Platinum Labware - Maximum Performance in technical Applications 

Devices made of platinum are Standard equipment in many chemical analytical laboratories because of their special properties. We produce platinum crucibles, platinum dishes, electrodes and many other lab devices from standard alloys (PtAu, PtIr, PtRh, AuPd).

The application determines the combination of alloy metals. Wetting behavior, corrosion resistance, melting point and creep strength are adapted to the application parameters. Specially tailored solutions are possible at any time. For high temperature measurements (thermo elements) we have thermo wires made from platinum and platinum/rhodium in all standard Diameters and make the appropriate thimbles. For the fiber industry we manufacture spinnerets and bushings with the utmost precision.

Platinum Labware - Model Overview


Fine Grain Stabilized Marvel

Zirconium oxide additives harden platinum, they promote grain refinement and solidify the material to make it a high performance material that exhibits exceptional material saving characteristics:

  • Better mechanical and chemical resistance
  • Up to two fold increase in tensile strength and yield strength
  • Creep strength triples
  • Increase of the maximum operating temperature by up to 20 %

FKS platinum is used in glass industry, for lab devices, in measurement technology and for customized devices. We offer all devices, particularly for XRF analysis, not only in Standard platinum alloys but also in FKS platinum.

Information concerning the application recommendations is based on years of operational experience. Higher temperatures, aggressive media, platinum poisons, etc., can significantly affect the service life. The alloys listed are only an extract of the alloys produced by Ögussa. We are eager to answer questions and special requests.
