The Role of Niobium in Superalloys Refractory elements are important alloying additions in both nickel-base and iron-nickel-base superalloys. They are responsible for the increased high-temperature mechanical properties present in current superalloy systems. In this article, we’ll take a look at the role of niobium in superalloys. It has long been established that nickel-base and iron-nickel-base […]
Which Elements Have the Highest Melting Point? As we all know, the melting point is the temperature at which substance converts from solid-state to liquid state. Some of the metals show very high melting points at least 2,000 degrees Celsius, and they also have very high physical strength. These metals are named as refractory metals. […]

How Titanium Is Used Today? In today’s article, we’ll take a look at how titanium is used today. 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 […]
What Is Rhenium Metal Powder Used to Make? Only tungsten and carbon have higher melting points. Rhenium has good wear resistance and it can withstand arc corrosion. It is soluble in nitric and sulphuric acids. Applications for the metal include its use as an alloying element with tungsten. The rhenium powder is a light-gray metal […]
Niobium – A Material for Innovations with Great Future Potential In this article, we will introduce niobium, a material for innovations with great future potential. 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 […]
Why Is Molybdenum a Good Conductor of Electricity? 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. A special […]
