Shaped Lutetium Metal
Shaped lutetium Metal
We provide plate, ingot, rod, cylinder, block, disc, and sputtering target for shaped lutetium metal, materials include reduced lutetium, and distilled lutetium metal. We provide ingot, block, rod, and sputtering target for shaped samarium metal. Foils and sheets are produced by the rolling process. Wherein praseodymium (Pr), samarium (Sm), and Lutetium (Lu) are difficult processes due to the crystal structure. They cannot be rolled, we’ll adjust the process according to user requirements. Thin products are not available for these elements.

Packaging of our lutetium metal
Lutetium metals are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
Specifically, available purity might be different for each product based on processing & inventory raw material.
Purity on Rare Earth Oxide Basis.
In the rare earth industry, chemical purities of rare earth oxides and compounds are often presented on a rare earth oxide basis (REO basis), i.e., the content of a specific rare earth oxide in comparison to total rare earth oxides (TREO) present: REO/TREO. The statement of “CeO2 > 99%”, often means CeO2/TREO > 99%. To obtain the absolute purity of a specific oxide, you can use the formula: REO/TREO X Percentage of TREO in the material.
Purity on Rare Earth Metal Basis.
In the rare earth industry, chemical purities of rare earth metals are often presented on a rare earth metal basis (REM basis), i.e., the content of a specific rare earth metal in comparison to total rare earth metals (TREM) present: REM/TREM. The statement of “Ce > 99%” often means Ce/TREM > 99%. To obtain the absolute purity of a specific metal, you can use the formula: REM/TREM X Percentage of TREM in the material.
