Aluminium hydroxide: white and flame retardant

Aluminium hydroxide is produced synthetically from bauxite. The outstanding features of aluminium hydroxide are flame retardance (dehydration at 200°C), high whiteness and low hardness.



• Hardness 3 (Mohs)
• density 2.4 g/cm³
• high brightness (Y>94)
• thermal expansion: 15*10-6/K (at T 20-300 °C)
• flame retardance

Key applications

• cables
• textiles like carpets
• epoxy casting resins
• different applications in the chemical industry
• SMC/ BMC as well as latex
