Tantalum Aluminum Alloys (TaxAly)

Extremely reliable resistor material for cyclic heating of ink.

Material Requirements:
A reliable resistor material capable of meeting the rigorous specifications set forth by the OEM of ink jet printer heads. Tantalum aluminum (TaxAly) alloys have been shown to be reliable resistor material. The (TaxAly) alloy is deposited as a thin film layer using a sputtering process. The deposited film must show low Rs uniformity. Praxair MRC has the capability to make TaxAly various compositions.
