RUSAL is the only company in the world that produces alumina from alkaline raw materials (nepheline). Wide competencies in this field have allowed Company specialists to create a unique technology to produce highly dispersed precipitated aluminium hydroxide (HDPAH). Due to its own technical capabilities and resources, this product costs RUSAL two times less than it does other world producers, with a higher level of product yield, as well as a high quality of the finished product.
The highly dispersed precipitated aluminium hydroxide produced at the Achinsk Alumina Refinery has successfully passed laboratory and industrial tests and received the highest customer ratings. The main application of HDPAH, which is a flame retardant, is the industrial production of halogen-free flame retardant (HFFR) cable compounds. Due to the trend on the world market for cable and wire products manufacturers to abandon PVC and halogen-containing materials, a steady demand for HDPAH is predicted.
