Kovar® is an iron cobalt nickel alloy with a coefficient of thermal expansion like that of hard glass. Since Kovar Alloy is tough and versatile, while employing extensive quality controls throughout UNS K94610 alloy’s manufacturing process to ensure uniform physical and mechanical properties for ease in deep drawing, stamping and machining are consistently achieved. Furthermore, the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of Kovar® is its most dynamic mechanical property.

Kovar Alloy Product Advantages

Expansion alloy Kovar is precisely formulated and controlled to produce a coefficient of thermal expansion that is very close to that of hard glass or ceramic, meaning that it expands and contracts at a similar rate. It is therefore perfect in applications where it is used in conjunction with glass or ceramic materials, especially where a hermetic seal must be maintained across a wide temperature range. Other key Kovar benefits include:
  • Extremely low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE)
  • Metal stamping capabilities
  • Advanced dimensional stability

Kovar® & Coefficient of Thermal Expansion

Iron cobalt-nickel alloy Kovar® is precisely formulated and controlled to produce a coefficient of thermal expansion that is very close to that of hard glass or ceramic, which means that it expands and contracts at a similar rate. This material is ideal for applications that require glass to metal seals, especially where a hermetic seal must be maintained across a wide temperature range.
