TANTALOY 60 Metal is a vacuum-melted, solid-solution alloy of tantalum and tungsten. It retains useful strength up to 4500 F. Its corrosion resistance is similar to unalloyed tantalum and it is only slightly more difficult to fabricate. If high-temperature exposure is under conditions other than vacuum or inert atmosphere, coating protection may be required. The alloy is used in highly specialized and sophisticated aerospace system applications and in special chemical process. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, and tensile properties. It also includes information on high temperature performance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Ta-9. Producer or source: Fansteel Metallurgical Corporation.
