Primary Applications: Flame Retardants

Aluminum hydroxide is used as an antacid, desiccant powder, in antiperspirants and dentifrices, in packaging materials, as a chemical intermediate, as a filler in plastics, rubber, cosmetics, and paper, as a soft abrasive for brass and plastics, as a glass additive to increase mechanical strength and resistance to thermal shock, weathering, and chemicals, and in ceramics. It is used as a flame-retardant and smoke suppressant in carpet backing, rubber products, fiberglass-reinforced polyesters, cables, and other products. It is also used pharmaceutically to lower plasma phosphorus levels of patients with renal failure (U.S. EPA 2008; HCN 2009; HSDB 2013).
