Rhenium is a silvery, heavy metal with high melting point. It has the third-highest melting point, only after carbon and tungsten.
Rhenium is often added to superalloys that are used to make jet engine parts. It is also used in platinum-rhenium catalysts for performing certain reactions to a type of hydrocarbon know as an olefin.
Rhenium compounds have a wide variety of oxidation states ranging from -1 to +7. It is most available commercially as salts of perrhenate, including sodium and ammonium perrhenates.
Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) now can provide various rhenium products including:
Pure Rhenium Metal:
Shapes: powder, wire, pellet, sheet, foil, plate, rod, etc.
Rhenium Tungsten Alloy: wire, rod, foil, board, etc.
Rhenium Molybdenum Alloy: wire, rod, tubing, board, etc.
Rhenium oxide; ammonium perrhenate; methyltrioxorhenium (VII)

Rhenium is one of the rarest elements in the Earth's crust and the last stable element discovered. The free element has the third-highest melting point and highest boiling point of any element. The largest use of Rhenium is for jet engine and chemical industry's catalytic uses being next-most important.
Stanford Advanced Material could supply Rhenium powder with 99.9~99.999% purity and -100 or -200 mesh particle size. Typical quantity range from 10g~10kg. Rhenium powder is an important additive for tungsten alloy and nickel based super alloy.

We provide our customers with high purity Rhenium Oxides series, including rhenium(VII) oxide, rhenium(IV) oxide and rhenium trioxide. The largest user for Rhenium oxide is chemical industry's catalytic uses.
Rhenium Plate used to make high temperature heating parts need to work under particular conditions, e.g. semiconductor industry. Compared with other materials, pure rhenium heaters have the outstanding properties of better electric performance. Rhenium sputter target can be used to make rhenium thin film to be applied to high technology field.
Ammonium perrhenate(APR) was discovered soon after rhenium. APR could be produced from almost all normal sources of Re and it is the most common form in which Re is traded. NH4ReO3 is white and crystal-like salt, with good water solubility. Ammounium Perrhenate is often used to produce high purity Rhenium powder.
Methyltrioxorhenium(VII) is called Methylrhenium trioxide(VII) or MTO. This Re compound is an organometallic compound with the formula CH3ReO3. MTO is a colourless solid that has been used as a catalyst in some chemical laboratories.
Rhenium Wire is used to manufacture filaments for mass spectrometers and ion gauges as well as medical applications. Rhenium has the third-highest melting point and highest boiling point of any element. The major use of Rhenium is for jet engine and chemical industry's catalytic uses being next-most important.
The free Re element has the third-highest melting point and highest boiling point of any element. Rhenium is usually used in the field of super high temperature materials, and as metal additive in super alloy to make the part of aerospace, aviation and military equipments such as aeroplane engine and so on.
As a Rhenium supplier, Stanford Advanced Materials provides our customers with Molybdenum-rhenium products including wire, plate, rod tubes and custom machined parts. Typical rhenium concentrations of our Mo/Re products are 41%, 44.5% and 47.5%, so called 50/50 Moly Rhenium alloy.
