(Precious) Metals for corrosion-proof Processing of Components and Modules
The key properties of FiberOptic non-ferrous metal components are heat resistance and extreme robustness. With our decades of experience in metal processing, we can ensure that the optimum combination of materials is used. To produce the best results, we also utilise combinations of other metals, plastics and ceramics.
At FiberOptic, our product planning and processing stages always focus on our customers’ requirements and wishes. As a result, we create high performance modules and single parts of the highest quality.
Titan (e.g. grade 5)
In air, titanium forms an extremely resistant oxide coating that protects it against many materials. A transition metal, titanium is extremely strong with a relatively low density. It is therefore ideal for applications that demand high corrosion resistance, strength and low weight. These properties remain stable up to 400°C, above which its strength properties drop sharply. Excellent resistance to saltwater and various corrosive materials up to 300°C. Titanium is used in medical engineering, industrial clock and watch making, aviation and aerospace, marine engineering, gas turbines, racing sports and general mechanics.
FiberOptic uses the precious metal gold for a wide range of applications and production stages. In this process we always focus on the optimum combination of the gold we use with other metals.
Platin oder Platin-Rhodium 80/20
Platinum and platinum-rhodium are extremely corrosion and oxidation resistant precious metals, even at elevated temperatures (platinum up to 1000°C and platinum-rhodium 80/20 up to 1200°C). They are used primarily in medical engineering, thermocouples, turbines and in the automotive sector. The special properties of platinum make it the ideal choice for laboratory equipment.
