American Elements
is a manufacturer and supplier specializing in the Fluoride of Cerium, Lanthanum, Erbium, Ytterbium, Neodymium, Yttrium and other Rare Earth elements, Gallium, Hafnium, Scandium, Niobium, Indium, Ruthenium, Zirconium as well as other advanced elements. These Fluorides are marketed under the trademark AE Fluorides™.

The Fluoride is generally the most insoluble form. Typically our customers use the Fluoride when oxide forms would cause oxygen contamination. For example, fluoride is used in optic, laser, crystal and glass applications. Fluoride is corrosive and very toxic.

We supply Fluoride forms of the transition metals Platinum, Silver, Gold, Rhodium and other elements. Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% which are sometimes referred to as 2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N. These products are also available in an ultra dry form.

Erbium Fluoride (ErF3) PowderPhysical properties include nanopowder, nano particle, submicron, - 325 mesh, rod, foil, and high surface area fluoride with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified.  We produce larger - 40 mesh, - 100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and < 0.5 mm,  2 mm, 5 mm and other mm size shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces, too.

The most common commercial sources of flouride are the minerals fluorite and fluorapatite. The name Fluoride originates from the Latin word "fluo" meaning flow.
