NICHE Chemical Products is a United States-based chemical products business that produces smelter-grade alumina (SGA) and chemical-grade alumina (CGA). Our CGAs are used for a wide variety of industrial applications, such as catalysts, water treatments, and building materials. Many companies also trust our high-quality CGAs as flame retardants for commercial bedding, upholstery, carpet backing, and wire jacketing.
Calcined Alumina (C-70)
We produce Smelter Grade Alumina (SGA). This dry coarse powder is the primary ingredient used to manufacture aluminum.
Chemical Grade Alumina (CGA)
We offer two types of chemical grade alumina--wet cake and dry hydrate. Our wet cake (WH-30) is a high purity alumina produced by the Bayer process is the consistency of damp beach sand and is used by many companies. Companies use our wet cake for water treatment chemicals, catalysts, refining industries, deodorants, antacids, toothpaste, and cosmetics.
In contrast to the wet cake, dry hydrate (H-30) is a high purity alumina trihydrate that is also produced by the Bayer process. Its consistency is that of a coarse powder. The unique crystallization process makes our dry hydrate one of the most desirable raw materials for grinding. This product is often used in detergents, flame retardants, adhesives, and paints.
