Vanadium Micron Powder
Vanadium is a chemical element with the symbol V and has the atomic number 23. It is a hard, silvery-grey, malleable transition metal, and this elemental metal is rarely found in nature. Vanadium micron powder is bright white in appearance, it possesses good corrosion resistance to alkalis, sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid and salt-water. In the last decade, powder form vanadium have attracted much interest due to their chemical and physical properties and their great potential for applications in catalysis, as sensors, in electrochromic and optical switching devices, as an electrode material for electrochemical capacitors and in windows for solar cells. Due to its low fission neutron cross section vanadium is also used in nuclear applications. The most important use of vanadium is as an additive for steel, with approximately 80% of vanadium going into ferrovanadium, a steel additive. Vanadium (V) Micron Powder is mostly applied in chemical catalysts, high speed tool steels, vanadium-enhanced batteries, steel additive, specialty steels. Commercially, vanadium is produced by reducing vanadium trichloride with magnesium metal or a mixture of magnesium and sodium or via the calcium reduction of V2O5 in a pressure vessel.
