Alumina Ceramics

Second only to diamond in hardness (+9 Mohs) alumina ceramic provides outstanding wear resistance to erosion and corrosion problems in a variety of hostile environments. Alumina ceramic linings will outlast lower grade materials commonly used to line or protect processing and material handling equipment, including stainless steel, carbon steel, basalt and AR plates by factors of 3 to 15 times. With an economical cost vs wear-life ratio makes it one of the most widely used abrasion resistant materials in the industry.

Our ceramic materials are offered in a variety of shapes, sizes and grades to fit almost any application and are available through shop installation, at your site by our field service crews or for purchase from our industry leading inventory program.

Alumina Ceramics

Commonly referred to as ”pre-engineered” a kit of material can be manufactured to minimize installation time in many complex shaped substrates. Cones, pipes and transition linings for example can be installed in hours versus cutting these diamond hard tiles after they are fired to fit the shape or around holes and doors or segments of pipe.
