Lithium Carbonate in the Ceramic Market


Lithium is used in the production of ceramics because its chemical properties increase their surface tension. An important aspect is the energy saving in the creation of ceramics, since they generate a lower firing temperature compared to their similar ones. Its effect is to lower the melting point of the ceramic and improve the flow properties of the molten material, reduce the coefficient of thermal expansion and viscosity of the finished product.

What is lithium carbonate used for?

Lithium and its derivatives constitute a key input for the development of electromobility and the technologies that are moving the world; It is also very important for the pharmaceutical industry and for industrial uses. As one of the largest producers in the world in this market and with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the market, we are committed to the development and sustainability of the lithium industry, where our effort aims to deliver high quality products in a timely manner. , but also to make significant investments in order to guarantee the availability of the product.


Lithium uses and applications


We are one of the largest lithium producers in the world operating in the Salar de Atacama in Chile, where there are vast reserves of lithium-containing brines. Lithium plays a crucial role in different applications: energy storage in electric cars, special mirrors for advanced telescopes, lubricating greases and health, among others.
