Molybdenum, a refractory metal known for its excellent mechanical and thermal properties, has gained significant attention in various industries. One of the versatile forms in which molybdenum is utilised is as a foil. In this article, we will delve into the properties, manufacturing process, and diverse applications of molybdenum foil provided by Advent Research Materials.
Nickel is a chemical element with the symbol Ni and atomic number 28. It is a silvery-white, lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge. Nickel is a ductile and malleable metal, making it easy to shape and form into various products. It is also resistant to corrosion and oxidation, making it a popular material for many industrial applications.
Silver is a chemical element with the symbol Ag A relatively soft, white, lustrous transition metal, it exhibits the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and reflectivity of any metal.
The chemical element platinum is one of the most commonly known – not just in the world of science, but in the world of the consumer. This dense and ductile material has many properties that appeal to different audiences, whether it be cast into an engagement ring or used on the operating table.
Using 0.25mm Titanium wire supplied by Advent Research Materials, researchers in Thailand have developed an anti-reflective and anti-soiling coating for commercial solar modules that is claimed to increase power yield by over 6%.
Aluminium is the most abundant metal to be found in the earth's crust. It is extracted from bauxite, hydrated Aluminium oxide, and once in the elemental form aluminium has a silvery appearance. The number of applications that aluminium and its alloys can be used for is vast.
Due to Cadmium’s toxic nature, its uses are highly restricted, however, it remains a common component of a limited number of consumer items as well as having an important role in several commercial and research based applications.
