Kovar is a controlled expansion alloy with 29% Nickel, 17% Cobalt and the remaining balance is Iron. The expansion characteristics of Kovar match both borosilicate (or Pyrex) glasses and alumina ceramics, making it one of the most popular of the controlled expansion alloys for hermetic sealing applications. Kovar is used in applications such as power tubes, microwave tubes, transistors, diodes, hybrid packages, and other kinds of scientific instruments. If you require Kovar in another form, please call 800-348-6268, and one of or material experts can help you with your request.
