Tungsten Wire

Tungsten is a steel-gray colored metal found in nature. The name tungsten comes from the Swedish language where "tung" means heavy and "sten" means rock.

Tungsten is mostly famous for its physical properties. It has the highest melting point of all metals and high strength at high temperatures.

Tungsten is often used for its good conductivity for heat and electricity as well as for its high absorption capacity for radioactive radiation and X-rays.

Examples of applications; Mesh, Fuses, Musical strings, Lightning, Automotive

Gold plated Tungsten

As for tungsten, also tungsten is sometime gold coated for reasons such as corrosion and soldering to other metals.

Standard gold coat thickness for wires < 50 microns is 3-5% by weight. For wire dimensions > 50 microns the coat thickness is 0,5 micron.

Upon request we also manufacture wire with non standard coat thickness.

Examples of applications; Printing, Antennas and Technical Research
