Lanthanum Ingot

MATERIAL OVERVIEW

Characteristics: White, malleable, ductile metal. Oxidizes rapidly in air. Corrodes in moist air, soluble in acids, decomposes in water to lanthanum hydroxide and hydrogen. Hazards: Ignites spontaneously in powdered form. May delay blood clotting and cause liver injury.

ESPI Metals manufactures and sells high purity Lanthanum.  Forms include Lanthanum  ingot, Lanthanum  pieces, Lanthanum  rod,  Lanthanum  sheet, Lanthanum  foil, Lanthanum  powder, Lanthanum Sputtering Targets, and Lanthanum pellets.
