Rhenium has several unique properties as follows: High melting temperature Extreme resistance to chemical erosion Ability to maintain ductility after recrystallization High electrical resistivity over a wide temperature range Low vapor pressure Resistant to oxidation at very high temperature Good thermal shock resistance. 1. W-Re alloys Wire & Mo-Re alloy Wire: W-Re alloys are made of Tungsten alloyed with 3%, 5%, 25% or 26% Rhenium, which become more ductile and machineable. With good electrical properties, W-Re alloys are widely used as high temperature thermocouple materials. Mo-Re alloy is Molybdenum Alloyed with 41% or 47.5% of Rhenium (nominal content of Rhenium is 50%), which has good ductility, weld ability, formability, and strength. Mo-Re alloy keeps high ductile even after used in high temperature. Mo-Re alloys are widely used for electronics, nuclear, and space applications. 2. SMT can provide the sizes as follow table:
3. Main applications: 1) E-guns and E-tubes: Superior level of straightness and resistance uniform 2) Thermocouple wire: Can be used for measuring temperature up to 2, 200 degree 3) Probe needle: High rigidity 4) TCD filament
4. SMT's advantage in W-Re alloys Wire & Mo-Re alloy Wire: 1)Large size, high purity, high density, Smooth furnace, difficulty structure 2)Long history and rich experience of of supplying kinds of furnace components 3)Competitive price & professional service.
