Hafnium is a hard, corrosion resistant metal that has similar properties to zirconium. Hafnium is nowhere produced for itself but only as a result of the purifying of zirconium for use in nuclear plant and equipment, where the lowest possible level of hafnium is required.
Advanced Refractory Metals is a leading supplier of hafnium products. We offer low pricing and great lead times on all our materials, and we’re capable of supplying custom materials per any specs/drawings you provide us with.
* Hafnium is remarkably corrosion-resistant and an excellent absorber of neutrons, allowing its use in nuclear submarines and nuclear reactor control rods, a critical technology used to maintain fission reactions. Control rods keep the fission chain reaction active but also prevent it from accelerating beyond control.
* Hafnium is used in electronic equipment such as cathodes and capacitors, as well as in ceramics, photography flashbulbs and light bulb filaments. It is used in vacuum tubes as a getter, a substance that combines with and removes trace gases from the tubes.
* Hafnium is commonly alloyed with other metals such as titanium, iron, niobium and tantalum. For example, heat-resistant hafnium-niobium alloys are used in aerospace applications, such as space rocket engines.
