Description of Thulium:
Thulium is silvery-gray, soft, malleable and ductile. It is the second least abundant of rare-earth elements. It can be cut with a knife.
Thulium Metal, is mainly used in making superalloys, and has some application in ferrites (ceramic magnetic materials) used in microwave equipment and also as a radiation source of portable X-ray. Thulium potentially has use in ferrites, ceramic magnetic materials that are used in microwave equipment. it is used in arc lighting for its unusual spectrum. Thulium Metal can be further processed to various shapes of ingots, pieces, wires, foils, slabs, rods, discs and powder.
Specifications of Thulium Metal:
Thulium Metal Powder
-40, -100, -325 mesh or other sizes
Thulium Metal Sputtering Target
Disks, Plates, and other shapes.
We also supply Thulium foil, sheet, rod, wire and other forms on request.
Application of Thulium:
Portable X-ray devices use thulium that has been bombarded in a nuclear reactor as a radiation source. Thulium-170 is also gaining popularity as an X-ray source for cancer treatment via brachytherapy. In addition, Holmium-chromium-thulium triple-doped Yttrium aluminum garnet is an active laser medium material.
Packaging of Thulium Metals:
SAM’s Thulium metals are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
Other Rare Earth Elements:
Scandium, Europium, Ytterbium, Dysprosium, Cerium, Lanthanum
