Tantalum is an element with a very high melting point with excellent deep-drawing properties. In addition to its superior ability to be fabricated, its temperature from ductile to brittle is low. Tantalum’s most common use is in electrolytic capacitors. Another use is chemical process equipment such as heat exchangers and condensers. The aerospace and nuclear industries have found a variety of applications for the metal. Because it has good corrosion resistance and resistance to bodily fluids, it can be used for prosthetics and surgical devices.
When Al Menzies Sr. established Standard Die over 50 years ago, his plan was simple: stand out from the competition. As the first metal stamper to the industrial diamond industry, he was unwilling to compromise his values. He made sure integrity, customer service and quality were integrated into every aspect of the business and, as a result, designed and manufactured some of the world’s finest products for the industrial diamond industry.
