Imitation best form of flattery?

There is an old saying that imitation is the best form of flattery and while it may be true in some cases, in the world of manufacturing that is not always the case.

The Technology Metals

Given the high demand for Rare Earth Metals in modern technology. If the alloy developed from these metals is ductile, and the application allows for an open area configuration. In theory expanding the Rare Earth Metal alloy, may be more cost-effective in the development of the technology application . Enjoy the infographic below on Rare Earth Elements designed by the folks at the Visual Capitalist.

What effect does tarnish on copper have on product parameters?

This is one of the more common questions that we are asked. Customers are primarily concerned with adhesion and surface resistance. Does the surface resistance increase with increased tarnish levels?  Will epoxy adhere to a tarnished copper surface? To try and provide an answer, we undertook some elementary evaluations of copper samples with varying levels of tarnish identified using the L*a*b* color space coordinates. For those unfamiliar with the L*a*b* system, the short answer is that every color can be defined in terms of 3 numbers.  The first number, “L”, is for lightness which ranges from 0-100, with 0 being black and 100 being white. Everything else is shades of gray. The second number, “a”, is either positive (Red) or negative (green). The third number, “b”, is either positive (yellow) or negative (blue).  That is it in a nutshell. All shades of copper and its tarnish can be defined in this way.
