Aluminium Fluoride (AlF3), known as aluminium trifluoride, trifluoroalumane and trifluoroaluminum, is an inorganic compound used primarily in the production of aluminium.



  • Used by aluminium producers to lower the melting point of electrolytes during smelting process
  • Used as a flux ingredient for the removal of magnesium in the refining of aluminium scrap
  • Used for glazing mixtures and in the production of refractory products in the ceramic industry
  • Used in the manufacture of aluminium silicates
  • Used in the Glass Industry as a filler


  • Temperature-lowering properties
  • AlF3 has a definite energy saving effect
  • Enables aluminum alloys to be produced, that are almost free of magnesium
