Vanadium metal is important in a number of areas. Its structural strength and neutron cross-section properties make it useful in nuclear applications. The metal is used for producing rust-resistant springs and steels used for making tools. About 80% of the vanadium now produced is used as ferrovanadium or as a steel additive. Vanadium foil is also used as a bonding agent in binding titanium to steel and is being developed for usage in storage batteries.
H. Cross Company can provide Vanadium in sheet and foil sizes to suit your particular needs. Please refer to our Typical Dimension and Tolerances page for general size ranges of products. If you do not see your required size list Contact Us by email or phone for further information or assistance.
