Aluminium Trihydrate, also known as Aluminium Trihydroxide or Alumina Trihydrate, is derived from Bauxite ore. This natural ore is refined to a fine white powder via the Bayer process. After washing and drying it is used as the feedstock for a wide range of Alumina chemicals. The raw material used for the ATH products is from a high purity source.

Important properties ATH

ATH has the following properties important to most applications:

  • Exceptional whiteness
  • Good translucency
  • Resistance to chemicals and weathering
  • Impact resistance

The softness of the mineral contributes to making materials machinable with loading levels between 40% and 70% becoming possible and providing best properties.
