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
