Tantalum ore suppliers find tantalum’s use in four areas: applications of high temperature like aircraft engines. Second, electrical equipment such as capacitors. Third surgical implants and lastly corrosive chemicals. Tantalum as a material is used rarely as an alloying agent. Tantalum is corrosion-resistant and is impervious against chemical attack, and for this very reason, it is widely used in chemical industries. For example, it is used in boilers for heat exchangers where strong acids get vaporized.
