Silicon Powder enhancing the Performance of your products
What is Silicon powder?
Silicon powder, known as micronized silicon, is used for many applications. Metallurgical silicon is typically produced in a size of 0-100 mm, but further size reduction is required for most applications. The optimum particle size depends strongly on the final application. This means that, in many cases, some optimization work is needed to find the most cost-competitive solution. Silicon powder is produced by crushing, milling and classifying silicon material to obtain the required particle size. Silicon powder can be made with a top cut for customers who only need to control the coarse particles. It can also be produced with a top and bottom cut for customers who need to control the amount of coarse and fine particles. The shape of the particles can also be altered by the technology used at the micronizing stage. Contamination-free micronizing is also possible for customers who cannot accept all contamination from the milling media.
Silicon powder: enhancing the performance of your products
Micronized silicon with a top cut can be supplied with 8 microns. Silicon with bottom and top cuts can be provided with a few microns and up bottom amount. The cost will depend mainly on production speed and yield. Therefore, different purities and sizes are available to satisfy customer processing requirements and application needs. Products with customized chemistry and sizing can be produced on request. Our silicon powder products include the Elkem Si-NINE™ and Si-RG™ and SILGRAIN® products, created using a proprietary hydrometallurgical process.
History of Silicon powder
Owing to the abundance of silicon in the Earth's crust, natural silicon-based materials have been used for thousands of years. Silicon rock crystals were familiar to various ancient civilizations, such as the predynastic Egyptians, who used them for beads, small vases, and the old Chinese. The Egyptians manufactured silica glass since at least 1500 BC and by, the ancient Phoenicians. Natural silicate compounds were also used in various types of mortar to construct early human dwellings.
Price of Silicon powder
Silicon powder particle size and purity will affect the product's Price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of Silicon powder. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The Price of Silicon powder is on our company's official website.
