Alumina (Al2O3)

Due to its excellent price-performance ratio, alumina (Al2O3) ceramics are predestined for many technical applicationsand the most widely used oxide ceramic material [KOL18].Its low costs are due to the high availability of aluminum (3rd most common element in the earth’s crust) and the cost-effective preparation and sintering processes.
