    Tantalum Applications and Industries

    Tantalum, a remarkable metal known for its exceptional resistance to corrosion and ability to withstand extreme temperatures, is making waves across various industries. Whether you're in the electronics, aerospace, chemical, medical, or energy sector, our tantalum materials can meet your specific requirements. With our extensive experience in serving clients across North America and Europe, we understand the stringent demands of these markets.

    Tantalum's Role in Capacitor Manufacturing

    tantalum capacitors

    In the world, 50%-70% of tantalum is used in the form of capacitor-grade tantalum powder and tantalum wire for manufacturing tantalum capacitors. The surface of tantalum can form a dense, stable amorphous oxide film with high dielectric strength. This property facilitates the accurate and convenient control of the anodizing process for capacitor anodes.

    tantalum capacitors are characterized by high capacitance, low leakage current, low equivalent series resistance, excellent high and low-temperature performance, long service life, and superior overall performance, making them unparalleled by other types of capacitors.

    Tantalum in Aerospace and Defense

    Tantalum in Aerospace

    In aerospace and defense, tantalum is key. It withstands extreme temperatures and environments. AEM METAL provides tantalum that is crucial for aerospace components and defense applications. This ensures reliability in critical missions and operations.

    Tantalum high-temperature alloys can function normally at temperatures ranging from 800 to 1000°C. Consequently, tantalum serves as an essential material for high-temperature components in aerospace, such as turbine blades, guide vanes, and turbine disks in aircraft engines.


    Tantalum in Medical Industry

    Tantalum wires

    Tantalum are used in medical instruments due to their biocompatibility. Tantalum wires are used in surgery as sutures. They are easy to sterilize, cause less irritation, and are very strong. Tantalum metal can also be shaped into sheets of various sizes and forms, used for implants in different parts of the body. They are helpful in repairing and closing up broken skulls and fractures in limbs.

    Chemical Processing Equipment

    metal containers

    Tantalum resists corrosion well. It also withstands high temperatures. These features make it great for chemical and drug industries. It's used in making containers, pipes, and valves. It's also used in linings for heat exchangers. This metal is ideal for these uses. It lasts long and handles tough chemicals.


    Making Tantalum and Its Alloys

    Traditional casting has problems with hard-to-melt alloys like tantalum. The differences in melting temperature, mixing ability, and density of elements can cause issues. Parts made this way can have uneven mixing of elements and impurities. This means their quality can't be guaranteed.

    Tantalum and its alloys have high melting points. They also strongly react with elements like hydrogen, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen. Using traditional melting methods can create unwanted compounds in the tantalum. This makes the material worse. So, traditional casting isn't great for these tough metals.

    To deal with these issues, experts use other methods. These include powder metallurgy, vacuum electron beam melting, and additive manufacturing. They make high-quality tantalum and its alloys better.

    Powder Metallurgy

    This method is good for hard-to-melt metals like tantalum. It mixes tantalum powder with other metal powders. Then, it presses and heats them without fully melting. This keeps the temperature lower. After that, the metal is treated with heat and shaped to get the final product.

    Vacuum Electron Beam Melting

    This way makes tantalum and its alloys very pure. The final metal works better. But, it uses a lot of energy and is hard to control. It's also expensive, so it's not used as much.

    Additive Manufacturing

    This has been popular for 20 years, especially for high-end stuff. It uses special methods like lasers or electron beams to build metal parts. It's good for making strong, heat-resistant metals. This method is efficient and exact, but still costly.

    Your Comprehensive Guide to Purchasing Tantalum
