Rhenium metal is silvery white and extremely hard; it resists wear and corrosion very well and has one of the highest melting points of the elements. The melting point of rhenium, 3,180 °C, is exceeded only by those of tungsten and carbon.)
Rhenium sputtering targets are made by powder metallurgy technology, after forging and rolling process, the density is very close to theoretical density and very uniform grain size. End user can obtain constant erosion rates and high pure and homogeneous thin film coating during PVD process.
Application of Rhenium (Re) Sputtering Target
Rhenium is used as an additive to tungsten- and molybdenum-based alloys to give useful properties. These alloys are used for oven filaments and x-ray machines. It is also used as an electrical contact material as it resists wear and withstands arc corrosion.
