Niobium Sheet And Plates
Niobium plates are grey in colour. These are soft and highly ductile plates made form Niobium. The strength and conductivity of Niobium plates is high. Niobium plates do not show much electro-positivity. In comparison to zirconium niobium is much more compact in structure. The chemical properties of Niobium are similar to that of Tantalum. At high-temperatures the Niobium plates are highly reactive to non-metals. Also, these plates react to fluorine at room temperature. Niobium is widely used for less demanding applications, owing to the high availability and low costing.
