Description

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.
