Future Rhenium Co., Ltd
Address：Zone A, Building 2, No. 581, Heilongjiang Road, Tianyuan District, Zhuzhou City, Hunan Province
Additive to tungsten and molybdenum-based alloys to increase ductility at higher temperatures;
Filaments for mass spectrographs and ion gauges;
Rhenium-molybdenum alloys become super-conducting at 10K;
Electrical contact material, as it has good wear resistance and withstands arc corrosion;
Thermocouples made of Re-W are used for measuring temperatures up to 2200° C;
Rhenium wire is used in flash lamps for photography.
Rhenium can also be used in medical applications. While it is non-radioactive by nature it can be made radioactive by neutron bombardment. Radioactive rhenium is used in prevention and treatment of restenosis, which develops following balloon angioplasty. Rhenium can also be highly effective in the treatment of liver tumors.
