The chemical element of atomic number 41. Chemical symbol Nb. Atomic weight 92.91. Previously called columbium. See also Columbium.
Known as columbium in the USA. A strong carbide forming alloying element in steel. Present in amounts up to 0.1% in high strength low alloy (microalloyed) structural steel and used in stabilised grades of austenitic stainless steel. Can also be used as a stabilising element in ultra low carbon (ULC) steels.
A white superconductive metal. Atomic Number 41 Chemical Symbol "Nb". Melting point 2468oC Chemically inert and thus suitable for piercing.
Rare grey metal used mainly in the manufacture of light, resistant alloys. Its principal ore is pyrochlore.
A non-reactive, hypo-allergenic metal especially suited to body piercing jewelry because it is inert and non-porous. It can also be made more attractive by being annealed to change its color without dyes or electroplating.
Niobium lowers transition temperature and raises the strength of low carbon steel. Niobium increases strength at elevated temperatures, results in finer grain size and forms stable carbides, lowering the hardenability of the steel.
A silvery, soft, ductile metallic element used in steel alloys.
This wonderful metal comes in beautiful colors that are perfect for jewelry. This metal is very hard and considered hypoallergenic. The finish is quite durable and wears like a fine pear of jeans.
a soft gray ductile metallic element used in alloys; occurs in niobite; formerly called columbium
An exotic alloy valued for its strength at extremely high temperatures and its ability to superconduct, or pass electricity with minimal resistance, at very low temperatures. It is used in aerospace applications, in superconducting magnets in MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) equipment, when alloyed with titanium, and in particle accelerators.
An elemental metal used to make colored body jewelry.
An elemental metal, very useful for body piercing jewellery as it is hypo-allergenic. Heavier than SSS and titanium.
A chemical element with atomic number 41. Niobium was discovered in 1801 by Charles Hatchett who named it columbium. In 1950, it was renamed niobium by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The name niobium was named after the mythological creature Niobe, daughter of Tantalus. Symbol: Nb. Synonym: columbium. Related to transition metals.
Also known as columbium. Niobium is a strong carbide forming element which is added to certain 18/8% chromium-nickel stainless steels as a stabilizer to prevent inter-granular corrosion arising from welding.
A silvery metal used in jewelry, steel alloys, and superconductivity research.
Niobium (IPA: ), or columbium (IPA: ) is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol Nb and atomic number 41. A rare, soft, gray, ductile transition metal, niobium is found in niobite and used in alloys. The most notable alloys are used to make special steels and strong welded joints.
