What Is the Average Cost of Aluminum Oxide? Average Aluminum Oxide Price

The production expansion in domestic aluminum producers stimulated by the drastic demand increase has led to a price rise of aluminum oxide in both domestic and international markets. The price of aluminum oxide is $280 per ton. It is commonly referred to as alumina or corundum in its crystalline form. The most significant use of aluminum oxide is in the production of aluminum metal. It is also used as an abrasive due to its hardness and as a refractory material due to its high melting point. Rubies and sapphires are gem-quality forms of corundum. Aluminum oxide is an electrical insulator but has a relatively high thermal conductivity for a ceramic material. Alumina is favored as filler for plastics and as a common ingredient in sunscreen.
