Sapphire (α-Al2O3) is widely used in many fields for its excellent characteristics, in particular chemical resistance, thermal conductivity, hardness, transparency. Adamant Namiki grows single crystal sapphire by EFG method, by which different cross-section forms can be obtained.

Characteristics of Single Crystal Sapphire

  • High-hardness
    - abrasion resistance
  • Transparency
    - in the range from ultraviolet to infrared light (200~7000nm)
  • Chemical resistance and heat resistance
    - resist almost all kinds of acid and alkaline, heat up ~2000°C
  • Suitable for the application of insulation property required.

Applications of Single Crystal Sapphire
