Polymer Tantalum Capacitors with Suppressed Sensitivity to ...

Tantalum polymer capacitors, in comparison with classical tantalum capacitors with manganese dioxide cathode, have specific features. One of that is transient current that is connected to excessive drying of polymeric cathode and consequent anomalies during charging, but also, under some temperatures, increases DC leakage currents over long periods after …

powder particles and tantalum wire will reach between 1400-1700degC. Most general tantalum powder impurities (resulting from powder processes such as iron, nickel etc) will burn at such temperatures since their melting point is much lower. Hence sintering during manufacturing provides a very efficient cleaning function.
