Sintered, grain stabilized tantalum is doped with silicon which prevents grain growth even at high temperatures. This makes this tantalum suitable for use at even the highest operating temperatures. The fine-grained microstructure remains stable even after being annealed at temperatures of up to approximately 2000 °C. This process ensures that the material's excellent mechanical properties such as its ductility and strength remain intact.
