Jul 25, 2019 / 506 views

For those who don't touch metal silicon, silicon metal is definitely a distant thing that can't be far away. For those who know about metal silicon, metal silicon is definitely a magical thing, because it exists in all aspects of life. There are many silicon metal grades. Today we are talking about metal silicon 553.

What you should know about silicon 553 specifications and uses

The name of metal silicon 553

Where does the name of silicon metal 553 come from? In fact, it is mainly related to its ingredients. Metallic silicon is usually classified according to the content of three main impurities of iron, aluminum and calcium. In the silicon metal 553, the iron content is less than or equal to 0.5%, the aluminum content is less than or equal to 0.5%, and the calcium content is less than or equal to 0.3%.

What is the price of metal silicon 553?

I mentioned it in the article before, I won’t say more here.

What are the origins of silicon metal?

Metallic silicon is widely distributed throughout the world. Brazil, Australia, France, South Africa, Thailand, Germany, Norway, China, etc. are distributed. But China has an absolute dominant position in the metal silicon industry. Production is not only much higher than domestic consumption, but also much higher than the world's total demand for silicon metal. China's silicon production capacity reached 4.6 million tons (source CNIA).

Therefore, in the global scope, China's metal silicon is very famous, and there are many metal silicon manufacturers in China, which can produce metal silicon products that meet the needs of users all over the world.

Application of silica metal 553

It can be said that most of the silicon metal  grade 553 is used in aluminum products. Aluminum products such as aluminum alloy windows and aluminum alloys are commonly found in all of them. Aluminum is very soft, and after adding silicon, it increases the hardness and strength, and has been widely used. The largest customer of metal silicon manufacturers is also the aluminum factory.

In addition, Silicon based polymers products such as lubricants, greases, resins, skin and hair products and the solar energy industry will see metal silicon.

How is the market for metal silicon 553?

Growth in the silicon metal market is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, mainly due to increased demand for conventional aluminum and chemical applications, a rapidly growing solar industry and promising battery market demand. Metal silicon products such as silicon 553 and silicon metal grade 441 will continue to shine on the future stage.
