Our pink fused alumina manufactured from calcined alumina with a small addition of chrome. One of the toughest fused aluminas available, the addition of typically 0.2% chrome within the melt of the fusion process renders a tougher grain than that of white fused alumina.

This is also referred to as Alumac.

In addition to the grades below, micro grades and specialist blends are available.
