Lanthanum Micron Powder
Lanthanum Micron Powder has paramount significance. This chemical element is found on the periodic table with the symbol La, its atomic number is 57 and its atomic weight is 138.91. It is a white and silver-colored metal, malleable, ductile and smooth in such a way that it could be cut with a knife. Lanthanum is the most reactive material within rare earth. When alloyed with cerium, neodymium, praseodymium, and gadolinium, it forms mischmetal, an alloy used to make lighters. Thanks to the lanthanum oxide, the glass acquires resistance to the bases. Therefore, it is used for the production of special optical glasses. Lanthanum micron powder is also used in the film industry, for lighting and projection work. Derivatives of this metal are also used in the manufacture of high-quality lenses and other components for video cameras, special use lenses. This chemical element is also used as a component of intensifying screens in x-ray units.
