Dysprosium (Dy) Metal

Dysprosium (Dy) is a hard, bright shiny silvery-white rare earth metal that is never found in nature as a free element, but found within various minerals. It reacts slowly to moisture in the air and burns readily. Dysprosium has high magnetic strength and is heat resistant to demagnetization, making it an attractive component for magnets used in green energy, i.e., motors of wind turbines and electric vehicles, increasing demand.

Purity: 99.9% (REO basis)
Typical Applications

Dysprosium is used to make alloys for neodymium-based magnets. Another use for Dysprosium is in control rods for nuclear reactors. Dysprosium is used in making laser materials in conjunction with vanadium and other elements. Dysprosium is one of the components of Terfenol-D, along with iron and terbium.
