Fluorite (Fluorite), also known as fluorspar, is a mineral, its
main ingredient is calcium fluoride (CaF2), containing impurities,
Ca is often replaced by Y and other rare earth elements, such as Ce
substitution. Its chemical component also contains small amounts of
Fe2O3, SiO2 and a little of Cl, O3, He, etc. Natural fluorite often
has significant bright colors, lower hardness than a knife. It can
be used in the preparation of hydrogen fluoride: CaF2 + H2SO4 =
CaSO4 + 2HF ↑; artificial fluorite technology is not yet mature in
front, is the manufacture of optical glass lens materials.
With fluorite ore mining, high-quality fluorite ore less and less,
but smelting industry for high-quality fluorite ore demand has
grown, so fluorspar derivatives was born.
The main purpose
Metallurgical grade fluorite ball is to solve the smelting process
breathable, environmentally friendly, easy to manipulate and low
phosphorus special requirements, which is made of metallurgical
grade fluorspar powder plus inorganic adhesive. It replaces the
fluorite ore is widely used in steel smelting, non-ferrous metal
smelting, ferroalloy smelting of iron craft production and other
In the aluminum industry, CaF2 can be used for the production of
aluminum fluoride, hydrofluoric acid, synthetic cryolite, sodium
fluoride and magnesium fluoride.
Remark: Chemical composition and size above can be optimized
according to custom's requirement.
