Hafnium is a malleable, silvery gleaming metal. Its melting and boiling temperatures are very high, at very low temperatures hafnium is superconducting. Hafnium is a relatively base metal that, in colloidal form, is highly responsive and strongly resembles zirconium. When the metal comes into contact with air, a thin oxide layer forms, making it corrosion-resistant.
Hafnium is used as a control material in nuclear reactors and plays a role in laser technology. Without hafnium, computer chips would be significantly slower. 50 percent of the total hafnium production alone is used for super alloys in turbines and aircraft technology. For many of these applications, a low proportion of zirconium is important. However, there are no independent hafnium deposits, because hafnium always appears as a companion of zirconium with a share of about 1:50. This makes the extraction of hafnium very difficult and extremely expensive.
The rapidly growing semiconductor technology is creating an increasing demand for hafnium. Ideal for investors.
Due to the new, rapidly developing semiconductor technology, demand is expected to increase steadily in the coming years. The significantly increasing need for hafnium for aircraft turbines is also contributing to this development. This can lead to a significant increase in value for investors who physically invest in hafnium in the long term. Hafnium is therefore one of the most exciting technology metals for private investors.
