Percon® HS-95 Conductor Wire

Download PDF

Percon HS-95 is engineered to be both RoHS compliant and to have an excellent combination of strength and conductivity. So named and having a tensile strength of 95,000psi (656 Mpa), HS-95 is a true ultra high strength alloy well suited for fine and ultra-fine wire and stranded constructions as found in medical and aerospace applications.

Key Attributes of Percon HS-95

  • Very high strength alloy conductor.
  • Resists thermal softening when exposed to elevated temperatures.
  • Excellent resistance to corrosive environments.
  • Has identical chemical, mechanical and electrical properties to CS-95.

Percon HS-95 is available plated with silver or nickel.
