Magnesium Elektron - Service & Innovation in Magnesium
Magnesium Elektron Elektron® R176 Magnesium Raspings
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Magnesium Alloy

Material Notes: Elektron® magnesium raspings have a coarse shape to provide maximum surface area and reactivity. Different lengths, widths and thickness can be supplied. The attached information sheets give details on our standard products. However, Magnesium Elektron are able to custom manufacture all products to your specific needs. We are also able to manufacture a product according to your sample or specification. Our production processes allow us to supply a high quality, consistent product. All our rasping products can be supplied in either standard or high purity grade. Elektron® raspings are typically used in the formation of Grignard reagents, for the synthesis of complex organic compounds in the pharmaceutical, chemical, plastics, and agricultural industries. Raspings possess a large surface area, which helps to control the vigorous nature of the reaction. Other areas of application include catalysts for resins, flavors and fragrances.
