Aluminium Trihydrate (ATH)

Product information

You might know Aluminium Trihydrate also as Aluminium Trihydroxide or Alumina Trihydrate.

This mineral 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 products is from a high-purity source.

Applications using ATH

Our international customers use this particular mineral for a variety of end-products, for example:

For the latter two applications, we also offer our UltraCarb product. To understand which mineral is the best solution for your process, we advise you to contact your area sales manager.
