High-Purity Electrolytic Manganese: The Essential Raw Material for Modern Industry
Electrolytic manganese (EM) is a vital chemical raw material made from manganese ore or slag via electrolysis. Its high-purity manganese metal is highly chemically active and electrochemically excellent, making it valuable in many industries.
In metallurgy, EM enhances alloy steel's hardness and wear resistance. It serves as an oxidizing agent and catalyst in the chemical industry, and it's used in batteries and capacitors in electronics. The electroplating industry uses EM for anode materials and manganese-plated products. It's also key for producing chemical raw materials and pharmaceutical intermediates.
Producing EM involves melting, electrolysis, and refining, requiring strict control to ensure high quality and stability. Ensuring raw material purity, stable equipment, and managing environmental concerns are essential.
