Brown Fused Aluminum Oxide In Sandblasting Process


Brown fused aluminum oxide, otherwise known as Brown Fused Alumina or BFA, is produced through an electric arc furnace process. Brown fused aluminum oxide is both a hard (Mohs hardness 9) and tough material with high strength, making it an excellent abrasive grain raw material for removing rust, mill scale, and surface contamination. The consistent particle size allows for a uniform surface finish and coverage.
