Alundum® labware are made of the purest 99% fused aluminum oxide grains.
This product melts at 2,054 °C, while ceramic bonds and robust treatment processes result in labware with a wide range of unique and beneficial properties. Alundum® labware products include:
- Combustion boats with and without handles
- Filter discs and cones
Other material options include AnnaMullit® - an alumina mullite material ideal for use as saggers or capsules for ceramic powder processing; Zirnorite® - a zircon material; and Hexoloy® SA - a pressure-less sintered silicon carbide.
