Tantalum (Ta) is selected for its corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, high melting point and ability to form a dielectric oxide film and immune to chemical attack at temperature below 150 C.
Tantalum finds use in four areas: high-temperature applications, such as aircraft engines; electrical devices, such as capacitors; surgical impants and handling corrosive chemicals. It is rarely used as an alloying agent because it tends to make metals brittle. Tantalum resist corrosion and is almost impervious to chemical attack, for this reason it has been employed in chemical industry, e.g. for heat exchanger in boilers where strong acids are vaporized
