Applications of Lithium_


Lubricant greases

Lithium hydroxide is the most widely used thickening agent in multipurpose greases for automotive and industrial lubrications.

 

Batteries

Because of its energy density and lack of "memory effect", Lithium-ion and lithium polymer rechargeable batteries are the most efficient power source for mobile telephones, laptops and other electronic portable devices. The batteries for new models of electric vehicles (EV, HEV) are also based on lithium compounds.


Ceramic glass

Lithium carbonate is a key component in the formulation of the ceramic glass used in flat-top cooking ranges, reducing the thermal expansion coefficient of the glass and thus making it resistant to high temperatures.
