Leading vertically integrated and conflict-free provider of high performance tantalum metallurgical and powder products to the electronics, aerospace, automotive, chemical manufacturing and other industries.

Tantalum Metallurgical Products

Strength, Durability, Ductility, Corrosion Resistance, Thermal Conductivity, and High Melting Point make tantalum metallurgical products highly desirable in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and various aerospace, energy and ballistic applications.

With these characteristics Tantalum and its alloys possess a combination of properties that make them excellent materials for high temperature corrosion applications in inert atmospheres or vacuum.

Strength, Durability, and Ductility

  • The metals mechanical properties, including fatigue resistance, make tantalum equipment more robust than glass or graphite systems.
  • Thin-gauge tantalum strip can be readily deep-drawn to produce inert laboratory crucibles and cups.
  • High melting points allow Tantalum and its alloys to have excellent thermal and mechanical properties and ease of fabrication.

Corrosion Resistance

  • Tantalum products provide a longer service life than other corrosion-resistant metals, such as titanium, zirconium, or stainless steel.
  • Above 250°C, tantalum and its alloys are resistant to attack by atmospheric gases (air, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide).

Thermal Conductivity and High Melting Point

  • Tantalum is commonly used as hardware such as fasteners and fixtures that requires exceptional strength at high temperatures in environments such as heat shielding in jet engines and vacuum furnaces.
  • Other high temperature applications include susceptors, resistance heaters, trays, thermowells, thermocouple sheaths, structural parts, crucibles, heat shields, and containers for liquid metals and vapors.
  • Tantalum crucibles are used for high temperature reactions, fusion, thin-film deposition, distillation and the melting of special glasses.
