Materials
for demanding applications

High-performance are designed to meet a specific challenge. In medical applications, these alloys are typically optimized to improve on characteristics such as corrosion resistance, strength, fatigue resistance, ductility, wear resistance or biocompatibility.

Fort Wayne Metals can further expand the usefulness of these materials by combining them with other alloys in a DFT® metal-on metal composite. For example, a Drawn Filled Tube consisting of a 35N LT® sheath and a silver core provides high conductivity through the core, while the 35N LT® gives the composite a high level of strength and fatigue resistance.

We routinely draw the following high-performance alloys:
  • 35N LT® (ASTM F562 · ISO 5832-6)
  • MP35N® (ASTM F562 · ISO 5832-6)
  • L605 (ASTM F90 · ISO 5832-5)
  • FWM® 1058 (ASTM F1058 · ISO 5832-7) – equivalent to Conichrome®, Phynox® and Elgiloy®
  • FWM® 1537 (ASTM F1537 · ISO 5832-12)
