Ytterbium metal is a soft, malleable, ductile, silvery element, also belonging to the lanthanide group. It reacts slowly in air or water but dissolves rapidly in mineral acids.
Atomic number: 70
Atomic weight: 173.045
Element category: lanthanide
Application of ytterbium
Infrared lasers, chemical reducing agent, decoy flares, stainless steel, stress gauges, nuclear medicine, monitoring earthquakes. Ytterbium isotopes are being used as a radiation source for portable X-ray machines. Ytterbium compounds are also used as catalysts in chemical industry.

REE has been widely used in electronics, petrochemical, metallurgy, machinery, energy, environmental protection, agriculture. Rare Earth can be used to produce fluorescent materials, rare earth hydride battery materials, electric light materials, magnetic materials, hydrogen storage materials, catalytic materials, precision ceramic materials, laser materials, superconducting materials, magnetostrictive materials, magnetic refrigeration materials, optical storage materials, optical fiber materials.
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, HREE (yttrium group).
