Silver clad copper wire replaces solid-silver, trims costs
Article Type: New products From: Microelectronics International, Volume 29, Issue 1
A high quality silver clad copper wire replacement for solid-silver wire in electronic switches and connectors requiring high conductivity and low contact resistance is being introduced by Anomet Products, Inc. of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA. Anomet silver clad copper wire is metallurgically bonded to an OFHC copper core with 99.99 percent pure silver cladding, or silver alloy, from 5 to 60 percent by weight or by volume. Providing electronics designers with a functionally equivalent alternative to solid-silver wire at a significantly lower cost, this clad wire has a smooth, consistent surface finish.
Formable and solderable, Anomet silver clad copper wire is available in sizes from 0.05 to 3.2 mm O.D. and as ribbon up to 25 mm wide, depending upon cladding thickness. The firm also produces a full range of other precious metal clad wire products incorporating various core materials.
