Pink Aluminum Oxide

Want to keep this datasheet? Save it now in your required format


GNPGraystar’s Pink and Ruby Fused Aluminum Oxide contain chromium oxide, which gives the material its Pink and Ruby color. The incorporation of the Cr₂O₃ into the Al₂O₃ crystal lattice produces an increase in toughness and a reduced friability compared with White Fused Alumina.

Compared to Brown Aluminum Oxide the Pink & Ruby materials are harder, more aggressive and have better cutting ability. The grain shape of Pink & Ruby Aluminum Oxide is sharp and angular.

Technological properties

Application areas

The FEPA F grades are especially suitable for the manufacture of vitrified bonded abrasives for working hardened steels and alloys with tensile strengths of over 50 kg/ mm2. These are also used in tool grinding, saw and knife-sharpening applications, precision grinding, profile grinding, flute grinding, tooth grinding, dry grinding of blade segments, and mounted wheels.

The FEPA P grades are a preferred material for working non-ferrous metals and the alloys (copper, aluminum, zinc, brass, bronze), but also used for softer materials, such as wood, synthetics, and paints.
