Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW
• for use on ceramics, fibre ceramics, graphite and metals
• excellent chemical stability
• high temperature application up to 1800°C (3272°F)
• for crucibles, dies, supports and boats


Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW is a high purity alumina coating with excellent release and non-sticking properties. Due to its high chemical resistance this coating serves as a chemical reaction barrier with sintered materials, e.g. with the production of hard metals (tungsten carbides) and magnetic substances. An application as a protective and release coating is also possible in the field of melting and casting processes of aggressive metals, alloys and slags.

Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW produces a soft and flexible coating. For hard and abrasive-resistant coatings the product Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AA is available. Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW can be used both at air as well as under vacuum and inert gas up to 1800°C (3272°F).


• Resuspend Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW prior to use. Dilute with distilled water if necessary.
• Application on clean surfaces is possible by painting or spraying.
• Dry thoroughly. Do not contact wet coatings with metal melts. Additional layers may be applied after drying.
• Curing of the coating is possible at 1000°C.
• Best performance of Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW is achieved by thin coatings (up to 200µm). Thick coatings may crack during use.
• Do not damage coating during use, because damaged areas are not protected sufficiently.
• Tools may be cleaned with water.

Storage-Container Size

Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW must be protected against frost. A storage temperature of >5°C (>41°F) is recommended. The containers should be kept closed. Aluminium-Oxide-Coating AW is available in 1kg-containers.
