Applications

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.
