Rhenium

Rhenium

Rhenium coatings and freestanding structures enable parts to survive and outperform other materials in solid rocket motor applications at temperatures approaching 5756°F (3180°C).

Advantages

  • High melting point: 5756°F (3180°C)
  • No ductile-to-brittle transition temperature
  • Endothermic oxidation at high temperature
  • Resistance to water vapor
  • Zero erosion in solid propellant environments
  • Stable contact with carbon, molten alkali metals, oxides, and glasses
  • Ability to protect carbon, carbon/carbon, molybdenum, and tungsten alloys from oxidation, wear, and corrosion
  • Excellent wear resistance
