Silicon Micron Powder
Silicon has a characteristic grayish color and also has a metallic luster and one of its characteristics is that it can transmit more than 95% of all wavelengths of infrared light, in lengths ranging from 1.3 to 6 micro-m. It is important to note that 25.7% of the Earth's crust has silicon in its composition, which makes silicon the second element in the composition of the Earth's crust. Also, it can be located in the stars, the sun and the meteorites. Silicon in the form of micron powder is of huge significance. The most frequent use of silicon micron powder is for the manufacture of bricks, enamels, concrete and ceramics in the construction industry. Together with other chemical elements such as phosphorous, arsenic, gallium and boron, it is used for the production of components for transistors, rectifiers, solar cells and space technology, among other uses.
