Tellurium (Te) is a brittle, mildly toxic, rare, silver-white metalloid that is crystalline. It has low electronegativity, is a p-type semiconductor, and shows greater conductivity in certain directions.

Typical Purity: 99.5%, 99.99%, 99.9985%, 99.999%, and 99.9999+%
Typical Applications

Tellurium is used to improve the machinability of copper and stainless steel. When combined with lead, tellurium increases resistance to sulfuric acid while improving strength and hardness.
It is used to improve mechanical and thermal properties in vulcanized rubber.
Tellurium has potential applications in photoconductive materials, solar cells, and infrared detectors.
