Rhenium is a rare metal with unique properties that make it ideally suited for today’s most powerful engines and critical chemical reactions. Eagle Alloys is a premier rhenium metal supplier providing rhenium in both its pure form and most popular alloys. We supply this rare metal to a wide variety of industries and manufacturers, with many of our metals used in aerospace technology and petroleum refinery.

Rhenium has the highest boiling point of any element and the third-highest melting point. This intense resistance to heat gives rhenium strength and stability in high-temperature applications, and prevents it from warping while in use. For this reason, rhenium is commonly used in combination with nickel and the alloys are used to build jet engines. It is also used as an essential catalyst in the production of high-octane gasoline.

We supply pure rhenium, molybdenum rhenium and tungsten rhenium in bars, foil, sheets, plates and wire with various dimensions. For more information and to receive a quote, contact us today.
