Our Tantalum customers experience total cost solutions when they partner with Materion Advanced Materials Group and RESTARTTM.  Through this unique program, Tantalum is recycled through our novel technologies to ensure a controlled high quality supply for the future. This is critical because the market often suffers from lack of available materials and inconsistent quality.


When we receive spent sputtering targets, whether Tantalum or other non-precious metal, they are subject to the following recycling process:

  • Melting
  • Chemical analysis
  • Refining to 99.99% purity
  • Processing into high quality targets 

This produces a reliable source of Tantalum targets for our customers.


Materion has over 100 years of experience in refining, recycling and recovery.  We are an industry leader in providing high performance sputtering targets in a wide variety of forms and purity to fit your needs. The combination of purchasing Materion’s high quality targets and partnering in our RESTARTTM program offers these benefits:  

  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Constant metal supply
  • Consistent high quality targets
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Preservation of valuable material resources
  • Conflict Free metal source
