Strontium (Sr) Metal

Strontium Metal (Sr) is a silvery-colored alkaline earth metal with physical and chemical properties similar to others in its family. It is a soft, silvery metal chemically reactive with oxygen and water. It is kept under mineral oil to prevent oxidation, which causes the metal to turn yellowish.
Finely powdered strontium metal is pyrophoric. Strontium salts impart a bright red color when burned and are used in flares and pyrotechnics.

Purity: 99.5% – 99.9%
Typical Applications

Strontium Metal (Sr) is used to produce ferrite magnets and refine zinc. The primary use for strontium was in glass for color television cathode-ray tubes which prevented X-ray emission, but this use has declined. Strontium isotopes are the best high-energy beta-emitters and can generate electricity for space vehicles, remote weather stations, and navigation buoys.

Packaging Options

Ampouled under argon with a thin oil layer and packaged under argon
