Iron Dust 99%
Odor: characteristic
Use: Iron dust is composed of fine grained granular material. The dust form of some elements can be highly combustible as a result of its high surface area. American Elements specializes in producing high purity Iron Dust with the smallest possible average grain sizes for use in preparation of pressed and bonded sputtering targets and in Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes including Thermal and Electron Beam (E-Beam) Evaporation, Low Temperature Organic Evaporation, Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), Metallic-Organic and Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD). Iron dust is composed of large free flowing particles. Dusts are also useful in any application where high surface areas are desired such as water treatment and in fuel cell and solar applications. Nanoparticles (See also Nanotechnology Information and Quantum Dots) also produce very high surface areas. Our standard Dust particle sizes average in the range of - 325 mesh, - 100 mesh, 10-50 microns and submicron (< 1 micron). We can also provide many materials in the nanoscale range. Materials are produced using crystallization, solid state and other ultra high purification processes such as sublimation. American Elements specializes in producing custom compositions for commercial and research applications and for new proprietary technologies. American Elements also casts any of the rare earth metals and most other advanced materials into rod, bar or plate form, as well as other machined shapes and through other processes such as nanoparticles (See also application discussion at Nanotechnology Information and at Quantum Dots) and in the form of solutions and organometallics. See safety data and research below and pricing/lead time above. We also produce Iron as rod, ingot, pieces, pellets, disc, granules, wire, and in compound forms, such as oxide. Other shapes are available by request. Iron dust has a wide range of bulk densities, becoming light and fluffy when loosened or dense and unable to flow when compressed. Dusts have been studied by chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, chemists, physicists and geologists on account of their importance to industry, medicine, and earth science.

Formulations/Preparations:
•good wrought iron contains no more than 0.035% carbon, but also contains 0.075-0.15% silicon, 0.1-0.25% phosphorus, <0.02% sulfur, and 0.06-0.1% manganese, not all of which are alloyed with the iron. •cast iron contains 2-4% carbon and varying amounts of silicon, phosphorus, sulfur, and manganese, to obtain a wide range of physical and chemical properties. alloying elements such as silicon, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, copper, and titanium may be added in amounts varying from a few tenths to 30% or more. •steel is a generic name for a large group of iron-carbon alloys in which the carbon content is about 2%. to this basic steel, other alloying elements may be added, the more common types of which are aluminum, chromium, cobalt, chromium-nickel, chromium-aluminum, manganese, nickel, silicon, and tungsten, each of which has particular uses arising from its special properties.
