White Fused Alumina

White Fused Alumina (WFA) is obtained from the fusion of high purity calcined alumina in electric arc furnaces. WFA is raw material characterized with high hardness, yet friable with high purity, chemical stability, a high melting point, and large crystal size.

White Fused Alumina is used in many applications including grinding and cut off wheels, refractories and ceramic shapes, coated abrasives, investment casting shells, laminates, coatings, blasting abrasives, lapping and polishing, and many, many more. See below for product information relating to your application.

White Fused Alumina

AL - Bonded & Industrial Abrasives

AL - R, a white fused aluminum oxide, presents high purity and high capacity of edge reposition. AL - R is recommended for special applications where contamination is an issue to be considered.

AL - Coated Abrasives

AL - L, a white fused aluminum oxide, presents high purity and high capacity of edge reposition. AL - L is recommended for special applications where contamination is an issue to be considered.

AL - Refractories & Ceramics

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

ALP - Refractories & Ceramics

ALP is a white aluminum oxide obtained from the fusion of calcined alumina and a small quantity of chromium oxide in electric arc furnaces. It is recommended for refractory applications where chemical stability or high refractoriness is an issue to be considered.
