Wires and Rods

Built on a strong foundation of metallurgical expertise and put through a rigorous series of quality assurance protocols, XRF Scientific precious metal products are engineered to exceed expectations. All our unique semi-finished goods are derived from a single quality-assured source. Whether you are looking for gold, silver, or platinum rods, or need a specialist wiring solution based on transition metals, XRF Scientific can deliver.

XRF Scientific: High-Quality Rods and Wires

Committing to a single supply source and stringent QA testing enables us to supply the purest rod and wire grades in specific configurations. Our gold, silver, and platinum rods are delivered in straight formats in lengths of up to 6 ft. We can also engineer transition metal alloys, such as iridium-platinum rods for medical-grade electrodes.

The same level of attention is paid to our precious metal wire production line. Just like our gold, silver, and platinum rods, we can offer precious metal wires with purities approaching 99.99%. With skilled metallurgists at our disposal, we can also engineer precision alloys with specific concentration levels to various specifications.

See the specifications and applications tabs on this page to learn more about the precious metal rods and wires. Or, contact a member of the XRF Scientific team today if you have any questions.
