Lanthanum

Lanthanum is the first element of the lanthanides, which gave it its name. Lanthanum is a light grey metal that is malleable and ductile at room temperature. Like Europium (Eu) and Terbium (Tb), lanthanum is present in the composition of fluorescent anti-fraud or counterfeit markings. Lanthanum offers its properties and characteristics to a wide range of fields, from the automotive industry to the medical sector.
