Description of Cerium Sputtering Target


Cerium is a chemical element originated from Ceres, the Roman God of agriculture. It was first mentioned in 1803 and observed by H. Klaproth, J. Berzelius, and W. Hisinger. Cerium is an iron-grey lustrous metal, and is malleable and oxidizes very readily at room temperature, especially in moist air. It is the most reactive of the rare earth metals except for europium. Both alkali and acid solutions attack the metals rapidly. The pure metal is likely to ignite if scratched with a knife-like instrument.

Application of Cerium Sputtering Target

• Use to manufacture aluminum alloys and in some steels and irons.

• In cast iron, it opposes graphitization and produces a malleable iron

• In steels, it removes sulfides and oxides and completely detoxifies.

• In stainless steel, it is used as a precipitation-hardening agent.

Handling Notes

1. No bonding service is presently available for this material. 2. This material has high chemical activity when exposed to the environment. Oil packaging and clean procedure are required to prevent it from chemical reactions.


Our cerium sputtering targets are clearly tagged and labeled externally to ensure efficient identification and quality control. Great care is taken to avoid any damage which might be caused during storage or transportation.
