High-Temperature, Corrosion-Resistant, Refractory Metal Tantalum
from Leading Edge Metals & Alloys, Inc.

Like niobium, tantalum is a heat-tolerant refractory metal with excellent corrosion resistance. Often alloyed with other metals, tantalum is used to make super alloys used in chemical processing, jet engines and nuclear reactors. Its oxidation properties also make it an excellent choice for many... [See More]

Tantalum Foil/Coil
from Ed Fagan, Inc.

Tantalum is famous for its resistance to corrosion by acids; in fact, below 150 ˚C, tantalum is almost completely immune to corrosion by aqua regia. Due to its resistance to attack by body fluids, tantalum provides an excellent material for medical devices. Another major use of Tantalum is for... [See More]
