Invar Fasteners are typically used in high performance applications that require a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and high dimensional stability. Invar is a Nickel-Iron based alloy that offers a range of properties depending on the grade and chemical composition. These fasteners are typically supplied in:
Often referred to as Alloy 36, this alloy consists of 64% Iron and 36% Nickel. It provides a rate of thermal expansion approximately one-tenth that of Carbon Steel at temperatures up to 200°C, with an almost zero rate of thermal expansion at cryogenic temperatures as low as -150°C. Invar 36 also features high strength and toughness at cryogenic temperatures – ideal for a range of low temperature or low expansion applications e.g. structural components and precision instruments.
Invar 32-5 or Alloy 32-5 is a magnetic alloy composed of 32% Nickel, 5% Cobalt and the balance Iron. Designed to provide minimum thermal expansion at ambient temperatures, Super Invar hosts thermal expansion properties less than that of Invar 36 when used between -55°C and 95°C. With a CTE approximately one-third that of regular Invar, these fasteners are regularly utilised for precision measuring devices where changes in dimensions due to thermal expansion should be minimal.
