We work together with more than 10,000 clients from the mechanical engineering, tool manufacturing, mold manufacturing, cabinet construction, factory building and metal structures industries.
Tantalum is one of the metals of high melting point, is very resistant to acids (except hydrofluoric acid). It is very hard, elastic and well deformable. It's a weldable metal.
Industrial applications: Electrical and chemical engineering, in the construction of high temperature furnaces, in evaporation plants, in nuclear technology. Tantalum is added as an alloying constituent for rust and acid resistant steels. Tantalum carbide is also used for the production of carbide.
