Tantalum (Ta) is a rare grey metal with unique properties. It makes a significant contribution to modern medicine, allowing millions of people to live longer, healthier lives.
Tantalum are broadly used fall into two categories in medical field:
Because tantalum capacitors are exceptionally reliable, highly durable, and can be made to be very small indeed, they allow implantable medical devices to be small, yet powerful.
This is due to the fact that tantalum is coated with a very thin coating of natural tantalum oxide (Ta2O5), making it totally inert to body fluids. This characteristic that makes it an ideal material for surgical implants.
Quken can provide high purity fine tantalum wires, capacitor grade tantalum powder and precision tantalum machined products for customers.
