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).
Atomic number: 21
Atomic weight: 44.955908
Melting point: 2,806°F (1,541°C)
The following abbreviations are often used:
• RE = rare earth
• REM = rare earth metals
• REE = rare earth elements
• REO = rare earth oxides
• REY = rare earth elements and yttrium
• LREE = light rare earth elements (Sc, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd; also known as the cerium group)
• HREE = heavy rare earth elements (Y, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu; also known as the yttrium group)
Edgetech Industries LLC presents you with high purity REE products and good service, the main products are Scandium, and HREE (yttrium group).
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.
Edgetech Industries now can provide various Sc metal products including:
Material: reduced Sc, distilled Sc metal (Sc sublimed dendritic)
Irregular: powder, lump, chunk, granules, particles.
Solid: Ingot, block, sheet, plate, disc, rod, wire, pellets, sputtering target and other customized parts.
