Why are Refractory Metals Used in Nuclear Reactions?


Refractory metals are metallic elements of the periodic table with unique properties such as extremely high melting points. However, they can remain solid at room temperature. These characteristics make these materials ideal for research-based and critical nuclear reactions. What Are Refractory Metals? Refractory metals possess a melting point above 2,000° Celsius (3,632° F) and are […]
