How Does Iridium Work in Modern Industries?

0 Comment

The high melting point, hardness and corrosion resistance of iridium and its alloys determine most of its applications. Iridium and especially iridium–platinum alloys or osmium–iridium alloys have low wear and are used, for example, for multi-ported spinnerets, through which a plastic polymer melt is extruded to form fibers, such as rayon. Osmium–iridium is used for […]
