4 Types of Rhenium Alloys You Mightn’t Know Rhenium is a silvery-white rare high melting point metal that is hard, wear-resistant, and corrosion-resistant. Rhenium is stable in air, insoluble in hydrochloric acid, and does not interact with hydrogen and nitrogen. Because of the high price of rhenium, the application of rhenium-containing alloys is mostly used. In this article, […]

What Are the Uses of Rhenium?

0 Comment

What Are the Uses of Rhenium? Rhenium is a rare refractory metal that not only has good plasticity, and mechanical properties but also has good wear and corrosion resistance. Rhenium can be processed into rhenium plates, rhenium rods, rhenium sheets, as well as rhenium wires. In this article, let’s take a deeper look at the […]

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. […]
