Tantalum Oxide (Ta205)

Tantalum oxide, also known as tantalum pentoxide (Ta2O5), is a white solid material with properties suitable for a wide variety of applications. It’s:

  • Used in optics to adjust the refractive index and color behavior of lenses.
  • Formed into sputtering targets to apply non-reflective coatings to lenses via physical vapor deposition (PVD).
  • Integral to the production of lithium tantalate, which is used to make surface acoustic wave filters to improve acoustic performance in mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.

In addition to tantalum oxide, Telex Metals also sells tantalum carbide (TaC). TaC is a very hard material with a melting point close to 3,000°C. It is used in hard metal applications such as cutting tools for machining metal.

Telex Metals supplies high-purity tantalum oxide and various grades of tantalum carbide, both at very competitive prices.
