What do little spheres of aluminum trihydrate have in common with rubies and sapphires? They are all aluminas. Sapphires and rubies are nearly pure crystalline alumina with trace impurities that add color. Activated alumina, such as BASF F200, is a very dry and porous type of aluminum oxide. It is incredibly strong with a high resistance to abrasion and can hold a great deal of liquid without changing form.

Activated Alumina Desiccant is widely used for a variety of different liquid, air and gas drying procedures. Due to its strength, lack of change when in contact with substances, large surface area, and many other factors. It is shock-resistant and there is also no physical reaction which would normally lead to swelling or disintegration.
