Product Description
AMETEK's Nickel-Iron-Cobalt strip, SEALVAR®, is a high quality alloy used primarily for making hermetic seals with harder glasses and ceramics. SEALVAR® is distinguished from competitive F-15 alloy by its higher purity, more closely controlled chemistry, and very low carbon level.

Advantages
Reproducible Low Level Of Reactive Impurity Elements
  • Improved die wear.
  • Improved soldering.
  • Improved bonding (cladding).
  • Predictable oxidation: Rate; Adherence; Uniformity.
  • Predictable response to other chemical surface treatment steps.
  • Lower work hardening rate.
  • Improved metal flow in coining operations.
  • Reduced stress on glass or ceramic.
