As one of the primary feedstock forms for metal processing industries, bars and rods from H.C. Starck Solutions are used wherever high purity and workability are critical.
We produce bars and rods from a range of refractory metals and alloys, offering corrosion resistance, superior mechanical strength, and heat resistance for the most demanding use cases.
Materials & Specifications
H.C. Starck Solutions niobium and niobium alloy rod is hot and cold worked from ingots. Forging, rolling, swaging, and drawing are used to produce diameters as small as ¼”.
We offer a range of niobium materials in rod and bar form, including NRC® niobium metal and Grain Stabilized Niobium (GSNb), a single-phase micro-alloy for applications that demand consistently finer grain sizes, and C103 an aerospace alloy typically used in rocket engine applications.
Our arc-melting and powder metallurgy processes deliver bars and rods in a variety of molybdenum formulations; from 99.97% pure molybdenum (from 1/8in to 4in diameter) to alloys including Mo30W (1/8in to 3 ¼in), TZM (1/8in to 3 ½in (90mm), MHC (¼into 3 ½in) and many others.
H.C. Starck Solutions has developed proprietary techniques to overcome tantalum’s extremely high galling tendencies.
Our tantalum rod is generally supplied with a forged surface above in diameter, and a swaged or drawn finish in smaller diameters.
ULTRA76 tantalum alloys offer enhanced corrosion resistance for the most demanding applications. All our tantalum is EICC certified and comes from non-conflict sources.
We have been manufacturing tungsten products for over 100 years and provide a range of tungsten heavy alloy bars and rods for engineering, aerospace, and medical technology applications.
