Tantalum is a very dense yet ductile metal that’s amenable to a variety of fabrication methods. It forms a stable protective layer of oxide on its surface, giving it a wide range of physical, mechanical and electrical properties. It is also biocompatible and completely corrosion resistant, making it suitable for a variety of uses.
