Highly refractory elements Refractory metallic element is a grade of metallic element that is extraordinarily resistant to heat and any kind of wear. The expression refractory metals are mostly used in the context of use of materials science, metallurgy and engineering. There have been a lot of different definitions for elements that to this group which elements the most common definition includes five elements namely Tantalum, Tungsten, Nobidium, molybdenum and Rhenium. They all share some properties, including a melting point above 2000 °C and extremely high hardness at room temperature; these elements are chemically passive and have a relatively high density, their high melting peak shuffle powder metallurgy the method of pick for fabricating components from these metals. Some of their applications include tools to work metals at high temperature namely, wire filaments, casting molds, and chemical reaction pipes in corrosive environment Partly due to the high melting point, refractory metals are stable against creep deformation to very high temperatures .(Buaccio, 1993) Refract...
