What it Is:
Tantalum/Niobium carbide makes great contributions toward improvements in oxidation resistance, hot-hardness and high temperature strength as well as resistance to crater wear in steel processing. Thanks to their thermal conductivity, they also increase resistance to thermal cracking, which can occur due to thermal shock effects during milling, for example.
Grades: 90:10, 80:20, 70:30, 60:40, 50:50
Appearance: Dark Grey Powder
It is twice as dense as steel and is highly ductile. It features both thermal and electrical conductivity. In addition, it is inert with respect to nearly all organic and anorganic compounds, so it is characterized by high degree of stability and resistance.
Increases the performance of hard metal cutting tools
Used to produce chip cutting ductile products
Great for the metalworking, automotive, and aerospace industries.
