Properties of Palladium
Palladium is ductile (can be stretched) and malleable (can be compressed).
It is very resistant to corrosion in air.
It has an ability to absorb a large amount of hydrogen, up to 900 times its own weight.
Uses of Palladium
Palladium is primarily used in catalytic converters for vehicles,
converting up to 90% of harmful gases in vehicle exhaust into harmless
substances such as water vapor.
It is also used in jewelry (e.g., for alloying with pure gold to form white gold),
dentistry (e.g., for fillings), watch making, surgical instruments, electrical contacts,
ceramic capacitors, as well as other uses.
Palladium ASTM Specification
Surepure Chemetals sells pure palladium covered
by the ASTM B589 specification for refined palladium
and by the ASTM B683 specification for pure palladium electrical contact material.
Harmonized System Export Codes for Palladium
The HS code for semi-manufactured palladium (including wire and sheet) is 7110.29.00.00.
The HS code for palladium powder is 7110.21.00.00.
The HS code for palladium-based chemicals is 2843.90.00.00.
Surepure Chemetals sell palladium in several forms:
Standard diameters range from 0.004" to 0.257".
We use the term "wire" for smaller diameters that are supplied on a spool or as a coil.
We use the term "rod" when the diameter is large enough that it can be supplied as a straight length.
Standard thicknesses range from 0.002" to 0.128".
We use the terms "foil" and "sheet" for shorter cut pieces (usually up to 12" long) that are usually supplied flat. "Foil" is very thin; "Sheet" is a little thicker and is thus a little stronger and bends less.
We use the terms "strip" and "ribbon" for longer pieces that are usually supplied on a spool or a cylindrical core. "Ribbon" is somewhat narrow (usually less than an inch wide); "Strip" is wider.
Standard thicknesses range from 0.004" to 0.128".
Standard diameters range from 0.188" to 2.5". 16 to 30 gauge
"Target," "disc," and "circle" all refer to metal that is flat and round, like a coin.
They are sometimes used as sputtering targets for physical vapor deposition (PVD).
We supply pure palladium powder and grain as well as palladium-based chemicals.
We use the term "powder" for smaller grain sizes, and
we use the term "grain" for larger grain sizes.
Some palladium-based chemicals available are Palladium(II) chloride, Palladium(II) oxide,
Palladium(II) oxide hydrate, Palladium(II) sulfate dihydrate, and Tetraamminepalladium(II) Nitrate.
