Project Description

SILVER MERCURY

UNIVERSAL CHEMICAL IS YOUR SPECIALIST SUPPLIER OF SILVER MERCURY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA.

Mercury (also known as quicksilver) is the only metal which is liquid at room temperature – it is well known for it’s use in thermometers, but it is also widely used in scientific research, for dental restoration and in lighting.

Mercury forms alloys with different metals easily – these alloys (called amalgams) can be used for creating dental fillings, to capture fine gold and are in use to create long-life batteries.

IT’S MAIN APPLICATIONS ARE:
  • AS CATALYST FOR THE PRODUCTION OF PVC (POLYVINYL CHLORIDE).
  • IN ENERGY EFFICIENT CFL (COMPACT FLUORESCENT LIGHT) BULBS.
  • IN CATHODE CELLS.
  • IN PAINTS.
