Anomet Clad Metal Wire is metallurgically bonded with up to three layers to combine properties such as high conductivity with corrosion resistance or high strength with corrosion resistance and light weight. Suitable for use in high-reliability fuel cells and batteries, a typical application includes titanium-clad-copper for corrosion resistance and high conductivity.

Ideal for fabricating connectors, micro-switches, and bus bars, Anomet Clad Metal Wire can include platinum, gold, palladium, or silver clad to copper, stainless steel, Kovar®, niobium, nickel-iron, molybdenum, tantalum, and titanium core materials. Offered as wire and rod from 0.002 to 0.125 inches on diameter and as ribbon to 1 inch wide, they can have 2 percent or more cladding thickness.

Anomet Clad Metal Wire Products are typically 10 times less expensive than solid precious metal products.
