How Titanium is Used Today

0 Comment

Titanium is a hard, shiny and strong metal. It is as strong as steel but much less dense. It is therefore important as an alloying agent with many metals including molybdenum, aluminium and iron. Titanium metal connects well with bone, so it has found surgical applications such as in joint replacements and tooth implants. Titanium […]

What are the Cobalt Alloy Properties

0 Comment

Cobalt (Co) is a lustrous, silvery-blue, non-ferrous metal found in smaltite, cobaltite, and erythrite minerals. Cobalt alloys are metal alloys containing cobalt as the base material. They have excellent high strength and toughness, high temperature strength and resistance, and good corrosion resistance. Cobalt alloys made be categorized based on their key material advantages. These include […]

When Was Tungsten First Used in Light Bulbs

0 Comment

More than 350 years ago, porcelain makers in China incorporated a unique peach colour into their designs by means of a tungsten pigment that was not known in the West. Indeed it was not for another century that chemists in Europe became aware of it. In 1779, Peter Woulfe examined a mineral from Sweden and […]

NIOBIUM – A Material for Innovations with Great Future Potential

0 Comment

In actual fact, niobium, like all other metals, is gray. However, by applying a passifying oxide layer, we allow our metal to gleam in a beautiful array of colors. Niobium is ductile and occurs with tantalum in a natural ore. Like tantalum, niobium also features outstanding chemical and oxidation resistance. Niobium has a gleaming white […]

Why is Molybdenum a Good Conductor of Electricity

0 Comment

High tech metals are called refractory metals in scientific terms, with a high melting point of 3500 degrees C. Tungsten, molybdenum, tantalum and niobium are refractory metals. The characteristics of these materials are not only high melting point, but also difficult to mine and process. Special process beyond traditional metallurgical method is required. Stanford Advanced […]
