Niobium pipes are soft-grey and ductile products. Niobium pipes are grey in colour with high-strength and conductivity. Niobium is a transition element with less electro-positivity. It is also more compact, when compared to zirconium. Niobium pipes have similar chemical properties to that of tantalum. These Titanium pipes are highly reactive to non-metals at high-temperatures. These pipes also react to fluorine at room temperature. The availability of Niobium is high and the cost is low, making it usable for less demanding applications.
Niobium pipes become superconductors at cryogenic temp
