Controlled Expansion Alloy Strip
Avocet are the UK agent for JLC Electromet, a producer and cold roller of nickel based alloys including controlled expansion alloys. These are iron-nickel alloys that exhibit low expansion at room temperature. They are used in many glass to metal and hermetic sealing applications. By modifying the nickel content, metallurgists have created a range of alloys that are tailored to suit the specific application. Understanding our customers’ requirements and what they demand from their raw materials is key to our success. JLC melt all their own alloys meaning all processes from melting to final draw is conducted in-house allowing for total control and exceptional quality.
