Aluminium oxide RAPOX
RAPOX® 80, RAPOX® 95 und RAPOX® 100
Rapox is an aluminium oxide ceramics distinguished by outstanding material properties, such as electrical insulation strength at high temperatures.
The material group consists of the brands RAPOX 80, RAPOX 95 and RAPOX 100. Their structure gives them outstanding insulation properties and shape stability, even under severe conditions.
Production & properties
Production & properties
Some typical moulding procedures are isostatic pressing, dry pressing, extrusion and injection moulding. Almost every geometric shape is possible. To prevent the formation of dirt adhesion during use, these can also be glazed.
As a specialist, we also offer you large components such as large ceramic tubes, e.g. with threads, grooves or notches, which we can produce using specially developed manufacturing procedures and processing techniques.
Aluminium oxide materials of the groups C780 (RAPOX 80) and C795 (RAPOX 95) are suitable above all as insulation materials in the high-voltage field. RAPOX 95 in particular was optimised in this respect and is a standard for high-voltage insulators recognised worldwide, for example in ignition technology (ignition electrodes/igniters).
Along with this, RAPOX 80 (C780) is especially suitable as a construction material at high ambient temperatures, due to its good stability values.
RAPOX 100 is ideal, because of its outstanding chemical purity (> 99.9 % Al2O3 content), as a material in chemical technology (laboratory crucibles, ceramic crucibles), where any material impurity whatsoever is not desired, and in electronics.
Approved products in these material groups are insulators in the high and low voltage sector, fuse bodies, oven pipes, sensor bodies, covers and housings, thermocouple tubes, thermocouple protection tubes (also closed on one side) and also weld bead supports.
We will be pleased to draw up an offer for you! For this purpose, we request a customer specification drawing, with details of quantities, function zones and required tolerances.
For new products, we offer you the opportunity of getting an initial impression of our materials, and we will send you sample materials free of charge. Using a special rapid manufacturing procedure, we can also offer you individual samples as prototypes at a flat-rate machine charge. In this way you can test the material in use before deciding on series production at our company.
