Process Flow Diagram


Gadolinium rare earth fluoride is a compound with important applications. The following are the main application areas of gadolinium fluoride:

 1.Gadolinium fluoride can be used in the manufacture of scintillators, especially in medical diagnostic techniques such as nuclear medicine imaging and CT scanning.

 2.Gadolinium fluoride can be used as an optical material. Due to its high refractive index and low light absorption properties, it is widely used in the manufacture of optical devices such as lasers, optical fibers and optical lenses.

 3.Gadolinium fluoride can also be used in the manufacture of specialty alloys and the electrolytic production of gadolinium metal.



In sealed double polyethylene bags. The bags are packed in steel drums containing 25 or 50 Kgs net each.


Specification is adjustable as per user's special requirement.
