Silicon Metal - Industrial Glutamate

Weden Metal Co.,Limited | Updated: Feb 07, 2018

    Silicon Metal processed by excellent industrial silicon and including full varieties. Used in electro, metallurgy and chemical industry. It is silver gray or dark gray powder with metallic luster, which be of high melting point, good heat resistance, high resistivity and superior oxidation resistance, it's called "industrial glutamate", which is an essential basic raw material in hi-tech industry. 

    There are two main applications for Silicon Metal
    As an alloying element for Aluminum alloys for casting and extrusions;
    As the basic raw material for Silicones produced by the chemical industry;
    These two applications have more or less the same consumption volume and represent more than 90% of total world silicon metal consumption, although most of the chemical application is found in highly industrialized countries; The remaining part of consumption is shared between ultra-high-purity electronic applications and, more recently, solar applications. The other uses remain-marginal. 

    Silicon metal is also used in the production of super high purity silicon by metallurgical or chemical routes, destined to the manufacture of parts for the segment of advanced electronics, as computers, space communications, defence systems, photo-voltaic panels, etc.
    Depending on the application, there are several grades of Silicon metal, which differing levels of various impurities.
