Using Tantalum and Niobium in the Aerospace Industry.



Products made from tantalum by Fir metal are used in civil and military aerospace applications. They are a component in the super alloys in turbine blades, flame and heat shielding and other parts of jet engines. The outstanding high temperature properties of tantalum contribute to structural integrity and better fuel efficiency at high operating temperatures.

In addition, the use of tantalum capacitors is prevalent in electronic systems for aviation and aerospace, where high reliability in a range of environments is of paramount importance.
