Photo by Venmark InternationalComposite clad metal wire that can be formulated to improve the performance characteristics of precious metal solid wire at a small fraction of the cost is available from Anomet Products, Inc. of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

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 0.05mm to 3.2mm O.D. sizes, typical applications include aero- space, electronics, and medical connectors, implantable devices, and sensors.

Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire and Ribbon are priced according to construction and quantity. Samples and price quotations are available upon request.
