High electrical conductivity
The 10 % silver portion of the LEONI Histral® H65 alloy ensures very good electrical conductivity without relinquishing any of its excellent mechanical resilience. Hence, the material lends itself exceptionally well to strands consisting of very fine wires made into small cross-sections.
High mechanical strength
LEONI Histral® H65 is an alloy composed of copper at 90 % and silver at 10 %. Having been drawn down cold, this material preserves its outstanding mechanical properties coupled with good electrical qualities. Therefore, it is particularly suited for any environment characterized by significant mechanical stress.
High-frequency micro cables
LEONI Histral® H65 material lends itself exceptionally well to conductors with fairly small cross-sections. Wires as thin as 0.03 mm (AWG48) and strands up to 7 ends using single wire this thin (AWG 40) have already been produced successfully. It might be advisable to use silver-plated wire in coaxial cables.
Since LEONI Histral® H65 is extremely suitable for miniaturisation, it can be made good use of in medical technology. Cables employed in that field may be subjected to heavy tensile stress in the wake of conductors being yanked or bent. This calls for perfect precision, reliability and an extraordinary resilience, for the patients’ safety has to be considered as the top priority at all times.
