Description:

Kovar – precision magnetic alloy containing Nickel (Ni) (29 %), cobalt (Co) (17 %) and iron (Fe) (54 %). The alloy composition also includes carbon (C) (less than 0.01 %), silicon (Si) (0.2 %) and manganese (Mn) (0,3 %).

Kovar has a coefficient of thermal expansion matched with the coefficient of thermal expansion of borosilicate glass, and has a high adhesion to molten glass, and therefore is widely used for making electrical conclusions, passing through glassand cold end variety of lamps, devices, radioactive elements.

 


Properties:

– alloy plastic, well-rolled, drawn, stamped, welded, soldered,

– has a high adhesion to the molten glass,

the ferromagnetic alloy,

the Curie temperature is 420 °C,

– melting point 1450 °C,

– electrical resistivity of 0.5 MOhm·m,

– in a humid environment the alloy corrode requires protective anti-corrosion coatings (usually, for this purpose made of an alloy findings nicelybut),

– well laditsya alloy tin-lead solders,

– when soldering with the glass, forms a secure vacuum and a tight grip,

– 8 density 350 kg/m3,

– the modulus of elasticity of 1.96·1011 PA (N/m2),

– tensile strength of 0.65 GPA (65 kgf/mm2),

– the thermal conductivity of 19 W/(m·K),

– electrical resistivity of 0.15·10-6 Ohm·m,

– the coercive force of 74 vehicles

– the initial magnetic permeability of 0.78 mH/m,

– the maximum magnetic permeability of 6.36 mH/m,

– residual induction of the magnetic field 9 750·10-4 T,

– induction into the field 8E (В8э) 13250·10-4 T,

– coefficient of thermal expansion is (4,5 – 5,2)·10-6 1/°C in the interval 20 – 400 °C and ~ 10·10-6 1/K at 800 °C, close to the thermal expansion coefficient of the glass.
