What Happens if Rhenium Is Alloyed to Niobium, Tungsten, and Tantalum?

0 Comment

Rhenium is added to high-temperature superalloys that are used to make jet engine parts, using 70% of the worldwide rhenium production. Another major application is in platinum–rhenium catalysts, which are primarily used in making lead-free, high-octane gasoline. Nickel-based superalloys have improved creep resistance with the addition of rhenium. Alloys normally contain 3% or 6% rhenium. […]
