This center was established in 1999, and owns more than 340 researchers. According to the actual situation of the supporting unit, this center mainly conducts scientific research and technological innovation on metal tantalum, niobium, beryllium and alloy metallurgy, processing and relevant electronic material, super-fine powder material, metallic and oxide target material, tantalum, niobium capacitance and related material, etc., and serves the technological innovation and technological progress of enterprise.
National Tantalum Niobium Special Metal Material Engineering Technology Research Center
On the basis of CNMC Ningxia Orient Group Co. Ltd., the engineering technology research center has passed the on-site acceptance organized by Ministry of Science and Technology in 2008 since the establishment in 2004
Product & Application
Tantalum is a rare metal with high melting point, good cold working performance, high corrosion resistance and chemical stability. Tantalum has moderate hardness, ductility and low coefficient of thermal expansion. It is mainly used in tantalum capacitors and cemented carbide processing. It is an important basic material in modern communication, atomic energy, aerospace, medical and health fields.
Our tantalum products mainly include tantalum powder, tantalum wire, tantalum products (tantalum tape, crucible, etc.), tantalum target materials, etc.
Niobium is a rare metal, mainly exists in niobium iron ore and coexists with tantalum. It has good superconductivity, high melting point, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. It is widely used in iron and steel, ceramics, nuclear energy, superconductor and other fields.
Our Niobium products mainly include niobium wire, niobium strip, niobium tube, niobium powder and niobium zirconium ingot, etc.
OTIC has taken leading position in technology development and production scale through its continual accumulation and development during the past more than half century. OTIC is also one of the executive members of the Tantalum-Niobium International Study Center (TIC), We have been doing our best in providing complete series of high-quality Ta & Nb products and excellent services to all worldwide famous electronic consumers to meet the final-end consumers’ various and changing requirements through our continuous creativity. As being a responsible public company, OTIC has never forgotten its initial faith, that is while providing satisfied products to all our consumers,we have never forgotten the social responsibility which we should take on. OTIC strictly complies with our national concerned laws , rules and international regulations.
Compliance & Tantalum Raw Materials Procurement
OTIC strongly condemns all activities in connection with the illegal or unlawful exploitation of mineral resources, no matter where such activities take place. We only purchase raw materials that are conflict-free and that meet the requirements of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas.
OTIC strictly has been obeying and completely complying with the . According the Guidance and requirements,To avoid the use of conflict minerals, which directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups and/or involve other serious human right abuse in the high-risk and conflict-effected regions, OTIC has established its own Responsible material supply chain policy.
OTIC has very strict supply chain management system, we have established a series complete supply chain management system through taking strict measures and performing procedures to ensure ” Conflict Minerals” from conflict-affected areas would never be purchased and used, ,to prevent any conflict minerals and unknown material from entering into OTIC supply chain and to prevent the extraction and trade of minerals from becoming a source of conflict, human rights abuses, and insecurity.
RMI Conformant Smelter
The Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (formerly the Conflict Free Smelter Program (CFSP)) was established to cultivate transparent mineral supply chains and sustainable corporate engagement in the mineral sector with a view to prevent the extraction and trade of minerals from becoming a source of conflict, human rights abuses, and insecurity.
Being as a responsible company in the world, OTIC has been actively supporting and participating RMAP(Responsible Materials Assurance Process) assessment, up to the year of 2019, OTIC has already accepted RMAP assessment by an independent third party entrusted by RMI for nine years consecutively.
