Tantalum finds its largest use in the electronics industry, where it is used in filaments, filament supports, and capacitors. Metallurgical grade tantalum is used extensively in chemical process equipment. Tantalum resists corrosion by body fluids and is used in prosthetic devices. Its high melting point gives it utility in vacuum furnace components. It is also used as an alloying element in superalloys. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, and tensile properties. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as forming, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Ta-11. Producer or source: Cabot Corporation.
