Niobium (Nb) is a silvery metal similar to tantalum. It has excellent mechanical properties at elevated temperatures and superconducting properties. Niobium is used in a wide variety of applications and is an important alloying element in superalloys and specific types of steel. It is used in superconducting magnets in scientific and medical equipment. When applied in a thin layer on optics and glass, it imparts both anti-reflective and scratch-resistant properties.
Telex Metals offers pure niobium in vacuum grade (99.8%+) for superalloy, CVD and other critical applications at a highly competitive price. Air-melt grade is also available.
In addition to selling metals, Telex can also provide toll conversion for your niobium-containing scrap or secondary raw materials. Our niobium recycle process can help reduce your raw material costs—and enhance your bottom line. When required, we also provide certified destruction services.
Niobium is one of several minor metals Telex sells at great prices. These include:
Since we obtain much of our stock through our scrap metal business and state-of-the-art recycling processes, we offer consistent availability and a better niobium price for you. And because our metals are ethically sourced, you can buy with confidence.
