Plates & Discs

Aluminium Oxide (Al2O3) plates and discs are used for high temperature applications as well as for wear applications. High-purity Al2O3 grades, as well as lower grades, are available. An example of a high-temperature application for plates is its use in furnaces as a heat shield.

Heavy wear is often combated by cementing the ceramic plates onto the steel sub surface. For this application, a 92% Al2O3 grade is most often used. For each application, the number of standard and custom-made plates required is computer calculated. In addition to this combination of standard plates and custom-made shapes, heavy-duty mats are also produced. Small ceramic tiles are adhered to a tape of approximately 500 x 500 mm. The shape of these tiles is square (e.g. 10 x 10 mm) or even hexagonal. The thickness can be anything from 3 mm to approximately 25 mm.

Gimex can supply a wide range of sizes, please contact us for more information.
