Niobium oxide is similar in properties to tantalum oxide. Used in capacitors and as an additive to optical lenses to adjust the refractive index, niobium oxide is also used in the manufacture of lithium niobate, a material used in optical waveguides and related applications.
Telex Metals provides niobium oxide in a carbide-grade powder at a highly competitive price.
In addition to the oxide, Telex also provides another niobium compound, niobium carbide (NbC). NbC is a very hard material with a melting point of near 3,500°C. It is used in hard metal applications such as cutting tools for machining metal.
