Calcined alumina SALOX® are aluminium oxides, which are manufactured with the calcination of alumina or aluminium hydroxide. Precise management of the calcination process and further mechanical treatment ensure that Silkem offers high-quality products with the required properties.
The preparation of the input raw materials enables a diversification of products according to chemical properties. Various calcination stages are used to produce SALOX® products, which differ in terms of α-Al2O3 content, the size of primary crystals and the morphology of the material, which consequently leads to differences in the specific surface area of products. Grinding and separation techniques are used to ensure a broad range of final products with different distributions of particle sizes.
