Additional Information On Niobium

The largest consumer of niobium metal is in the production of specialty steels. This can be in the form of ferro niobium or niobium pentoxide. Added in small amounts, niobium increases the strength of steel. The second largest user of niobium is in the super alloy production of turbine or jet engine parts. Alloys like Inconel 718 use 5.5%Nb, which allows it to perform in extreme environments.
