What are the applications for niobium products

Niobium product is dominated by its use as additive to high strength low alloy steel and stainless steel for oil and gas pipelines, car and truck bodies, architectural requirements, tool steels, ships hulls, railroad tracks. However, there are many other applications for niobium metal and compounds.

Niobium product application & technical benefits
Niobium oxide
- Manufacture lithium niobate for surface acoustic wave filters
- Camera lenses
- Coating on glass for computer screens
- Ceramic capacitors
- High index of refraction
- High dielectric constant
- Increase light transmittance

Niobium carbide
-Cutting tool compositions
-High temperature deformation, controls grain growth

Niobium powder
-Niobium capacitors for electronic circuits
-High dielectric constant, stability of oxide dielectric

- Sputtering targets
- Cathode protection systems for large steel structures
- Chemical processing equipment
-Corrosion resistance, formation of oxide and nitride films. Increase in high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, improved creep resistance, reduced erosion at high temperatures.

Niobium-titanium alloy Niobium-tin alloy
Superconducting magnetic coils in magnetic resonance imagery (MRI), magnetoencephalography, magnetic levitation transport systems, particle physics experiments.
Electrical resistance of alloy wire drops to virtually zero at or below temperature of liquid helium (-268.8°C).

Niobium-1% zirconium alloy
- Sodium vapor lamps
- Chemical processing equipment
-Corrosion resistance, fixation of oxygen, resistance to embrittlement.
-Vacuum-grade ferro-niobium and nickel-niobium
-Superalloy additions for turbine blade applications in jet engines and land-based turbines.

Inconel family of alloys, superalloys.
Increase in high temperature resistance and corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, improved creep resistance, reduced erosion at high temperatures.
