Gold

Gold is the most malleable and ductile metal known. It has been a valuable and highly sought-after precious metal for coinage, jewelry, and other arts since long before the beginning of recorded history. Besides its widespread monetary and symbolic functions, gold has many practical uses in dentistry, electronics, and other fields. Some gold salts do have anti-inflammatory properties and are used as pharmaceuticals in the treatment of arthritis and other similar conditions. However, only salts and radioisotopes of gold are of pharmacological value, as elemental gold is inert to all chemicals it encounters inside the body. In modern times, injectable gold has been proven to help to reduce the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis and tuberculosis. Its high malleability, ductility, resistance to corrosion and most other chemical reactions, and conductivity of electricity lead to many uses of gold, including electric wiring, colored glass production and even gold leaf eating. Gold leaf, flake or dust is used on and in some gourmet foods, notably sweets and drinks as decorative ingredient.

Lead

Lead is a main-group element. It is also counted as one of the heavy metals. It is used in building construction, lead-acid batteries, bullets and shots, weights, as part of solders, pewters, fusible alloys and as a radiation shield. It is also used as electrodes in the process of electrolysis. Lead compounds are used as a coloring element in ceramic glazes, notably in the colors red and yellow. It is frequently used in polyvinyl chloride plastic, which coats electrical cords. Lead, at certain exposure levels, is a poisonous substance to animals. It damages the nervous system and causes brain disorders. Excessive lead also causes blood disorders in mammals. It is restricted under the RoHS directive.

Properties Suppliers
Boron

Boron is a metalloid. The major industrial-scale uses of this compound offered by ESPI Intl. supplier of boron is in sodium perborate bleaches and the borax component of fiberglass insulation. Boron compounds are used in glasses, ceramics, synthesis of organic compounds, as an insecticide and are also a useful dopant. Buy high quality of boron at competitive prices.

Carbon

Carbon is nonmetallic and tetravalent-making four electrons available to form covalent chemical bonds. The major economic use of carbon other than food and wood is in the form of hydrocarbons, most notably the fossil fuel methane gas and crude oil (petroleum). Crude oil is used by the petrochemical industry to produce, amongst others, gasoline and kerosene, through a distillation process, in refineries. Cellulose is a natural, carbon-containing polymer produced by plants in the form of cotton, linen, and hemp. Cellulose is mainly used for maintaining structure in plants. Commercially valuable carbon polymers of animal origin include wool, cashmere and silk. Plastics are made from synthetic carbon polymers, often with oxygen and nitrogen atoms included at regular intervals in the main polymer chain. The raw materials for many of these synthetic substances come from crude oil. It can form alloys with iron, of which the most common is carbon steel. Graphite is combined with clays to form the 'lead' used in pencils used for writing and drawing. It is also used as a lubricant and a pigment, as a molding material in glass manufacture, in electrodes for dry batteries and in electroplating and electroforming, in brushes for electric motors and as a neutron moderator in nuclear reactors. Gem quality diamond is used in jewelry, and Industrial diamonds are used in drilling, cutting and polishing tools for machining metals and stone. Carbon black is used as the black pigment in printing ink, artist's oil paint and water colours, carbon paper, automotive finishes, India ink and laser printer toner. It is also used as a filler in rubber products such as tyres and in plastic compounds. Carbon acts as a macronutrient for the body, and is thus greatly required.

Cerium

Cerium is the most abundant of the rare earth elements. It is found in a number of minerals, the most important being monazite and bastnasite. It was named after the dwarf planet Ceres. Commercial applications of cerium are numerous. They include catalysts, additives to fuel to reduce emissions and to glass and enamels to change their color. Cerium oxide is an important component of glass polishing powders and phosphors used in screens and fluorescent lamps.

Suppliers
Cobalt

Cobalt is found naturally only in chemically combined form. It is used in the preparation of magnetic, wear-resistant and high-strength alloys. Cobalt silicate and cobalt(II) aluminate give a distinctive deep blue color to glass, smalt, ceramics, inks, paints and varnishes. Lithium cobalt oxide is widely used in lithium ion battery cathodes. Several cobalt compounds are used in chemical reactions as oxidation catalysts. Other uses of cobalt are in electroplating, owing to its attractive appearance, hardness and resistance to oxidation, and as ground coats for porcelain enamels.

Erbium

Erbium is a rare earth element which is associated with several other rare elements in the mineral gadolinite from Ytterby in Sweden. It is commonly used as a photographic filter, and because of its resilience it is useful as a metallurgical additive. It is also used in nuclear technology in neutron-absorbing control rods. When added to vanadium as an alloy, erbium lowers hardness and improves work ability. Erbium oxide has a pink color, and is sometimes used as a colorant for glass, cubic zirconia and porcelain. The glass is then often used in sunglasses and cheap jewelry. Erbium-doped optical silica-glass fibers are the active element in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, which are widely used in optical communications. A large variety of medical applications utilize erbium ion's 2940 nm emission, which is highly absorbed in water. Such shallow tissue deposition of laser energy is necessary for laser surgery, and the efficient production of steam for laser enamel ablation in dentistry.

Properties Suppliers
Kaolin

Kaolin is used in ceramics, medicine, coated paper, as a food additive in toothpaste, as a light diffusing material in white incandescent light bulbs, and in cosmetics. It is generally the main component in porcelain. It is also used in paint to extend titanium dioxide and modify gloss levels; in rubber for semi-reinforcing properties; and in adhesives to modify rheology. The largest use is in the production of paper, including ensuring the gloss on some grades of paper.

Properties Suppliers
BC 2191

BC 2191 is an emulsion of a polydimethylsiloxane designed to impart water repellency to glass wool and mineral substrates.

Properties Suppliers
Calcite

The carbonate mineral calcite is a calcium carbonate corresponding to the formula CaCO3 and is one of the most widely distributed minerals on the Earth's surface. Calcite crystals are hexagonal-rhombohedral, though actual calcite rhombohedrons are rare as natural crystals. It is used as chemical raw material for glass and ceramic industry.
