Depending on the materials selected and the product form NOBILIS METALS Clad Products will fall within the dimensional ranges shown below.
The dimensional range of tubing depend to a degree on the outside diameter to wall ratio as well as the material or alloy selected. NOBILIS METALS makes both seamless and seamed tubing and can accommodate:
Outside Diameters from .060" (1.52 mm) to 1.280" (32.5 mm)
Wall thicknesses from 0027" (.069 mm) to .150" (3.81 mm)
Tube Length: Maximum tube lengths are of course determined by the OD and wall dimensions of the tube. Tube can be cut to length as required.

Clads for Electrical Applications
• Test Probes - Circuit Boards
• Electrical Contacts
Clads as Contact Alloys
A simple example of an electrical contact would be a switch which has two pieces of metal called contacts that touch to make a circuit, and separate to break the circuit. The contact material is chosen for its resistance to corrosion, because most metals form insulating oxides that would prevent the switch from working.
Electrical Contacts are often clad with precious metals or manufactured from solid precious metal alloys. Contact materials are also chosen on the basis of electrical conductivity, hardness (resistance to abrasive wear), mechanical strength, low cost and low toxicity.
Clads as Electrodes
An electrode is an electrical conductor used to make contact with a nonmetallic part of a circuit (e.g. a semiconductor, an electrolyte or a vacuum). Electrodes can be made from Gold, Silver, Platinum and combination alloys, depending on the application and required characteristics appropriate to the application
