Parameters of Pure Tantalum

Grades of Pure Tantalum

  1. R05200, unalloyed tantalum, electron-beam furnace or vacuum-arc melt, or both
  2. R05400, unalloyed tantalum, powder-metallurgy consolidation.

Melted tantalum is usually more economical to produce than sintered tantalum and provides sufficient quality for many applications. However, the material is neither as fine nor as homogeneous as R05400 tantalum. They both work excellently in different fields. 

Pure sintered quality tantalum and pure melted quality tantalum share the following properties:

  • The high melting point of 2996 °C
  • Good cold ductility
  • Recrystallization between 800 °C and 1200 °C (depending on the level of deformation and purity)
  • Outstanding resistance against aqueous solutions and metal melts
  • Superconductivity
  • High level of biocompatibility

FT Metals guarantee a purity of 99.95% for our sintered quality tantalum (metallic purity without Nb) with bother melted tantalum (R05200) & sintered tantalum (R05400). 

Our sintered tantalum is used for those tricky situations:

Due to our powder metallurgy production process, sintered tantalum is particularly fine-grained.

As a result, the material is very easy to work with and excels due to its excellent surface quality and robust mechanical properties.
