    Hafnium (Hf) is a lustrous silver grey, a ductile, transition metal. Hafnium is found in most Zirconium minerals. It is not easy to separate these two elements due to their chemical resemblance. The Hafnium metal is further purified to crystal bars using the van Arkel/de Boer iodine process.  The crystal bars are then consolidated, electron beam (EB) melted and processed to wires, bars, plates, and other metal forms. Hafnium is traditionally used in high-temperature superalloys and nuclear control rods.  
    AEM provides pure hafnium products and hafnium alloy, hafnium fluoride with high quality and competitive prices.
    Below are some of our standard hafnium and hafnium alloy products. If you require customized products, please contact us by email.
