Process Flow Diagram


Lutetium  fluoride powder LuF3 is used in nuclear energy, optics, electronics, medicine and chemistry.

1. Optics: Lutetium  fluoride  powder  can be used to manufacture optical lenses, prisms, windows and other optical components due to its properties such as high thermal conductivity, high refractive index and low dispersion.

2. Electronics: Lutetium fluoride can be used to manufacture heat sinks and circuit boards for electronic components due to its high thermal conductivity and low electrical conductivity.

3. Medical field: Lutetium fluoride can be used as a contrast agent in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for medical diagnosis.

4. Chemical field: Lutetium fluoride can be used as a catalyst, fluorinating agent and other chemical substances for the synthesis of drugs, dyes and other organic compounds.



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


Specification is adjustable as per client's special requirement.
