Tantalum (Ta, atomic number: 73) is a hard, silver-gray metal. Pure tantalum has an incredible resistance to corrosion, and is even able to resist the attack of acids which can dissolve gold and platinum. As well as being resistant to corrosion, pure tantalum is completely bioinert, making it the perfect choice for orthopaedic implants and surgical equipments which are usually machined from pure tantalum plates.
Tantalum Typical Applications:
• Charge carriers, capacitors.
• Electrodes and grounding rings.
• Heat exchanger tubes.
• Jet engine parts, missile parts and vacuum furnace parts.
• Surgical equipments.
