Lanthanum Metal

Brief information of Lanthanum Metal Formula: La CAS No.: 7439-91-0 Molecular Weight: 138.91 Density: 6.16 g/cm3 Melting point: 920 °C Appearance: Silvery lump pieces, ingots, rod, foil, wire, etc. Stability: Easy oxidized in the air. Ductibility: Good Multilingual: Lanthan Metall , Metal De Lanthane, Metal Del Lantano Application of Lanthanum Metal: Lanthanum Metal is the very important raw materials in producing Hydrogen Storage Alloys for NiMH batteries, and is also used to produce other pure Rare Earth metals and specialty alloys. Small amounts of Lanthanum added to Steel improves its malleability, resistance to impact, and ductility; Small amounts of Lanthanum are present in many pool products to remove the Phosphates that feed algae. Lanthanum Metal can be further processed to various shapes of ingots, pieces, wires, foils, slabs, rods, discs and powder. Lanthanum metal is used as a functional material additive, high-tech alloy additive, and in the field of electronic products.Lanthanum metal is used in the production of nickel hydrogen batteries. Manufacture special alloy precision optical glass, high refraction optical fiberboard, suitable for camera, camera, microscope lens and optical instrument prism, etc.Manufacturing ceramic capacitors, piezoelectric ceramic dopants, and X-ray luminescent materials such as lanthanum bromide oxide powder.
