Super Invar 32-5 is a low expansion alloy consisting of 32% Nickel, 5% Cobalt, and balance Iron. Super Invar Alloy exhibits minimum thermal expansion at room temperatures (one half of Invar Alloy), as well as thermal expansion properties less than that of Invar Alloy in the 67/203°F (-55/95°C) temperature range.
The minimal expansion of Super Invar over this range of temperatures, makes this alloy useful in many applications including structural components and substrates in instrument systems requiring precision measurements.
