Aluminium fluoride (AlF3) – powdered crystal of white and grey color. Produced during reprocessing of fluorine-containing phosphate raw material (apatites, phosphates) into phosphoric acid in the process of compound fertilizer production. About 95% of AlF3 overall output is used for the production of aluminium and in glassmaking, the leather industry, and in optics production.
