Advanced Ceramics

US Electrofused Minerals offers a wide range of products in various particle shapes, particle sizes and density to meet all of your requirements.

Products for the Advanced Ceramic market include:

White Fused Alumina

AL

AL is a white aluminum oxide obtained from the fusion of calcined alumina in electric arc furnaces. It is recommended for ceramic applications where purity, chemical stability or high refractoriness is an issue to be considered.

Fused Mullite

MUB

MUB is a fused mullite obtained from fusion of high purity sand and alumina in an electric arc furnace. It presents low thermal expansion and high thermal shock resistance that make MUB an excellent material for investment casting and other refractory applications.

MUBS

MUBS is a fused mullite obtained from fusion of silica sand and alumina in an electric arc furnace. It is less pure than MUB but also presents low thermal expansion and high thermal shock resistance that make MUBS an excellent material for investment casting and other refractory applications.

MUBW

MUBW is an extremely pure fused mullite obtained from fusion of silica sand and alumina in an electric arc furnace. It presents low iron contamination, low thermal expansion, high thermal shock resistance and high temperature strength. It is an excellent material for investment casting and other refractory applications.

Calcined Alumina

ACW

ACW is a high purity calcined aluminum oxide powder that is ideal for a wide variety of applications including advanced technical ceramics, surface finishing, compounds, lapping, polishing, and more.

Silicon Carbide
