TIP OF THE WEEK

Iridium: The Element of Exceptional Applications

Iridium, a rare and precious metal, is valued for its exceptional properties and applications
across various fields.
Industrial Use: Iridium’s resistance to heat and corrosion makes it invaluable for high-
temperature crucibles, electrical contacts, and spark plugs.

Electronics: Iridium’s reliability in harsh environments ensures its use in electronics, where it
contributes to secure electrical connections and durable components.
Catalysis: Iridium catalysts are crucial in chemical and pharmaceutical production, owing to
their stability and efficiency.
Chrom Electroplating: Mix Metal Oxide (MMO)on titanium anodes for stable coating
process.

Jewelry: Occasionally, iridium enhances the luster and strength of precious metals like
platinum and gold in high-end jewelry.
Its significance extends beyond Earth, as an iridium-rich sediment layer supports the theory
of a massive asteroid impact that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. This unique metal,
with its extraordinary properties, continues to shape various aspects of our world and our
understanding of our planet’s history.

As of October 2023 Iridium price is ~150 $/gram (~4600$/ounce)*
