Lithium Carbonate in the Glass Market


Lithium is present in the glass market through applications such as lighting fixtures, screens, and high-tech applications such as specific optical products. Its use provides a decrease in the melting point and viscosity of glasses during heat treatments, and less thermal expansion. In addition, a marked benefit is experienced in terms of energy, and durability of industrial facilities. The lithium we produce is also used to make micro or nanocrystals that function as components in lithium batteries, achieving greater capacity and duration.

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.
