Lanthanum Hexaboride Rod

Edgetech Industries, Advanced Ceramics Division supplies high-quality and competitive price advanced Lanthanum Hexaboride (LaB6) Rod.


Lanthanum Hexaboride Rod, LaB6 Rods


Lanthanum Boride, also called Lanthanum Hexaboride or LaB6, is a is an inorganic chemical, a boride of lanthanum and a refractory ceramic material. It is stable in vacuum; it has a high melting point of 2210 °C. It is insoluble in water and hydrochloric acid. Lanthanum Hexaboride (LaB6) Rod can be used widely in various fields beaded on its properties. We provide LaB6 Rod per drawing; dimensions will be relatively small compare to metal parts, regular purity is 99.5%.
