The material PtRh20 (in the literature also Pt20Rh, Pt80Rh20 or PtRh80/20) is used for highly stressed laboratory equipment, catalysts, electrodes, glass fiber nozzles and lining materials, for crucibles, casings and stirrers in viscometry as well as for glass melting tanks. The mechanical, thermal and corrosive resistance increases with increasing rhodium content. An advantage of the platinum-rhodium alloy is that even in an oxidizing atmosphere only a minimum of weight loss occurs. The material is ductile, corrosion-resistant, oxidation-resistant and high temperature resistant. It is machinable, roll-cladable and conditionally deductible from the gas phase.

This material data has been provided by WIAM.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
