Platinum, Gold and alloys from Platinum/Iridium and Palladium/Iridium
Metals and alloys show a wide field of applications in the medical market, ranging from surgical instruments to diagnostic marker bands and pace makers.
Stents and other implantable devices are made from fine metal wires. Catheter systems include thin-walled tubes made from Platinum. Electrical feedthroughs are necessary for pace makers, where platinum pins are brazed with gold braze alloy.
Depending on the specific application, metals like Rhenium, Tungsten or Ruthenium and special alloys are available.
