Expert Reviews

Dr. Myron Rubenstein, Ph.D (Polytechnic University of Turin, Italy)

Tantalum Carbide Powder: We procured Tantalum Nanoparticles from Nanoshel and are the obtained nanoparticles are well synthesized as per the requirement. As These nanoparticles are suitable to cut a variety of materials such as gray cast iron, ductile nodular iron, austenitic stainless steel, nickel-base alloys, titanium alloys, aluminum, free-machining steels, plain carbon steels, alloy steels, and martensitic and ferrite stainless steels. So I used Tantalum and molybdenum carbide coatings for wear protection of steel moulds employed in injection cast molding of aluminum and aluminum alloys.

Dr. Huojin Chan,  (University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, Anhui, China)

Tantalum Carbide Powder: Tantalum carbide (TaC) has high hardness, high melting point, high chemical stability, good resistance to chemical attack and thermal shock, and excellent oxidation resistance and corrosion resistance,which makes it very attractive for anti-ablation applications. Due to these properties TaC is desirable for market applications such applications as boost rocket motor nozzles that require high thermal-shock resistance.

Dr. Ms. Yi Yen Shi,  (King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi,Bangkok, Thailand)

Tantalum Carbide Powder: On an industrial scale, tantalum carbide has primarily been produced by the carbothermal reduction of Ta2O5 with carbon due to the low cost of raw materials. So, In the commercial sector, TaC has potential application as a material used for cutting tools and wear parts. Tantalum carbide has wide application in biomedical, corrosion, aerospace and electro technology.

Dr. Bruce Perrault, Ph.D (Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), USA)

Tantalum Carbide Powder: TaC stands as a candidate material for next generation thermal heat protection, space aircrafts, automotive wear resistant liners, and propulsion-exposed components. Due to their optical, electronic and magnetic properties, tantalum carbides have been used for optical coatings, electrical contacts and diffusion barriers.

Dr. Hans Roelofs, Ph.D (National Technical University of Athens, Greece)

Tantalum Carbide Powder: Due to its desired properties such as corrosion and wear resistance, electronic, magnetic and catalytic characteristics, Tantalum carbide (TaC) has been proposed for use as wound filaments in the form of wires, it is prohibited due to the low strength of TaC wires. In the industrial world, it can be used in machining-tool materials to reduce the tendency of welding between steel chips and tool material.
