China Zhengzhou International Abrasive&Grinding Exposition was hold August 13-15th in Zhengzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center. There are only several Brown Fused Alumina enterprise from Luoyang and Zhengzhou attend this exposition. In recent years, the strict environmental inspection has influenced the production cost, and plant output which lead to the high raising price of brown fused alumina. Since the begaining of August, white aluminum oxide price drop down around
40-50USD per Ton due to the decreasing cost of the raw material alumina powder.
China's alumina market price is almost near the bottom price, so the current WFA price is in a low level. Once the raw material cost raising, the price will also increase accordingly. While BFA due to the high cost in production, the price is raising in stability. This month the price of brown fused alumina and white fused alumina are nearly flat. Some downstream buyers of brown fused alumina are start to replace brown fused alumina with ceramic abrasive grain, white fused alumina abrasive grain and black fused alumina abrasive grain.
But brown fuse alumina still have implacable place in many field, and the feature of brown fused alumina was not fully developed. The deep processed brown fused alumina still widely used in high-end field.With the development of the brown fused alumina, the enterprise need to survive by seeking high quality and deep processed way.
