Special alumina charges

Aluminum oxide has excellent temperature resistance, with a melting point above

2,000°C. As a result, it is often used in ceramics, aeronautics, and nuclear energy, for the purpose of:

  • lightening or weighing down loads,
  • improving thermal conductivity,
  • increasing mechanical resistance,
  • increasing resistance to abrasion and wear,
  • improving a product’s lifespan,
  • getting a stronger paint,
  • etc.

Your aluminum oxide is packaged according to your needs and samples can be delivered as required.

Polishing : alumina cream and alumina powder

We offer two kinds of alumina powders for polishing.

  • Aluminum oxide powder: alumina powder for polishing is suitable for all of your materials (steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, stainless and ordinary steels). It can be used on a wide range of materials: soft, rough, with round or angular grains, etc. Alumina powder polishing is the perfect choice for the watchmaking, cutlery, and precision mechanics—anything that requires very fine polishing.
  • Aluminas for cream polishing: cream polishing alumina is used for sanding, polishing, cleaning and casting. Alumines Durmax manufactures your cream polishing alumina to meet your specific needs and technical requirements. Its liquid form means it is very easy to apply.


Sandblasting - Microblasting : blasting corundums

The corundum, or crystallized aluminum oxides, are manufactured from calcined alumina and are part of the family of electro-fused aluminum. There are generally 2 types of corundum: white corundum and brown corundum.

Alumines Durmax uses electro-fused aluminas with high purity and high hardness for an optimal result meeting the most specific needs. We have a wide range of grain sizes, from micron to 3 mm, according to the FEPA standard.

Aluminium oxide for special ceramics

Regardless of the type of grain you need (fine or rough), our special alumina or oxides for ceramics are designed to deliver the best results every time.

Their resistance to corrosion, wear and compression makes our aluminas for ceramic perfect candidates for the electronic, textile, and chemical industries.

Aluminium oxide for laboratory polishing

Perfectly suitable for metallographic and mineralogical laboratories, aluminium oxide powders blend effortlessly via dispersion, allowing for a homogeneous rendering.

These alumina powders improve the performance of your devices, reduce wear and tear, and provide optimal polishing. They can be used on all types of materials, including stainless steel, bronze, silver, gold, and lead.

Alumines Durmax produces and packages your aluminum oxide powder according to your exacting requirements. For more information, contact us today.
