About Tantalum Marker Bands

American Elements precision manufactures Tantalum Marker Bands cut to customer specifications from thin-walled seamless tantalum tubes in a variety of lengths and diameters. Marker bands are used in the medical industry to provide radiopaque marking for catheter tubes and sensors during angioplasty and other procedures. Typical dimensions for marker bands include diameters from 0.2-8.0 mm, wall thicknesses of 0.015-0.5mm, and lengths ranging from 0.2mm up to 25 mm. American Elements can produce most materials in high purity and ultra high purity (up to 99.99999%) forms and follows applicable ASTM testing standards; a range of grades are available including Mil Spec (military grade), ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade, Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade, Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia). Typical and custom packaging is available, as is additional research, technical and safety (MSDS) data.

Tantalum Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of tantalum's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 11, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d3 6s2. The tantalum atom has a radius of 146 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 217 pm. High Purity (99.999%) Tantalum (Ta) MetalTantalum was first discovered by Anders G. Ekeberg in 1802 in Uppsala, Sweden however, it was not until 1844 when Heinrich Rose first recognized it as a distinct element. In its elemental form, tantalum has a grayish blue appearance. Tantalum is found in the minerals tantalite, microlite, wodginite, euxenite, and polycrase. Due to the close relation of tantalum to niobium in the periodic table, Tantalum's name originates from the Greek word Tantalos meaning Father of Niobe in Greek mythology.
