Application of Metal Scandium

1. Scandium Metal is applied in optical coating, catalyst, electronic ceramics and laser industry.

2. The main application of Scandium by weight is in Aluminium-Scandium alloys for minor aerospace industry components.

3. It is also applied to make super alloy.

4. Used for high power metal halide lamps(Sc-Na lamps), solar battery, high-energy radiation nuclear shielding (gamma ray sources)

5. Can be used for the production of various aircraft instead of aluminum.

Properties of Metal Scandium

Scandium is a soft metal with a silvery appearance.

Scandium is very light, and its melting point is much higher than that of aluminum.

It develops a slightly yellowish or pinkish cast when oxidized  by air.

It is susceptible to weathering and dissolves slowly in most dilute acids.
