The connection and difference between alumina ceramics and mullite ceramics
02-27-2023

Mullite ceramics and alumina ceramics are two different ceramic products, and their relationship with floor tiles is also different. Under normal circumstances, floor tiles do not specifically use alumina, mainly because pure alumina ceramics are very expensive, and using them as floor tiles will consume a high cost.

The mullite ceramic mentioned here is actually a product produced by the reaction of alumina and silica, and it has significant differences in performance compared to alumina ceramics. In terms of hardness, alumina ceramics are harder than mullite ceramics, but both are hard enough to prevent damage during use.

In terms of corrosion resistance, although mullite ceramics are acid resistant, they are not alkali resistant; The acid and alkali resistance of alumina ceramics are all first-class, but for floor tiles, the corrosion resistance of alumina ceramics is too high and unnecessary. The sintering temperature of mullite ceramics is relatively low, so the cost is low.

In terms of heat shock resistance, comparisons were also made, and the results showed that the heat shock resistance of mullite ceramics was higher than that of alumina ceramics; Similarly, the high-temperature creep of mullite ceramics is higher than that of alumina, so mullite can withstand higher weight at high temperatures, while alumina ceramics are slightly inferior.

In addition, the difference between alumina ceramics and mullite ceramics is also reflected in their resistance. It is obvious that alumina ceramics have a higher resistance than mullite ceramics, which is also the main reason for choosing alumina ceramics as high-voltage insulator materials.
