Electrolytic Iron

Electrolytic iron is the purest form of iron, whereby commercial iron has all impurities removed through electrolysis. This electrochemical refining process helps to ensure uniform chemical composition and tight particle size distributions.

Cathode deposit is supplied as small, smooth, irregularly shaped iron pieces.

Chip from bright annealed and polished high-purity electrolytic iron chips, nominally 3/32” x 3/32” (2.5 x 2.5 mm) approximately 1/64” (400 μm) thick. The chips grade is known for its extremely low sulfur and carbon content and smooth polished uniform chips, which are easy to measure and disperse.

Powder grade is available as annealed, unannealed in three different mesh sizes, or kosher certified.

Purity 97%+
Typical Applications

Electrolytic iron is used in a wide range of applications including food enrichment, pharmaceutical and nutraceuticals related manufacturing, manufacturing of aniline and other synthetic organic dyes, a filler for plastic and epoxy compounds, and laboratory analytical equipment

Packaging Options

Jars, pails, drums, multi-ply paper bags, bulk bags, and fiberboard containers.

Sustainable Qualities

Electrolytic Iron is a sustainable material used in a variety of applications, including steel production, magnetic materials, and water treatment. It is produced through an environmentally friendly process that involves the electrolysis of iron salts, resulting in a high-purity iron product. Because it is made from a renewable resource, Electrolytic Iron is a sustainable choice for various industries. Its unique magnetic properties also make it ideal for use in sustainable energy technologies, such as wind turbines and electric motors. Its recyclability and durability also contribute to a circular economy by reducing waste and promoting reuse.
