Silicon metal powder is also called industrial silicon powder. It is silver gray or dark gray powder with metallic luster. 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.
1. Widely applied to refractory material and powder metallurgy industry to improve the heat resistance, wear resistance and oxidation resistance. Products made of it are applied in steel smelting furnace, kiln hood and kiln furniture, etc.
2. In the chemical line of organic silicon, silicon metal powder is the basic raw material that high molecule Polymer of organic silicon composed. Such as using for producing organic silicon monomer, silicon oil, silicon rubber antiseptic to improve the characteristics of insulating, corrosion-resistance and waterproof performance, etc.
3. Metal silicon powder is sublimated into monocrystalline silicon, then process it to silicon chip, the silicon chip is widely used in hi-tech field as an essential raw material for integrated circuit and electronic component.
4. In metallurgy and foundry line, silicon metal powder is regarded as to be iron base alloy additive, the alloy pharmaceutical of silicon steel, thus improve the steel hardenability. Used as reducing agent for some metal in new type of ceramic alloy, etc.
