Rare Earth catalyst can raise gasoline production by 5% and increase the capacity of the cracking equipment by 20-30%. Rare earth can also be employed in paints drier and thermal stabilizer for plastics and so on.
Ceramic powders are necessary ingredients in most engineering ceramics, electronic ceramics and ceramic coatings. With telecommunications being one of the largest ceramic industries, dielectric resonators, ceramic filters and multi-layer capacitors are continually being developed to increase performance. Y2O3 stabilized ZrO2, Nd2O3, La2O3 and Y2O3 are used to make different kinds of advanced ceramics.
Recent years, technological innovations, especially increasing demand on smart electronics and devices, like iPhone and iPad, resulted in manifold applications using Rare Earths which lead to a steep increase in their demand.
In energy application, Rare Earth are advantageous because of their relatively low toxicity. Rechargeable lanthanum-nickel-hydride (La-Ni-H) batteries are replacing Ni-Cd batteries batteries in automobiles.
Cerium compounds widely used in glass additives and glass-polishing compounds, while Lanthanum doped or Erbium optical glass features high refraction and low dispersion, can efficiently simplify optical system, expand visual angle and minimize lens.
Neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets are the most powerful permanent magnets available today, has a combination of very high remanence and coercivity, and comes with a wide range of grades, sizes and shapes. Recently years, Dysprosium and Terbium are doped to achieve better performance.
Many of the frequently used contrast agents for MRI(Magnetic Resonance Imaging) are based on the Gadolinium, which is paramagnetic. As advances in areas such as nanotechnology continue to be made, new areas of application for Rare Earths in medicine are sure to open up with their unique properties to be applied to the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions.
The Rare Earth ferrosilicon is widely used in metallurgy as the inoculant, nodulizer and deoxidizer to improve the temperature of the molten steel. In recent years, more and more pure Rare Earth metals are applied into manufacturing high performance alloy and superalloys.
Super pure Rare Earths are widely as dopants in high-concentration optical fibers, With the development of low-loss fibers and the availability of laser pump sources, there has been a renewed interest in rare earth doped glasses in fiber form. High purity grades are also the most important dopants for laser crystals, lens, and optical systems.
