Silicon Metal Granule
Properties of the Silicon metal Granule
Silicon, in its pure form, is a grey metallically lustrous metalloid element. Metallurgical grade silicon granule is known as silicon metal granule because of its lustrous appearance. The highly versatile material features a high melting point, excellent heat resistance, high resistivity, and antioxidant effects. It is an absolutely vital component in the production of a variety of electronics components as well as an additive in the smelting of many different types of metals and metal products.
Note: we can process the 2202, 3303, 411, 421, 441, 553 and other silicon materials into silicon powder of different granularities according to your needs.
1. Industrial silicon granule is widely used in the production of refractory materials and metallurgical applications due to its high temperature resistance, wear resistance, and oxidation resistance. Some examples of its application are furnace walls, kilns, and kiln furniture.
2. In organic silicon chemical operations, granular silicon metal is a base material used in the synthesis of organic silicon products. It is often used to manufacture silicon monomers, silicone oils, and silicone rubber preservatives. As an additive, this product provides a significant increase in temperature resistance, electrical insulation, corrosion resistance, waterproofness, and many more highly valuable properties.
3. Some of the more valuable applications of silicone metal involve using silicon wafers to produce integrated circuits and other electronics components. The granule undergoes a drawing process, turning it into monocrystalline silicon wafers. High-tech industries are essentially driven by silicon.
4. In the metallurgical casting industry, industrial silicon metal is an additive for nonferrous alloys and alloying agents in silicon steel in order to greatly enhance the hardness of the finished steel products. Silicon granules are also used as a metal reducing agent for modern ceramic alloys, providing additional hardness and heat resistance.
