Custom made products from precious metal

Precious metals are applied in variety of industries because of their unique properties such as a high melting point, being chemically inert as well as an excellent conductor, and being highly resistant to tarnishing and corrosion. Precious metal products are often developed for specific purposes. IAM Drijfhout can offer a large range of custom-made products. For example, we offer springs, gauze, rings, and different kinds of electrodes that are, for instance, applied in flow measurerers. New products can be produced internally at our company, or at one of our (international) partners.
