Tantalum components and hardware are often found in the hot zone of industrial vacuum furnaces. Because of the unique properties of the metal, it can survive temperatures where most other material would fail. However, the longer the material is exposed to high temperatures, the more likely the tantalum will suffer from grain growth and eventually failure.
For this reason Admat offer a high temperature grain stabilized formula which significantly increases the life expectancy of the metal. We can offer this product in the form of bars, rods, plates, sheets, strips, fabricated parts, and even the whole hot zone assembly. For applications that require additional material strength, we recommend using our rigidized sheets.
Furthermore Admat is capable of supplying fabricated parts such as formed heat shield, heating elements, threaded rods and crucibles to name a few. Send us your drawings for a quote today.
