Silgrain® XO MicronCut is a micronised silicon powder aged under oxidizing conditions to promote growth of the oxide layer.
The main application for Silgrain® XO MicronCut is as a raw material for the ceramic industry. The aged material will lower the formation of hydrogen when the silicon is exposed to water based solutions. Silgrain® XO MicronCut is therefore especially suited for customers using slip casting processes for the production of ceramic components.
Silgrain® XO MicronCut can be delivered in a wide range of sizes. Typical sizes are 0-10 µm, 0-20 µm, 0-45 µm, 0-60 µm, 0-75 µm, 0-100 µm and 0-150 µm. All products contain max. 1 % oversize according to laser diffraction. Particle size distribution curves and D10, D50 and D90 values can be supplied upon request.
Silgrain® XO MicronCut can be delivered in 1000 kg big bags or 25 kg paper bags. Other non-standard packaging on request.
