Niobium Tube

Niobium Tube



Brief introduction of niobium tube:
Niobium is a steel gray metal. Niobium and tantalum have approximate nature. Niobium is mainly used in metallurgy industry, atomic energy and aerospace industry, petroleum chemical industry, electronic industry and other departments. More than 80% of niobium is used in the production of steel. The
