Copper Aluminum Dovetail Clad is a breakthrough technology for joining copper and aluminum side-by-side in long continuous master coils. These coils can easily be stamped and formed to create busbars or lead tabs, enabling high-volume, low-cost laser assembly especially fitted to automotive format lithium-ion battery packs. Based on nearly 50 years of expertise in cladding aluminum to copper for high-reliability automotive lead frame applications, Materion Technical Materials has taken their state-of-the-art metal cladding technology to a new level to meet the challenges facing every lithium-ion battery cell and pack designer: how to join copper and aluminum in your battery pack. To learn how our Copper-Aluminum Dovetail Clad® Metal Technology enables laser welding in your battery pack,
MoldMAX is tailored for all types of plastic injection molds. With excellent machinability and high impact strength, these alloys allow easy fabrication of molds that stand up in the plastic injection molding process. With a unique combination of strength and thermal conductivity, MoldMAX alloys improve cycle time and part quality, even when used for only selected cores and inserts. When used in steel molds, MoldMAX cools hot spots, reducing or eliminating the need for cooling channels. By minimizing the temperature differences of mold parts, MoldMAX provides tighter molded tolerances and less post-mold shrinking or warping.
Rarely does a single alloy offer the range of diverse properties required by today’s sophisticated electronic and electrical applications. Materion's clad metal process, electron beam welding, electroplating and related technologies offer designers the flexibility to meet today’s performance challenges. Metal cladding, the process of joining dissimilar metals by applying high pressure without brazing alloys or adhesives, creates a material custom-engineered to the application. Because of our experience with virtually every base metal and cladding combination, we are able to help our customers optimize surface and core metal characteristics. At Materion we don’t have a catalog of products; we create innovative custom solutions for global market leaders. We design materials, fabricate prototypes, and get samples into your hands quickly with the primary focus always being quality and performance.
When you need optimal adhesion, our preforms are fabricated to meet your exacting standards.

GETTER COMBO-LIDS™ - COMBINING GETTER TECHNOLOGY WITH COVER LID For high reliability applications, certain GaAs electronic devices, MEMS devices and other sensitive sensors must be hermetically packaged with a sealed cavity completely free of hydrogen or all gases. Hydrogen degrades the long term reliability of GaAs devices. Many MEMS devices require vacuum for proper performance.
Epoxy with strong reliable adhesion for your non-hermetic applications, especially in combination with our Epo-Lids™. MEG 150 It is typically used to bond cup-shaped ceramic caps onto ceramic packages for RF transistors. MEG 165 is optimal for sealing smooth, flat surfaces and serves as a low cost alternative to solder. Both are excellent electrical insulators, and protect electrical components from short circuiting, dust and moisture. For more information, see our Technical Data Sheets MEG 150 and MEG 165.

When you need cover lids for high reliability applications in semiconductor, MEMS, crystal oscillator, medical and optical devices, our unique patented Combo-Lids™ can function in the harshest service environments. Top of Combo Lid Illustration The base metal of our high performance Combo-Lids™ is Kovar™ or Alloy 42, which is plated with nickel and gold flash, and tack-welded to a solder perform, usually AuSn eutectic. The nickel layer inhibits corrosion, while the precious metal (gold) layer promotes solderability and ensures a clean particulate-free surface. Tack-welding the solder preform to the lid conveniently aligns the solder to the perimeter of the lid, simplifying handling and reducing part count. Therefore, Hermetic Combo-Lids™ offer a best-cost solution.
