Alfa Chemistry: Glass and Ceramic Materials Enjoy Prevalence in Research Community


Alfa Chemistry, an industry leader in a variety of materials, commenced offering glass and ceramic materials earlier this month. With a distinct take on multiple advanced materials, Alfa Chemistry firmly believes in the role of ceramic and glass materials in fields including daily use, architecture, art, medicine, chemistry, electronics, and instrument.

Radically different from metals, ceramics and glasses are close cousins that share similar mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and optical properties. Meanwhile, both materials typically exhibit enhanced strength and hardness and are ideal for applications under extreme conditions.

“Ceramic and glass materials, serving either as components in devices or as raw materials necessary for manufacturing, have laid solid foundations for advanced modern technologies,” said the Marketing Chief of Alfa Chemistry. “We were honored with great pleasure to launch a wide selection of ceramic and glass materials, covering ceramic materials, glass additives, as well as other glass and ceramic derivatives.”

Ceramic Materials

Ceramic materials are inorganic non-metallic materials made of natural or synthetic compounds and demonstrated excellent performance in medicine, filtration and separation, catalysis, and public art. Some of the ceramic materials supplied by Alfa Chemistry include: boron nitride nanoparticles (CAS 10043-11-5), 3% yttria stabilized zirconia (CAS 113482-02-3), gold palladium foil (CAS 12006-59-6), tungsten boride (CAS 12007-09-9), hafnium boride (CAS 12007-23-7), lanthanum hexaboride (CAS 12008-21-8), chromium carbide (CAS 12012-35-0), aluminum diboride (CAS 12041-50-8), etc.

Glass Additives

Glass additives, such as colorants, opacifiers, clarifiers, bleaching agents, foaming agents, and foam stabilizers, are indispensable in order to improve the performance of glass products or endow glasses with new functions. Below are some of the glass additives available at Alfa Chemistry: ammonium molybdate (CAS 12027-67-7), lanthanum oxide (CAS 1312-81-8), zinc stearate (CAS 557-05-1), lead chloride (CAS 7758-95-4), potassium sulfate (CAS 7778-80-5), ceramic deflocculant, 2,4-dichloroquinazoline, 2-iodo-4-methylaniline, ammonium bicarbonate, trisodium phosphate, vanadyl sulfate, etc.

Other Glass and Ceramic Materials

In addition, Alfa Chemistry also provides other glass and ceramic materials such as iridium(III) chloride, Ir≥62.0% (CAS 10025-83-9), iridium(III) chloride, 99.8% metals basis (CAS 10025-83-9), pyrrolidine,2-ethyl- (CAS 1003-28-7), hydrazine, (tetrahydro-1,1-dioxido-3-thienyl)-, hydrochloride(1:1) (CAS 1004-15-5), ammonium iron(ii) sulfate (CAS 10045-89-3), perovskite FAPbBr3 powder, >99% (CAS 1008105-17-6), ammonium iron(III) sulfate (CAS 10138-04-2), lomerizine dihydrochloride, 98% (CAS 101477-54-7), potassium 3,5-diiodosalicylate, 97% (CAS 1015937-56-0), 2,4-dichloro-3-ethyl-6-aminophenol hydrochloride (CAS 101819-99-2), etc.
