Hafnium alloys: Part One :: Total Materia Article

Pure hafnium is a lustrous, silvery metal that is not so ductile nor so easily worked as zirconium; nevertheless, hafnium can be hot- and cold-rolled on the same equipment and with similar techniques as those used for zirconium. All zirconium chemicals and alloys may contain some hafnium, and hafnium metal usually contains about 2% zirconium.

Hafnium is a chemical element with the symbol Hf and atomic number 72. A lustrous, silvery gray, tetravalent transition metal, hafnium chemically resembles zirconium and is found in many zirconium minerals.Its existence was predicted by Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869, though it was not identified until 1923, by Coster and Hevesy, making it the last stable element to be discovered.
