Scandium Metal

Scandium Metal

Scandium (Sc) is a silvery-white metallic transition metal, often classified as a rare earth element (REE), together with yttrium (Y) and the 15 lanthanides (La).

Symbol: Sc
Atomic number: 21
Atomic weight: 44.955908
Melting point: 2,806°F (1,541°C)

Application of scandium

Scandium (Sc) is a key ingredient in the new solid oxide fuel cell market, and in lighting and aerospace components.

The main application of scandium is in aluminum-scandium alloys (Sc-Al alloys) for minor aerospace industry components. The common content is 2% scandium. The addition of scandium to aluminum limits an excessive grain growth that occurs in the heat-affected zone of welded aluminum components. Another application is scandium-aluminum alloys can be used in some sports equipment, including baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, as well as bicycle frames and related components.
