Manganese Micron Powder
Manganese is a chemical element with the symbol Mn and atomic number of 25. It is not found as a free element in nature; it is often found in minerals in combination with iron. Manganese is a transition metal with a multifaceted array of industrial alloy uses. Manganese is a pinkish -gray, chemically active element. It is a hard metal and is very brittle. It is hard to melt, but easily oxidized. Manganese metal powders and its common ions are paramagnetic. Manganese tarnishes slowly in air and oxidizes like iron in water containing dissolved oxygen. Manganese is reactive when pure, and as a powder it will burn in oxygen, it reacts with water (it rusts like iron) and dissolves in dilute acids. Manganese is essential to iron and steel production. At present steel making, it accounts 85% to 90% of the total demand, most of the total demand. Manganese micron powder is a key component of low-cost stainless-steel formulations and widely used in manufacturing of aluminum alloys. Also, manganese micron powder is used to decolorize glass in glassmaking and it gives violet color to glass. In addition, manganese micron powder is used for manganese-zinc oxide batteries.
