Aluminum hydroxide chemical formula of Al (OH) 3, is the aluminum
hydroxide.Aluminum hydroxide can react with acid to form salt and water and
with strong base to form salt and water, so it is also a kind of
amphoteric hydroxide.The chemical formula, Al(OH)3, is the hydroxide of aluminum.It is also called aluminic acid (H3AlO3) because it is somewhat
acidic.But what is actually produced when it reacts with a base is
tetrahydroxy aluminate ([Al(OH)4]-).Therefore, it is usually regarded as monohydrate partial aluminic
acid (HAlO2·H2O), which is divided into industrial and
pharmaceutical grade according to its use.
Aluminum hydroxide is the inorganic flame retardant additive with
the largest dosage and widest application.Aluminum hydroxide as a flame retardant can not only flame
retardant, and can prevent smoke, do not produce drops, do not
produce toxic gas, therefore, has been widely used, the use is
increasing year by year.Application: thermosetting plastics, thermoplastics, synthetic
rubber, coatings and building materials, etc.At the same time, aluminum hydroxide is also the basic raw material
of aluminum fluoride necessary for electrolytic aluminum industry,
and aluminum hydroxide is also widely used in this industry.
