Tantalum is the most corrosion resistant metal in common use today. It is inert to practically all organic and inorganic compounds. This reactive metal is inert to Sulfuric and Hydrochloric acid below 150°C. It has good thermal conductivity, is erosion resistant, and forms easily.
Tantalum’s high workability and weldability make it a perfect material of construction for a wide range of equipment such as pressure vessels, columns or reactors.
