What Are the Special Applications of Iridium Alloy?

0 Comment

What Are the Special Applications of Iridium Alloy? The iridium alloy is an alloy containing other components of iridium. Most of them are brittle and difficult to process, which limits its application. People use a small amount of tungsten or hafnium to improve the processing properties of iridium in production. Adding a small amount of aluminum, […]

Why Is Zirconium A Transition Metal?

0 Comment

Why Is Zirconium A Transition Metal? When of sufficient purity, zirconium is soft and ductile. Zirconium a transition metal has good corrosion resistance and low absorption capacity for thermal neutrons. These properties are desirable in materials used for certain parts of nuclear reactors. The great increase in the production of zirconium since 1945 has been […]
