Aluminum Fluoride (AlF3) CAS No. 7784-18-1 / Chemical properties
It is co-heated with liquid ammonia or concentrated sulfuric acid, or has no reaction with potassium hydroxide. Not reduced by hydrogen, strong heat does not decompose but sublimate, the nature is very stable. Heating to 300-400 ° C can be partially decomposed by water vapor into hydrogen fluoride and aluminum oxide.
Aluminum Fluoride (AlF3) CAS No. 7784-18-1 / Function and Application
Mainly used in aluminum production to reduce the melting point and increase the conductivity of the electrolyte. Used as an inhibitor of by-fermentation in alcohol production. Also used as a fluxing agent and glaze component for ceramic glazes and enamel glazes. It can also be used as a flux for smelting non-ferrous metals.
