Bauxite is a rock with high aluminum content. Bauxite is a generic name for deposits composed of one or more hydrated aluminum oxide mineral species. Bauxite contains many impurities, such as silica, iron and titanium oxides, and other elements, mostly in minor or trace amounts. There are four basic grades of bauxite- Chemical grade- (55-58% min. pure), Abrasive grade- (55% min. pure), Refractory grade- (59-61% min. pure), and Metallurgical grade- (50-55% min. pure). Bauxites are typically classified according to their intended commercial application: metallurgical, abrasive, cement, chemical and refractory.

Purities available from 98% (industrial grade) to 99.999% (high purity grade)
Typical Applications

Bauxite is used in the production of aluminum, in refractories, as an industrial abrasive, and in chemicals, castables, plastics, and cement. Bauxite is also used in the oil field as a proppant
