silicon metal powder
Silicon metal powder refers to raw material applied in refractory materials and powder metallurgy industries. Silicon metal powder is made of silicon metal (also called crystalline silicon or industrial silicon). The silicon metal uses are as an additive to non-ferrous alloys. However, silicon metal is made of quartz and coke in an electric furnace. The content of silicon is about 98% in the main component (the content of Si 99.9% is also contained in silicon metal in recent year.). And the remaining impurities are iron, Aluminum and Calcium and so on.
Silicon Metal Uses are as following:
◆ Industrial silicon metal powder is widely used in refractory materials and powder metallurgy industries to improve the high temperature resistance, wear resistance and oxidation resistance of products. Its finished products are widely applied in steel making furnaces, kiln furnaces and kiln furniture.
◆ In the silicone chemical industry, silicon meal powder is the basic raw material for the synthesis of silicone polymers such as silicon monomer, silicone oil, silicone rubber preservative. So it can improve the high temperature resistance, electrical insulation and corrosion resistance, waterproof and other characteristics.
◆ Silicon metal powder is made single crystal silicon by drawn process into silicon wafer which is widely used in high-tech fields and is an indispensable raw material for integrated circuits and electronic components.
◆ In the metallurgical foundry industry, silicon metal powder is used as a non-ferrous alloy additive and a silicon steel alloying agent to improve the harden ability of steel. Silicon metal powder can also be used in certain metal to reduce agents for new ceramic alloys.
