Buying and Selling Tantalum from Exotech
Tantalum is Exotech’s centerpiece. Most of Exotech’s physical and chemical processes were designed to upgrade the many different forms of scrap containing Tantalum (Ta). Our diverse equipment capabilities allow us to process almost all forms of scrap Tantalum. We are a fully licensed chemical and thermal facility with zero discharge.
Tantalum Purchased by Exotech
Exotech’s purchases of Ta and Ta Alloy scrap include solids, turnings, powders, grindings and residues. We have in house capability to physically and chemically process pure and alloy Tantalum scrap where it has been bonded, clad or contaminated by other metals.
Manufacturing companies send us their Ta byproducts from the electronics, superalloy, coating, chemical and medical industries.
Our specialties include buying Tantalum used sputter and evaporation targets, scrap stampings and skeletons, turnings, anodes, furnace scrap, off grade or contaminated Tantalum powders, sludges, and Ta containing residues.
Tantalum Supplied by Exotech
Exotech supplies Ta for the most critical applications to the superalloy, electronics, chemical and medical industries. Our products can be customized to meet size, shape, and purity requirements. Purities for the Tantalum solids and turnings that we sell, range from 99.9% – 99.99%.
The 99.99%+ purity Tantalum melt stock we supply is critical for the single crystal superalloy and alloy addition industries, and is approved at most of the major alloy melting facilities around the world. Exotech has a state of the art laboratory with complete in-house ICP and LECO instrumentation.
Synthetic Tantalum Concentrate
Exotech has developed a unique process to convert Ta bearing materials into a synthetic Tantalum concentrate. Refinery items used as feed for our process input include Tantalum residues, slags, sludges, off spec Tantalum powders and highly contaminated Tantalum turnings and solids.
Our uniform, free flowing, non-radioactive, and highly concentrated Synthetic Concentrate is widely accepted by Tantalum manufacturers around the world as a premium substitute for Tantalum ores and concentrates.
Exotech is an approved EICC/GeSI Conflict-Free Smelter (CFSI) and our systems are ISO 9001 certified.
