Category: iridium alloy

The iridium alloy is an alloy containing other components of iridium. Most of the iridium alloy is brittle and difficult to process, which limits its application. Adding a small amount of aluminum, iron, thorium, etc. can improve its impact toughness.

The iridium alloy made from this method has the high melting point and high-temperature strength and good thermal shock resistance, which is also compatible with graphite and plutonium dioxide (PuO2) at high temperature and selected as the fuel container material for aerospace and medical thermoelectric devices.

The iridium alloy is an alloy containing other components of iridium. Most of the iridium alloy is brittle and difficult to process, which limits its application. People use a small amount of tungsten or hafnium to improve the processing properties of iridium in production. Adding a small amount of aluminum, iron, thorium, etc. can improve […]
