Fine Cesium Chemicals
High-purity cesium chemicals can deliver critical performance and process improvements.
Fine cesium chemicals’ unique properties, known as the "cesium effect," can enable you to improve process performance, increase yields, reduce cycle times, prevent or mitigate pollution, all while increasing profits. Fine cesium chemicals therefore constitute a small-but-critical component in a wide range of applications
Our diverse portfolio of high-purity cesium chemicals deliver critical performance and process improvements across a wide range of industries and applications. We operate the world's largest proven reserve of cesium-rich pollucite at our Bernic Lake mine in Manitoba, Canada. We leverage our global supply chain and position as a leader in specialty chemicals to offer a broad portfolio of high-purity cesium compounds, both as salts and in solutions, to meet you performance and process needs.
Additionally, we offer cesium formate brines as a drilling and completion solution for the oil and gas industry.
Solutions For a Wide Range of Applications
Cesium can enable improved product quality and increased throughput in pigment production, such as titanium dioxide (TiO2).
Cesium provides wide-ranging benefits to catalysts. In catalysts for sulfuric acid production, cesium increases production and reduces SO2 emissions.
In methyl methacrylate (MMA) catalysts, cesium increases production and extends catalyst life. Cesium is also used in catalysts for polyol, ethylene oxide, and custom catalysts for specialist applications.
Cesium’s uniquely low melting point means your brazing fluxes can enable more energy efficient and less costly brazing.
Cesium compounds’ properties as radiation absorbers and as strong emitters are used for scintillation across a range of medical diagnostic devices and research applications.
Lighting and Specialist Glass
Cesium’s high luminous efficacy and color spectrum is used in metal halide lighting. Also, using cesium, the refractive index of glass can be modified for optical applications or glass surfaces can be made corrosion- and breakage-resistant.
The unique properties of cesium can add performance benefits to a range of defense products, such as mortars and flares.
Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical
Cesium is widely used in organic synthesis for biomedical applications and as an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).
