Anomet Precious Metal Clad Products are metallurgically bonded to a core material to meet specific high-reliability requirements for contact- and corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, or to simply reduce material cost. Fabricated by hot and cold drawing, these clad products have a smooth, consistent surface finish and the cladding can be produced thinner than filled- and thicker than plated wire or ribbon, and are more ductile and formable.
Functionally equivalent to solid products, Anomet Precious Metal Clad Products are available as wire and rod in sizes from 0.002” to 0.125” O.D. and as ribbon up to 1” W, with 2% or more cladding thickness, depending upon the desired properties. Precious metals can include platinum, palladium, gold or silver and related alloys on cores such as stainless steel, copper, Kovar®, niobium, nickel-iron, molybdenum, tantalum, and titanium.
Anomet Precious Metal Clad Products are typically 10 times less expensive than solid precious metal products. Samples and price quotations are provided on request.
