Brief Description of Cadmium Metal
Cadmium powder is available now
Cadmium is a chemical element with the symbol Cd and atomic number 48. Cadmium is a soft, malleable, ductile, silvery-white divalent metal. As a bulk metal, cadmium is insoluble in water and is not flammable; It was discovered in 1817 simultaneously by Stromeyer and Hermann, both in Germany, as an impurity in zinc carbonate.
Cadmium Metal has specific properties include: electrical conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility, high thermal ,low melting temperature, low coefficient of friction and its resistance to fatigue.

Application of Cd Powder
1.Used in the manufacture of batteries, electrical conductors and metal plating.
2.Cadmium is resistant to corrosion and is used as a protective plate on other metals.
3.It’s a semiconductor which finds application and utility in computer.
4.Cadmium is often used in bearing and solder.
5.It is used extensively in electroplating.
6.Used as a corrosion-resistant plating on steel, and cadmium compounds are used as red, orange and yellow pigments, to color glass, and to stabilize plastic.
7.In 2009, 86% of cadmium was used in batteries, predominantly in rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries.
8.Cadmium is used in the control rods of nuclear reactors, acting as a very effective neutron poison to control neutron flux in nuclear fission.
