  • Scandium Element information, properties and uses

    Scandium is mainly used for research purposes. It has, however, great potential because it has almost as low a density as aluminium and a much higher melting point. An aluminium-scandium alloy has been used in Russian MIG fighter planes, high-end bicycle frames and baseball bats.

    An aluminium/scandium alloy frame will be less weakened by welding than any other aluminium alloy frame. As the welds are the weakest point of any frame, this allows the manufacturers to use

  • S&W Scandium Frames, How Durable Are They? The High

    2019-06-18· The Scandium frame also uses the alloy for the crane and that makes the crane easier to bend. If you don't treat the crane with gentleness all the time, it will bend. Even a steel gun's crane should be treated gently and not abused, but it will take more abuse than the light alloy. If the Scadium frame also features a Titanium cylinder, there are issues with those. Titanium cylinders have poor

    2020-03-06· Case in point I own a 1995 Manitou FS-DH frame its made from Easton 7005T6 aluminium, and I first noticed the cracks developing in its headtube in 2003. That's 8 years of usage from an aluminium frame, which is rather good. My 1991 Alpinestars Ti Mega frame which is made from US Grade 3Al-2.5V Titanium alloy only just had a fatigue crack develop last month. that's 15 years of

  • Bought a new scandium frame Weight Weenies

    2007-01-26· This evening I bought a scandium frame. Size 57 c-t and the weight is 1054 gram. I was looking for a cheap frame that didn't weight too much. I would build it up with Ultegra. But now I see the real weight and i think it deserves Dura Ace. But I will think about that. It is gonna be used for racing, so it has to be replaceble when I crash.

  • Scandium chemical element Britannica

    Scandium is separated from the other rare earths by precipitation of the insoluble potassium scandium sulfate or by extraction of scandium thiocyanate by diethyl ether. The metal itself was first prepared in 1938 by the electrolysis of potassium, lithium,and scandium chlorides in a eutectic mixture (i.e., a mixture having the lowest melting point possible with those components).

    Scandium is a chemical element with the symbol Sc and atomic number 21. A silvery-white metallic d-block element, it has historically been classified as a rare-earth element, together with yttrium and the lanthanides. It was discovered in 1879 by spectral analysis of the minerals euxenite and gadolinite from Scandinavia. Scandium, 21 Sc; Scandium; Pronunciation / ˈ s k æ n d i ə m / (SKAN

    2011-04-08· The frame is outside of its warranty, and I guess at this point, I don't really have a lot to lose by having him give it a go--I didn't find much reassurance googling "scandium frame repair." Am I boned, or is this frame salvageable? Disclaimer: these questions may sound really dumb to you, but I have absolutely no knowledge when it comes to welding or frame repair. If the frame is able to be
