Silicon powder: 

Silicon powder is a non-toxic, tasteless, non-pollution inorganic non-metallic material. The silicon content of silicon powder is more than 99%.

Because it has good temperature resistance, acid and alkali corrosion resistance, high thermal conductivity, high insulation, low expansion, stable chemical properties, hardness, and other excellent performance, it is widely used in chemical, electronics, integrated circuits, electrical appliances, plastics, coatings, advanced paint, rubber, and other fields. 


Metal silicon powder: 

Silicon metal powder is a powdery substance formed by grinding silicon metal.  Different metal silicon powder, the content of each element is also different, the common 441 metal silicon powder, 553 metal silicon powder, 97 metal silicon powder, and so on. 

The main component of silicon metal powder is crystalline silicon.  At first, it was blocky and the color was relatively stable.  After a series of crushing or grinding processes, it changes to a powder state.  In general, it's not active. 


Different Properties and Applications: 

Silicon powder: 

Significantly improve the performance of compression resistance, flexure resistance, permeability resistance, corrosion resistance, impact resistance and wear resistance. 

It has the function of retaining water, preventing segregation, and bleeding, and greatly reducing concrete pumping resistance. 

Significantly prolong the service life of the concrete. 

The ground ash of shotcrete and castable is greatly reduced and the thickness of the single shotcrete layer is increased. 

It is the necessary component of high-strength concrete and the engineering application of concrete.

Can be used in semiconductor technology. 

High purity silicon (> 99.99%) is used in computer microchips, transistors, and solar cells. 

It can be used as raw material for reaction bonded silicon nitride (RBSN) and metal infiltration for high purity silicon carbide 


Metal silicon powder: 

Metal silicon powder has strong high-temperature resistance, so many times in refractory materials and powder metallurgy production, adding an appropriate amount of metal silicon powder can greatly improve the high-temperature resistance of metal silicon powder. 

Silicon metal powder is usually added in the production of some wear-resistant castings to improve the wear resistance of castings. 

It is also deoxidizing. 

Silicon metal powder can be used as a deoxidizer and alloy additive in steelmaking. At the same time, the production of casting metal silicon powder can also be used for inoculation.
