Laboratory Equipment Made of Platinum

Our company provides simple laboratory accessories, X-Ray Fluorescence analysis equipment, etc. with alloys of the platinum group metals (Platinum, Rhodium, Iridium and Palladium) or pure Platinum or alloy Platinum/Gold. The composition of the alloy needed is determined by the needs of the application: wetting behavior, melting point of the application, corrosion resistance, rupture strength etc.

All the characteristics of the alloys used can be enhanced using dispersion-hardened or fein grained materials, e.x. Zirconium Oxide.

These enhanced accessories are described by the terms: FKS-Platinum or FKS-Platinum alloys and have the following characteristics:

  • Structural stability during annealing
  • High rupture strength
  • Increase of the maximum Temperature of the application
    (20% higher Temperature can be applied using the FKS-Platinum alloys)
  • Increase in tensile strength and yield strength
  • Very high chemical resistance
  • Extended useful life

We provide accessories with the following FKS-Platinum /Platinum alloys:

  • FKS Pt : FKS Platinum
  • FKS Pt/Au 95/5: FKS Platinum/Gold 95/5
  • FKS Pt/Rh 90/10: FKS Platinum/Rhodium 90/10
