearlescent Pigment. In addition to its primary function, it can also be treated with water-based coating agent and other functional coating agent. The surface will then have very good anti-corrosive performance.
Types of Alumina Flakes
Alumina flakes are an important component of many products, such as pearlescent pigments and other types of paint. They’re also a crucial material for producing high-quality aluminum alloys and refractory metals. There are three main types of alumina flakes: 1) Alumina Flake Powder – Alumina powder is used for the production of pearlescent pigments or paints, which in turn can be applied to plastics, glassware, ceramics and textiles. 2) Alumina Flake Granules – This type is mainly used in the construction industry as it can be used as a substitute for cement or Portland cement. 3) Alumina Flake Pellets – These pellets are mainly used in manufacturing processes that require heated materials. They’re often used as an alternative to coal, charcoal or coke.
Raw Material of Alumina Flakes
Alumina is the raw material of pearlescent pigment. Pearlescent pigment is widely used in paints, plastics, paper coatings, and other products. Haiwei Emerging Material offer variety of alumina to meet customer needs. A pure and high quality alumina can make the color more pure, bright and clean.
Producers of Alumina Flakes
As the substrate of pearlescent pigment, alumina is widely used in a variety of industries. The wide range of applications includes: 1. Electronics Alumina is an important material for electronics because it is a good conductor and has low dielectric loss. Alumina flakes are often used to form conductive paths in electronic devices such as transistors and integrated circuits. Alumina is also a key raw material for semiconductor devices, such as photovoltaic cells, which convert the sun’s light into electricity. 2. Ceramics Alumina is also an important raw material for ceramics, which are used in applications such as cookware and industrial equipment (e.g., kilns). In addition, alumina particles can be added to ceramic glazes to produce desirable colors and shades without changing the physical properties of the glaze (e.g., melting point or toughness). 3. Paper Products One other area where alumina has many uses is paper production for high-quality printing products (e.g., magazines). Alumina provides opacity and whiteness to paper products, making it ideal for this type of product application.
Uses of Alumina Flakes
Alumina flakes are a substrate of pearlescent pigmented paint, the pigment can be made of either aluminum or titanium dioxide. These flakes provide the surface with a shimmering effect and give it a metallic appearance.
Cons of Alumina Flakes
1. Alumina Powder: It is a kind of ceramic powder, it can’t be dissolved in water or acid. 2. Alumina Flakes: This product is more economic and has more varieties than alumina powder, so it’s the substrate of pearlescent pigment. 3. Alumina Ball: The ball form is a more economic way to use than the plate form, so some manufacturers choose this product as the substrate of pearlescent pigment according to customer needs. 4. Alumina Flake: It’s an easy-to-use form with a variety of colors and doesn’t need to be dissolved in water or acid, so it’s easy for customer to use for their requirement.
