Webinar Next generation ODS alloys

Next Generation ODS Alloys – How DPH Strong Can Impact Your Glass Manufacturing.

Platinum and platinum alloys such as platinum-rhodium are indispensable for the glass industry to produce high quality glass. In times of volatile and extraordinarily high rhodium prices, how can high-quality glass be produced economically? Heraeus addressed this challenge through the development of our latest generation of ODS alloys – DPH Strong. DPH-strong inherited the well-known properties of our existing DPH material portfolio, while simultaneously improving its high temperature properties. For certain applications, DPH Strong even enables to completely remove rhodium as an additive in platinum alloys, while in other applications the amount of precious metal can be decreased by 50 %.

Get to know our newest additions to the DPH-family: Pt DPH Strong and PtRh10 DPH Strong. Discuss potential use cases with our experts!
