A respected global source for minor metals, Telex Metals provides niobium (Nb) and tantalum (Ta) to the superalloy industry. Each of these refractory metals plays an important role as a strengthening agent used to increase the high-temperature mechanical properties and performance of nickel-based superalloys.
These high-tech alloys find use in many different applications, due to their ability to retain most of their high strength at elevated temperatures as high as 650°C (1,200°F), while still exhibiting acceptable physical properties at low temperatures.
In the automotive field, the higher strength of the superalloys allows lighter weight parts to do the job of heavier parts made from conventional materials.
For aviation, superalloys make highly efficient jet engines possible, which withstand the elevated temperatures and extreme forces experienced by engine components.
Telex takes a comprehensive approach to metals processing and supply. Our staff of experienced metals industry professionals optimize the process, monitor for quality and ensure our delivery schedules meet your schedule.
In addition to the superalloy industry, Telex Metals also partners with manufacturers in the medical, hard metals and electronics industries, with the same integrity and commitment to superior performance.
