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
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
Strength, Durability, and Ductility
- The metals mechanical properties, including fatigue resistance,
make tantalum equipment more robust than glass or graphite
- 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
- Tantalum products provide a longer service life than other
corrosion-resistant metals, such as titanium, zirconium, or
- 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
- 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
