- plentiful substances;
- inorganic chemicals;
- alpha alumina
The types of alumina currently available in the marketplace, their application areas, and the new developments underway that are expected to improve alumina's performance are discussed. These developments will enhance the ceramic properties and lead to an expanded use for alumina-based products.
