Precious Metal Clad Products
Company’s 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, the products are available as wire and rod in sizes from 0.002 to 0.125 in. O.D. and as ribbon up to 1.0 in. W, with 2% or more cladding thickness, depending upon the desired properties.
