Securing nuclear power plants for people and the environment
We make nuclear power plants more secure for people and the environment
Silicone sealing and bonding solutions for the energy industry
Empowering the future of efficient energy production, distribution and consumption
Never in the history of humanity has energy played as crucial a role in our societies as it does today and never has it been as central to the way we envisage our future. Energy sources are today more diverse and abundant than ever and are at the heart of our economic, ecological and political debates. While trying to manage and potentially reduce our dependence on traditional fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal, most countries are attempting to find the right balance between economic development, energy efficiency, independence and environmental responsibility.
Silicone elastomers for manufacturing radiation shields in nuclear power plants
Safe and reliable silicone rubber materials to protect electrical circuits in all environments
Growing energy needs worldwide are being met by a great number of sources: from traditional production using oil, gas, coal and nuclear power, to renewable energy generated by hydro, solar and wind power. In all sectors, energy providers know they can count on the very high-performance levels and durability of Elkem Silicones for electrical insulation, which provides fire resistance, adhesion, as well as ease of processing for molding, sealing, bonding, and potting their components.
Silicone elastomer adhesives for sealing & shielding of sensitive electrical installations
Ensuring safe and reliable connections in low, medium and high-voltage electrical transmission
Demand for electrical energy is growing worldwide. Whether produced by traditional fossil fuels, nuclear power plants or various sources of renewable energy, reliable and safe cables are more crucial than ever. Manufacturers of equipment for high-voltage current transmission and low and medium-voltage distribution are demanding safer, more durable, innovative and cost-effective solutions. Silicone rubber accessories are increasingly the materials of choice for wire and cable accessories because they offer high mechanical and insulation properties, ensure heat and fire resistance and can be used for a wide range of cabling applications in various sectors: utilities, construction, railways, urban lighting, electrical vehicles (EV) rapid charging stations, etc.
Ferrosilicon for carbon steel and stainless steel for the reactor
Reducing costs for stainless steel production using specialty ferrosilicon
Ferrosilicon has a vital role to play in cost-effective production of stainless steel, thanks to its ability to recover the metallic chromium that would otherwise be oxidized during decarburization. At Elkem, we’re ready to help you streamline your alloying processes and boost the quality of your stainless steel, by identifying the best specialty ferrosilicon (FeSi) alloy for the task.
