Tantalum is the 51st most abundant element in the earth crust, it is a shiny, silvery metal, which is soft when pure. It is hard, ductile, and can be easily fabricated.
APPLICATIONS IN METALLURGY
Tantalum’s main use is in capacitors for consumer electronics, where around 40-50% of the world’s tantalum is used. Other uses are sputtering targets, corrosion-resistant mill products including implants, superconductors, carbides for cutting tools, high end optic chemicals and due to its high melting point (2996°C) it is also frequently used as an addition in nickel-base super alloy castings for turbine blades in jet engines and industrial gas turbines (IGT).
