Typical Chemical Analysis
Silver powder is a chemical element and its chemical formula is Ag. It is a soft, white, lustrous transition metal. This powder exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal. Silver metal is used in many bullion coins, alongside gold. While it is more abundant than gold and it is employed in collar panels, jewelry, ornaments, water filtration, high-value tableware, and utensils. It is applied in electrical contacts and conductors.
Silver powder: It is employed in specialized mirrors, window coatings, in catalysis of chemical reactions, as a colorant in stained glass and in specialized confectionery. Silver compounds are employed in X-Ray and photographic film. Dilute solutions of silver nitrate and other silver compounds are employed as disinfectants and micro biocides. It is also added to bandages and utilized in wound-dressings, catheters, and other medical instruments.
The major use of silver besides coinage throughout most of history was in the production of jewelry. The paint of silver is used for making printed circuits and other electronic applications. Silver can be deposited on glass or metals by distinct techniques such as chemical deposition, electrodeposition, or by evaporation to make mirrors.
Silver Powder (the most important silver compound) is utilized extensively in photography. It is employed also for silvering mirrors, for silver-plating, in indelible inks, in medicine and for the production of other silver chemicals. Silver ions also act as a catalyst by absorbing oxygen, which kills bacteria by interfering with their respiration. It exhibits antibiotic property, along with its non-toxicity. So it has given silver an essential role in medicine.
Engine bearings depend on silver. The strongest bearing is manufactured from steel that has been electroplated with silver. Silver's high melting point allows it to withstand the high temperature of engines. Silver powder also acts as a lubricant to reduce friction between a ball bearing and its housing. It manifests antimicrobial properties that make it useful to water purification and this is now being applied in food and hygiene.
