tantalum

Tantalum is a ductile metal. Tantalum has excellent corrosion resistance to most chemicals except hydrofluoric acid. Tantalum has a melting point exceeded only by tungsten & rhenium. The melting point of tantalum is approximately 3017 degrees Celsius. Tantalum’s main end uses are in capacitors, vacuum furnaces, chemical process equipment, nuclear reactors and aircraft parts.

Eagle Alloys has a large inventory listed below. All custom sizes and finished parts can be produced quickly to the highest industry standards. Eagle Alloys can furnish bar, foil, sheet, plate, tubing and wire.

Tantalum Alloys – upon Request

  • TANTALUM – 10% TUNGSTEN
  • MEDICAL GRADE
  • TANTALUM – 2-1/2%TUNGSTEN

Combine tantalum corrosion resistance with tungsten’s high temperature strength. Available in most of the same sizes and shapes as pure tantalum.Tantalum is available in several types: Powder Metallurgical, E.D. Melted, and Arc-Cast. Advising us of your intended use will enable us to best match the correct type and annealed to your requirements. We make finished parts to print.

Eagle Alloys is a high-quality tantalum metal alloy supplier, serving many modern industries and providing a versatile range of types, dimensions, quantities, pure forms and alloys. Tantalum is a relatively rare and highly sought-after metal for its applicability to the modern technology industry. Capacitors powering vastly popular devices such as mobile phones, computers, video game systems and many more all may contain tantalum.

Tantalum is highly resistant to corrosion and high temperatures, and it is chemically non-toxic and inert. It is also highly ductile and can be easily formed into flexible wire filaments. These combined properties make tantalum a desirable element in a pure form as well as an alloy. Surgical instruments and implants may use tantalum for its gentle effect on the body and resistance to deformation and corrosion. The most popular use of tantalum, however, is in the capacitors found in computer chips.

We supply pure tantalum, medical grade tantalum and tungsten-tantalum alloys in a variety of forms, including powder, metallurgical, E.D. melted and arc-cast. Contact us to receive a quote and get started with your order.
