Tantalum carbide targets, Tantalum carbide tablets, Tantalum carbide pieces, and Tantalum carbide powder (100-325 mesh)
Tantalum carbide powder is an extremely hard refractory ceramic material. The hardness of tantalum carbide is only exceeded by diamond. Tantalum carbide powder is a heavy, brown powder usually processed by sintering, and an important cermet material. Tantalum carbide powder is sometimes used as a fine-crystalline additive to tungsten carbide alloys. Tantalum carbide has the distinction of being the stoichiometric binary compound with the highest known melting point, at 4150 K (3880°C).

Typical Applications for tantalum carbide powder
-Tantalum carbide powder is often added to tungsten carbide/cobalt (WC/Co) powder attrition to enhance the physical properties of the sintered structure.
-Tantalum carbide powder is also used as a coating for steel molds in the injection molding of aluminum alloys. While providing a hard, wear resistant surface, tantalum carbide powder also provides a low friction surface.
-Tantalum carbide powder is also used in the production of sharp instruments with extreme mechanical resistance and hardness.
-Tantalum carbide powder is also used in tool bits for cutting tools.
