Process Flow Diagram


In the field of optics, lanthanum fluoride is widely used in the preparation of scintillators required for modern medical image display technology and nuclear science, as well as rare earth crystal laser materials. In addition, lanthanum fluoride can be used to manufacture materials such as fluoride glass optical fibers and rare earth infrared glasses.



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