Hafnium is a shiny silvery metal that resists corrosion. Its alloys are used to make control rods for nuclear reactors because it will absorb neutrons and has a very high melting point. Hafnium has a good thermal absorption cross-section for neutrons, so is used in control rods in nuclear reactors. It has been successfully alloyed with several metals including iron, titanium and niobium. It is also used in gas-filled and incandescent lights.
