Descriptions of ALLOY 52Molybdenum-Lanthanum-Wire

Glass sealing Alloy 52 is a controlled expansion alloy made of 51 percent Nickel and balance Iron exhibits low thermal expansion properties. Due to a higher content of Nickel than its other Nickel Iron family members, it also exhibits good magnetic properties. It’s commonly used in the Semiconductor and Telecommunications industry it also has a variety of other electronic applications.

With the addition of Iron, Alloy 52 is more durable than Nickel by itself and exhibits good machining properties.
