An organic compound mainly used in the production of the aluminum is known as aluminum fluoride. Aluminum fluoride is known for its colorless feature and also can be prepared synthetically as it occurs in nature. It is manufactured by thermal decomposition of ammonium hexafluoroaluminate and also for the small scale preparation the chemical used is aluminum hydroxide or aluminum metal. This chemical is used for inhibiting the fermentation and also is a sputtering target for low index film s which gives effective outcome for these chemicals. This chemical is produced by the process called as dry process where gas known as hydrogen fluoride reacts with the aluminum oxide to form aluminum fluoride which is a chemical used in most of the industries. It is thus prepared by treating aluminum hydroxide or aluminum metal. The structure of this chemical resembles to that of the rhenium trioxide which also consists of the distorted octahedral.
The types of these chemicals are sodium aluminum fluoride is the inorganic compound which has feature like colorless solid which occurs naturally as the mineral which is known as mineral cryolite which is used in the industrial production of aluminum as it finds its applications in insecticides, adhesives, and flux agents which are used for flex agent filter for resin bonded grinded wheel which are very much accurate in its composition. The other type includes potassium aluminum fluoride which is used as flux in the smelting of secondary aluminum and also calcium hydroxide is widely used to suppress the fluorides which are produced in most of the cases as it removes sufficiently.
The other type includes lithium aluminum fluoride used as flux for removing the magnesium content of the melt. In this type the same chemical is again used which is known as calcium hydroxide which is produced in most of the cases. Aluminum fluoride is highly used in the construction industry and the byproduct of this chemical is known as anhydrite used as sulphur source for fertilizer which is known for its effective use.
