Silicon 97

Silicon 97 is ladle refined silicon of minimum 97% purity. The material is produced in large industrial scale in a tight tolerance band. Silicon 97 is refined and this results in a very high yield when used as alloying element in aluminium or in other metallurgical processes.

Description

Silicon 97 is ladle refined silicon of minimum 97% purity.

Application 

Silicon 97 is highly versatile and is used as alloying material to aluminium metal for all high-pressure die-casting alloys, for most AA 6000 alloys and is also used in several other industrial applications. 

Sizes

Silicon 97 can be delivered in sizing 10-100 mm, 10-50 mm and 6-35 mm. Other sizes available on request. 

Packing

Silicon 97 can be delivered in bulk or in big bags.
Sizing 6-35 mm can be packed in 25 kg paper bags. 

Health, Safety and Environment

Not classified as hazardous material in accordance with GHS and CLP. Please refer to the corresponding Elkem product safety information no. 301 for further details.
