Ferrosilicon and Silicon Technology

In the liquid state, silicon has metallic properties regarding thermal and electrical conductivity, but in the solid state, it is a semiconductor and is called a metalloid. Due to its visual similarities in color and reflectance, it is often, misleadingly, referred to as a metal. Also when it comes to the production process, silicon may be produced in equipment used for metals production, such as manganese alloys and chromium alloys, and thus it is grouped with these alloys.
