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:
