Lithium carbonate

Lithium carbonate is derived from lithium raw materials in which materials are converted from spodumene (mineral), brine, and waste streams of other lithium compounds.

​Industrial applications

  • Rapid curing agent in silica-based cement and mortar (f.e. tile grout; self-leveling flooring compound)
  • Precursor in lithium-ion battery manufacturing (rechargeable battery)
  • Alkaline flux in ceramics manufacturing
  • Heat resistance agent in special glass manufacturing (f.e. telescope mirror)
  • Raw material in aluminum-lithium alloy manufacturing
  • Lithium carbonate is available in battery and technical grades.

Shelf Life

Under proper storage conditions, the shelf life is 12 months.

Lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) is stable at room temperature.
