IAM Drijfhout supplies precious metal items, such as sputter targets, tubes, rods, wires, and ribbons, serving a myriad of functions in the semiconductor, medical, and aerospace sectors. However, given the limited availability and increasing cost of gold, IAM Drijfhout’s recycling service has become extremely important.
Gold sputter targets are used in the semiconductor and thin film industries. Various deposition techniques employ these targets for manufacturing computer chips, optical devices, and other similar products.
In the medical industry, gold rods are incorporated into devices that require high precision and reliability. Gold’s non-reactive nature ensures that these rods remain unaffected by bodily fluids and remain safe for internal use. Gold is also highly resistant to bacteria and corrosion and thus gold tubes can be found in a range of medical equipment, playing a significant role in various chemical processes.
Gold tubes are also integral to various aerospace industrial applications owing to their thermal and electrical conductivity.
Lastly electronics, resistors, medical devices, and semiconductors utilize gold wires and ribbons. Gold, with its superior electrical conductivity and resistance to tarnish and corrosion, makes these wires incredibly efficient and durable.
