Niobium is used as an additive in nickel-, iron- or cobalt-based superalloys. It not only has a high melting point of 2477°C, but is also resistant to corrosion and oxidation.
For this reason, our nickel niobium is a preferred component in superalloys used for parts that must withstand high temperatures. Moreover, nickel niobium compensates for high tension stresses as well as shocks caused by vibration and impact.
The nickel niobium produced by TANIOBIS has a niobium content of 58%-65% and is offered as a superalloy additive.
