Iron, Electrolytic, occurs as an amorphous, lusterless, gray-black powder. It is elemental iron obtained by electrode deposition. It is stable in dry air.

Electrolytic iron is produced by electrolytic deposition of metal from an aqueous solution of a suitable iron electrolyte whereby metal is deposited onto a cathode and can be subsequently chipped off or stripped off the cathode and ground into fine powder.

The leading clients of iron powder include the following sectors:
Food industry – fortification is to fight iron deficiency and add strength to the common day foods as also cereals. The process involves adding iron and other minerals to the raw or processed or semi processed food to improve its nutritional value.
Nutrition related manufacturing – iron nutrition supplements make use of pure iron which is available as electrolytic iron powder.
Pharmaceuticals manufacture – pharmacy industry also hugely depends on electrolytic iron powder for making drugs and compounds of diversity.
Chemicals – industrial chemicals sector make use of the pure iron powder to develop the intermediates and final products.
Paints & dyes – paints and dyes industry depends on pure iron powder to make the color complexes and dyes.
Diamond cutting tools industry – diamond cutting tools are fast expanding in scope and functions and these increasingly use electrolytic iron powder to make the diamond blades, tool heads, and bits.
