Alumina Ceramics by BCE Special Ceramics GmbH

Alumina is the most popular ceramic material resulting from nearly endless availability in different purities, starting with approx. 92 % ending up with 99.99 % qualities and the specific material characteristics. Combining a medium level bending strength with excellent wear resistance, high hardness and relatively good thermal conductivity Alumina is versatile useable. Especially in electrical applications and high temperature operations the excellent insulating behavior and dielectric strength favor Alumina for use up to 1750 °C.

Hardness is paired with high brittleness, therefore Alumina is not suited in highly loaded machinery applications. From time to time a customizing and modification in design-engineering can succeed.

BCE treats purity grades in range from 96 % (A 960) to 99.99 % (A 999) — mainly the 99.5…99.7 % quality (A 995).

About BCE Special Ceramics GmbH

Technical Ceramics Manufacturer

BCE, founded in 1986, has extensive experience in the field of engineering ceramics. This enables us to assist our customers in developing the optimal material for specific applications. We can produce one custom item, a prototype or your full manufacturing run.

Our products use oxide ceramics, Alumina (Al2O3) and zirconium oxide (ZrO2), as well as high-performance mixed oxide ceramics such as ATZ (Alumina Toughened Zirconia) and ZTA (Zirconia Toughened Alumina).

The right selection of materials for the specific application and the production possibilities are an essential part of any customer consultation.
