Description

A white, amorphous solid or gel. Aluminum hydroxide gel is produced by either soaking Alumina trihydrate in dilute acid or by treating Aluminum sulfate with an Alkali. Aluminum hydroxide gel can be used for similar applications to alumina trihydrate. It is also used as a lubricant, an antacid, and as a filter medium. Additionally, aluminum hydroxide gel is used as a mordant for dyeing textiles and is used in the manufacture of glass and ceramic glazes.
