Germanium Products

Sino Santech is engaged in re-processing of high purity Germanium in forms of granule, piece, powder and dioxide for use in optical fiber, infrared optics and polymerization catalyst. Zone refined Germanium ingot is processed into monocrystalline Germanium from 5N to 6N, Germanium granule in size range from 1mm to 40 mm, Germanium powder in particle size range from 100mesh to 800 mesh, nano powder and Germanium dioxide(GeO2) with lower chlorinity.

Germanium Sesquioxide

Germanium Sesquioxide (Organic Germanium) is one of the ingredients of many medicinal plants, ginseng and other medicinal plants are rich in organic germanium, with a unique health function. Since 1971, a scholar synthesis the carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide (GeCH2COOH 203), referred to as Ge-132 and confirmed having anticancer activity. Since then opened the study of organic compounds, for high efficient, low toxic organic germanium drug prelude. Organic Germanium is white powder, tasteless, not soluble in ethanol, ethyl ether, soluble in alkali. Its maximum solubility in water is 10.8g/L, PH of saturated aqueous solution is 2.5~2.6.

Germanium Oxide, germanium dioxide

Germanium Oxide

Germanium Oxide (GeO2) is a pre-cursor to the metallic form of germanium. As a white powder, it is used directly as a catalyst in the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic or converted to germane gas (GeH4) for the semiconductor industry. Germanium oxide is also used in the manufacture of phosphors, glass colorants and other electronic compounds.
Sino Santech is a main supplier of 99.999% min germanium dioxide and can sell material in small quantity. Our material has been used in the production of germane gas (GeH4), in the production of PET plastics, as an input material for zone-refined germanium ingots and as a glass colorant.

Germanium Powder, germanium metal powder

Germanium Powder

Our unique technology enables the preparation of Germanium Powder with low oxygen content and uniform size distributions. The process’ s flexibility enables us to customize powders, helping you meet your current and new product and business needs and turning challenges into opportunities.
Sino Santech has invested significantly to develop a high performance ball-milling technology for the manufacture of fine Germanium powders. Part of this investment was to establish a production facility in Changsha city, our headquarters.

germanium granule, germanium piece

Germanium Granule

Germanium Granule is reprocessed by high purity zone refined Germanium ingot in the vacuum and clean workshop. Its purity is 99.999% min with size range of 1-40 mm. Sino Santech manufactures evaporation grade germanium metal granule, the size of 1mm to 10 mm pieces are in excess of 99.999% pure and can easily be used in vacuum chamber crucibles.

Germanium Metal, germanium ingot, germanium bar

Germanium Metal

The world's largest producer of refined Germanium is China, which accounts for about 70 percent of the over 150 metric tonnes produced worldwide each year. Other major producing countries include Russia and Canada. High purity Germanium metal ingots are most commonly produced by upgrading germanium dioxide (GeO2) via a zone refining process. Zone refining germanium involves passing raw material through a hot zone that creates high purity molten metal. Impurities collect in the molten material and are pushed back as the germanium metal solidifies as it exits the hot zone.
Sino Santech is a supplier of 99.999% zone refined germanium ingot. Germanium ingot is used in the production of infrared and specialty optical lenses, semiconductor and solar cell substrates.
