All about Molybdenum

Molybdenum (Mo) is a silvery-white metal which has a very high melting point which is why it is often used in high temperature circumstances. When used in an alloy, it greatly increases hardness and strength of the resulting mixture which is why the vast majority of molybdenum is used for this purpose. Molybdenum is in ...

All about Iron

Iron (Fe) is one of the most important micronutrients and is quite abundant. In nature, it is not usually found in its elemental form because when it is exposed to the elements it readily oxidises into rust (Iron Oxide, Fe2O3). Most of the iron found on earth is in the outer and outer core of ...

All about Copper

Copper (Cu) is one of the few metals that can sometimes be found in its raw form in nature. This is why it was one of first metals to be used by humans (approximately 10,000 years ago). It has a bright pink-orange colour but the copper surface tarnishes to a brown colour fairly quickly when ...

All about Sodium

Sodium (Na) is soft, highly reactive metal with a silvery-white appearance. The chemical symbol for it, Na, comes from its latin name, Natrium. It is a highly abundant element but because it is so reactive, it is never found in its elemental form. It is found in several different compounds, most commonly along with chloride ...

All about Silicon

Silicon (Si) is neither a metal or non-metal. It is usually described as a “metalloid” or semi-metal. It can exist as a shiny crystalline substance but it is never really found in this form in nature. Pure crystalline silicon forms a thin layer of oxide on its surface which prevents oxidation of the pure silicon ...

The 660w Maxibright Daylight LED Grow Light Arrives

The traditional HPS grow light for all intents and purposes is a fixed point light source. A lamp is installed inside a reflector, which then spreads the light out to cover an area such as 1.2m squared. For a long time, the design of LED grow lights has mimicked this idea, with all the LEDs ...
