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.
