Its remarkable hardness drives the versatility of sapphires. Made from corundum and being a nine on the Mohs scale, sapphires are harder than topaz and triumphed
While natural sapphires have different appearance and quality depending on its place of origin, synthetic sapphires, scientifically known as crystalline alumina, are close to colourless. This is mainly due to the near absence of metal contamination during its formation process. The main ingredient of producing
With the increasing adoption of technological advancements, the global market demand for synthetic sapphires and HPA are also expected to grow year on year. Synthetic sapphire will lead to the future of technological growth. Recognising the potential of this industry, the Government, through the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) has been promoting high purity alumina under the Promotion of Investment Act (PIA) 1986.
MIDA has approved one manufacturing project with investments of over RM1 billion
This process is cost-effective, reduces the impurities in the final product and is also environmentally friendly. The company is capable of producing HPA of the highest purity level at 99.99% (4N) purity.
Leveraging on targeted ecosystem approach, MIDA is intensifying its efforts to entice more players in this technologically advanced industry. Promotional and awareness programmes are
