Aluminium Oxide Production Cost Report

Aluminium oxide is a chemical compound which is chemically inert and has major applications in the manufacturing of industrial ceramics that serve various industries. It is also integral to the metal industry, especially in aluminium metal production. Aluminium Oxide acts as a protective layer on the metal surface, shielding it from corrosion. It adds toughness to medical implants and is employed in the production of dental crowns, abutments, bridges, prostheses, hip replacements, bionic implants, and more. Additionally, aluminium oxide is utilized in the manufacturing of body armor for defence purposes.

Materials made with aluminium oxide are lightweight, hard, and bioinert. As a result, it is heavily used in the creation of synthetic-sapphire bulletproof windows, ballistics, breastplates, and other defensive gear. Its applications in the electrical and electronics industries involve the production of alumina films for the microchip sector. Given its high melting and boiling points, Aluminium Oxide serves as an excellent thermal resistive material suitable for high-temperature furnace insulations and electrical insulators.

The market for aluminium oxide is led by its demand as a crucial component for producing industrial ceramic products, electrical, medical products, and automotive components to a great extent. Additionally, its usage in the production of alumina films, electrical insulator for electrical & electronic industries, body armour, bullet-proof windows, etc for the defence industry elevates its demand for these respective industries. The availability and cost of aluminium oxide’s feedstock (Bauxite Ore- NAOH-Ca(OH)2 ), as well as market prices, distribution (which includes trading and transportation), logistics, etc., all play a key role in the industrial aluminium oxide procurement process. Global procurement of this commodity is greatly influenced by its necessity as a key component for the automotive, defence, electrical, medical and construction industries.

Raw Material for Aluminium oxide Production

According to the Aluminium oxide manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Aluminium oxide production include Bauxite Ore-Caustic Soda (NaOH)-Calcium Hydroxide (Slaked lime).

Manufacturing Process of Aluminium oxide

The extensive Aluminium oxide production cost report consists of this major industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production by Bayer Process: The Bayer process is the major industrial method of producing Aluminium oxide or alumina, which involves bauxite refining. Bauxite ore undergoes a multi-step Bayer Process to produce aluminium oxide. This involves grinding, washing, and dissolving the bauxite in NaOH and Ca(OH)2 to form a slurry, which is then processed to eventually form aluminium hydroxide (alumina).

Aluminium Oxide is an inert chemical compound commonly referred to as alumina. It mainly comprises two aluminium and three oxygen atoms. It is a white, odorless chemical compound with several commercial applications, predominantly in the ceramics industry. Contrary to the claim of it being thermally unstable, Aluminium Oxide is known for its high thermal stability. This insoluble compound naturally occurs in earth minerals such as corundum and bauxite. It is insoluble in water and is generally available in a dry powdered form. Its melting and boiling points are approximately 2030 °C and 2977 °C, respectively. Its density is measured at 3.95 g/cm^3, and it has a molecular mass of 101.96 g/mol. Aluminium Oxide is formed at very high temperatures through the Bayer Process.
