Strontium Powder ( Sr, Purity: 99.9%, APS: 10-20µm)
|<20 µm (can be customized)
Strontium powder, a chemical element with the symbol Sr and atomic number 38, has several applications across various industries. Some of the notable applications of strontium powder include:
Pyrotechnics: Strontium powder is commonly used in the pyrotechnics industry to produce bright red fireworks. When burned, strontium compounds emit a deep red color, making them a popular choice for creating vibrant red flames in fireworks displays.
Medical Imaging: Strontium powder, particularly the radioactive isotope strontium-89, is used in medicine for the treatment of bone cancer and other metastatic cancers that have spread to the bones. Strontium-89 emits radiation that helps in the relief of bone pain associated with these cancers.
Electronics: Sr powder finds application in the electronics industry, primarily in the production of cathode ray tubes (CRTs) for televisions and monitors. Strontium oxide is used as a major component in the glass of CRT screens, enhancing its properties for better electron emission.
Alloys: Strontium is often used as an alloying element, especially in the production of aluminum alloys. It can improve the mechanical properties of aluminum, making it stronger and more corrosion-resistant.
Magnetic Materials: Strontium ferrite is a popular material for making permanent magnets. These magnets find applications in various electronic devices such as loudspeakers, microphones, and microwave devices.
Glass Manufacturing: Strontium carbonate, derived from strontium powder, is used in the manufacturing of specialty glass for cathode-ray tubes, and optical glass, and as an ingredient in the production of certain types of glass used in the production of television screens and in the ceramic industry.
Paints and Pigments: Strontium compounds are used in the production of pigments and paints. They can impart unique colors and properties to paints, such as deep red hues for paints and coatings.
