According to strict chemical element classification, silicon is not a metal, but a non-metal. But silicon has many properties close to metal. The silicon block also has metallic luster in appearance, much like metal. Therefore, it is often called metallic silicon in the industry.
Silicon powder is to grind metal silicon blocks into powder. The particle size of metal silicon powder is between 0-325mesh.

Silicon metal powder applications
1. Industrial silicon powder is widely used in refractory materials and powder metallurgy industries. It is used to improve the high temperature resistance and wear resistance of the product. Its products are widely used in steelmaking furnaces, kilns and kiln furniture.
2. Metal silicon powder can be used to produce silicone oil and silicone rubber antiseptic.
3. Industrial silicon powder can be made into monocrystalline silicon. The processed silicon wafers are widely used in high-tech fields. It is an essential raw material for integrated circuits and electronic components.
4. It can be used in metallurgical casting industry. Industrial silicon powder is used as a non-ferrous alloy additive.
