Description of Scandium

ScandiumScandium is a chemical element originated from Scandinavia (with the Latin name Scandia). It was first mentioned in 1879 and observed by F. Nilson. The isolation was later accomplished and announced by F. Nilson. “Sc” is the canonical chemical symbol of scandium. Its atomic number in the periodic table of elements is 21 with location at Period 4 and Group 3, belonging to the d-block. The relative atomic mass of scandium is 44.955912(6) Dalton, the number in the brackets indicating the uncertainty.

Scandium, a transition metal with a silvery appearance, is often classified as a non-lanthanide rare earth element. It is widely used in various products, such as fluorescent lamps, baseball bats and bicycle frames. In industry, it is primarily alloyed to other metal compounds to produce high-performance materials. Currently, the only known concentrated sources of scandium are thortveitite, euxenite and gadolinite, which are rare minerals from Scandinavia and Madagascar. Read more about rare earth elements.


Our scandium sputter 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.

The product is very good. I used the scandium sputter target and the aluminum sputter target to coat the bicycles. They worked well. Will buy again.

Satisfying customers with high-quality products is always SAM's service tenet. We are very happy that our products are helpful for your project. Thank you for your trust.
