TANTALUM - Driving innovation
Tantalum is one of the rarest elements on earth. This platinum-gray colored metal has a density of 16.6 g/cm3
which is twice as dense as steel. Also, it is highly ductile at high
temperatures, very hard and has excellent thermal and electrical
conductor properties. Its melting point of 2,996°C is the fourth highest
of all metals.
A metal with nearly endless potential
With its combination of special physical and chemical properties, tantalum is a key product in many applications:
