Composite clad metal wire that can be formulated to improve the performance characteristics of precious metal solid wire at a small fraction the cost is available from Anomet Products. Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire can be formulated to accentuate specific performance characteristics such as strength, radiopacity and corrosion-, contact-, or temperature-resistance.  Featuring a precious metal which is metallurgically bonded to a core material such as copper, Kovar, nickel-iron, molybdenum, stainless steel, tantalum, and titanium, this composite clad wire is functionally equivalent to solid wire at one-tenth the cost.

Replacing solid platinum, silver, gold and gold alloy wires, Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire typically incorporates 2% or more cladding thickness and is more ductile and formable than filled or plated products, claims the firm. Offered in 0.002” to 0.125” O.D. sizes, typical applications include aero- space, electronics, and medical connectors, implantable devices, and sensors.
