Nb-1Zr Wire / Nb-1Zr Rod

Nb-1Zr wire

Nb-1Zr Wire and Nb-1Zr Rod application

Nb-1Zr alloy is the most widely used Niobium Zirconium alloy. It is a kind of low strength Niobium alloy.
It has excellent processing and welding performance, is mainly used in aerospace equipment, nuclear reactors, new sodium lamp and other application fields.

Nb-1Zr rod

Nb-1Zr Wire is used to produce key metal components on high pressure sodium lamps.
