Fine Cesium Chemicals
High-purity cesium chemicals enable catalysis and are used as a strong base in the chemical production process.
Fine cesium chemicals are highly reactive alkali metal compounds. Excluding francium, cesium has the lowest boiling and melting points, highest vapor pressure, highest density and lowest ionization potential of the alkali metals. These important characteristics are directly related to applications of cesium.
As a global leader in the specialty chemicals industry, we operate the world's largest proven reserve of pollucite at our Bernic Lake mine in Manitoba, Canada. We guarantee high and consistent purity levels in our products as they are monitored in Certificates of Analysis through a wide range of analyzed impurities.
Cesium use is driven by the economic benefit enabled by improved product performance. Fine cesium chemicals enable you to improve process performance, increase yields, reduce cycle times, prevent or mitigate pollution, all while increasing profits. Fine cesium chemicals therefore constitute a small, but critical component in a wide range of chemical applications, primarily for catalysis and as strong bases in chemical production. These applications typically require high-purity grades.
Cesium can enable improved product quality and increased throughput in pigment production, such as titanium dioxide (TiO2).
Cesium provides wide-ranging benefits to catalysts. In catalysts for sulfuric acid production, cesium increases production and reduces SO2 emissions.
In methyl methacrylate (MMA) catalysts, cesium increases production and extends catalyst life. Cesium is also used in catalysts for polyol, ethylene oxide, and custom catalysts for specialist applications.
Cesium’s uniquely low melting point means your brazing fluxes can enable more energy efficient and less costly brazing.
Cesium compounds’ properties as radiation absorbers and as strong emitters are used for scintillation across a range of medical diagnostic devices and research applications.
Lighting and Specialist Glass
Cesium’s high luminous efficacy and color spectrum is used in metal halide lighting. Also, using cesium, the refractive index of glass can be modified for optical applications or glass surfaces can be made corrosion- and breakage-resistant.
The unique properties of cesium can add performance benefits to a range of defense products, such as mortars and flares.
Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical
Cesium is widely used in organic synthesis for biomedical applications and as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
