Alumina raw materials & powders

Our alumina powder have several very required physical properties for industrial applications such as plasma spraying, cosmetic, etc.
Discover the advantages of our technical Microbeads :

Thanks to its integrated alumina powder production and its Flame fusion method, RSA is in a position to offer a wide range of dense high pure raw materials and high pure alumina powders.

Alumina Powders

Various productions of high pure alumina powders and customized doped alumina powders for crystal growth applications, vapour coatings applications, plasma applications…
(on demand alpha, gamma, and customized specific surfaces).

Alumina Microbeads

A wide range of High –tech applications : thanks to its physical and chemical characteristics, the RSA Microbeads are becoming a successful solid and technical additive.

Main advantages :
  • resistance to corrosion and chemical agents
  • higher abrasion and scratch resistance
  • resistance to fissuring and cracking
  • uniform surface improvement
  • no alteration of initial colouring


Specific luminescent applications by doping with :
  • Transition elements (Cr, Ti, Ni, Fe…)
  • Lanthanids (Nd, Ho, Yb, Er…)
With a perfect spherical shape, these fused alumina particles have a high density and an excellent flow ability, which adds to well known properties of alumina : high hardness, good electrical insulation and permittivity, chemical inertia…

All these characteristics have been tested successfully in : ceramics, composites materials, specific refractory materials composition, thermocouples insulation…

RSA Optronics Microbeads…success of crystal growth

Besides Verneuil crackles widely used as raw material for crystal growth, RSA proposes its High pure Optronics Microbeads alternative for static and continuous feeding systems for crucible charge in bulk crystal growth.

The chemical quality of the product is perfectly controlled, making it easier to directly fill the the crucibles used by all sapphire or laser crystal growing technologies : EFG, Kyropulos, Bagdasarov, CZ for YAG crystals…
