Rhenium Uses in Aerospace – Shining Pearl of Aerospace Industry
Rhenium Uses in Aerospace Rhenium has been discovered for almost a century, but it is still an unfamiliar element to most of us. It ranks 75th on the periodic table of the chemical elements and is the most recently discovered natural element. In this article, we’ll take a look at the rhenium uses in aerospace. […]
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. […]
