Aluminium silicate

Aluminium silicate is a name applied to chemical compounds which are derived from aluminium oxide, Al2O3 and silicon dioxide, SiO2 which may be anhydrous or hydrated occurring as minerals or synthetic. Their chemical formulae are expressed as xAl2O3.ySiO2.zH2O. It is known as E number E559. Al2SiO5, which occurs as the minerals andalusite and sillimanite which have different crystal structures. Al2Si2O54, which occurs as the mineral kaolinite and is called aluminium silicate dihydrate, it is a fine white powder and is used as a filler in paper and rubber and used in paints. Al2Si2O7, called metakaolinite, formed from kaolin by heating at 450 °C. Al6Si2O13, the mineral mullite, the only thermodynamically stable intermediate phase in the Al2O3-SiO2 system at atmospheric pressure; this called'3:2 mullite' to distinguish it from 2Al2O3. SiO2, Al4SiO8'2:1 mullite'. 2Al2O3. SiO2, Al4SiO8'2:1 mullite'. Aluminium silicate is a type of fibrous material made of aluminium silicon dioxide; these are glassy solid solutions rather than chemical compounds.

The compositions are described in terms of % weight of alumina, Al2O3 and silica, SiO2. Temperature resistance increases as the % alumina increases; these fibrous materials can be encountered as loose wool, felt, paper or boards.
