About Gadolinium Terbium Alloy

Gadolinium-terbium is one of numerous high purity rare earth alloys manufactured by American Elements. As a master alloy, gadolinium-terbium can be used for grain refining, hardening, and improving alloy performance by enhancing properties such as ductility and machinability. Available alloy forms include sheets and plates, discs, foils, rods, tubes, and other shapes. American Elements can produce gadolinium-terbium alloy in various standard ratios of Gd:Tb; custom alloy compositions are also available. Advanced chemical analysis is available for all alloy products by best demonstrated techniques including X-ray fluorescence (XRF), glow discharge mass spectrometry (GDMS), and inert gas fusion. We also manufacture gadolinium-terbium in other forms such as sputtering target and foil.
