Anomet Products' Precious Metal Clad Wire Is One-Tenth the Cost of Pure Precious Metal

SHREWSBURY, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Anomet Products, Inc., the leading producer of composite metal products, is custom manufacturing clad wire that features a true metallurgical bond and provides superior or equal performance to pure precious metal wire at about one-tenth the cost of pure precious metal.

Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire features precious metal metallurgically bonded to a core material with 2% or more cladding thickness offered in sizes from 0.002" to 0.125" O.D. as a cost-effective alternative to solid wire. Providing superior or equal performance to pure precious metal, this clad wire can include platinum for oxidation-, corrosion-resistance, and bio-compatibility, gold for contact resistance, and silver or palladium which can be clad to a variety of lower cost core materials.

Manufactured to precise OEM specifications and supplied on spools, Anomet Precious Metal Clad Wire can be clad to core materials such as copper, Kovar®, nickel-iron, molybdenum, stainless steel, tantalum, and titanium. They have a smooth surface finish and are more ductile and formable than filled or plated products.
