The unique Silgrain® process, a leaching process developed by Elkem in the late 1960’s, provides a silicon powder of high homogeneity in chemistry, size and grain structure. Our Silgrain® provides benefits to producers of trichlorosilane for production of polysilicon used in the electronic and solar industry.
Silgrain® is a silicon powder containing minimum 99 % Si.
Silgrain® is mainly used in the production of trichlorosilane for production of polysilicon used in the electronic and solar industry.
The typical size of Silgrain® is 45-500 µm, but other sizes are also available. Contact us and we will provide a particle size distribution optimised for your process. Particle size distributions can be supplied upon request.
