Alumina

Blasch offers a family of injection molded and cast alumina products, including ore chutes, cyclones, and pump liners. We offer a broad range of compositions of this material and microstructures to fulfill different requirements for thermal shock resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, melt and slag corrosion resistance, mechanical stability and gas permeability.  A broad range of sizes and shapes of specific products are available.


Advantages of Alumina

  • Optimum wear resistance
  • Extreme high temperature stability
  • High thermal expansion
  • Resistance to corrosive chemicals

Markets for Alumina

  • Mining
  • Power Generation
  • Automotive

Typical Alumina Products

Following is a list of products we supply to industries worldwide including, but not limited to:

In addition, we will work with you to engineer whatever customized solution your process requires. 

Die Casting

Die Casting is one of the most challenging processes for ceramics where materials see high thermal shock and long exposure to molten aluminum.  Blasch helps you meet that challenge by providing the best selection of non-wetting materials available for aluminum die casting applications including our Oxytron™, Nitron™ and Aluminum Titanate materials.  Utilizing these advanced materials, Blasch offers die casters designs and solutions that improve your casters uptime while reducing oxide formation.

Immersion Heater Tubes

Launders, Tundishes

Continuous Casting

The continuous casting process requires ceramic materials that must provide a long and predictable life in molten non-ferrous metals. Blasch materials like our Oxytron™, Nitron™, Fused Silica and Alumina materials exceed in these high thermal shock applications while also providing great non-wetting properties. Using our Blasch process for ceramic production, we produce products that provide the high tolerances and dimensional repeatability required in continuous casting operations to reduce downtime on your line. Nearly any shape and size of parts can be provided by Blasch.
