Platinum Balls

Abbott platinum balls are especially suited for electrical and electronic contacts. Abbott’s precision finish ensures uniformity of conductivity and assures reliable performance for electronic circuitry. Since Abbott platinum balls are free from pits, cuts or other surface imperfections, they are also perfect for use in jewelry. Abbott produces a wide range of platinum alloys, including Nickel, Iridium and Palladium. Abbott engineers will work with you to develop the right platinum balls for your electrical contact, electronics or jewelry application. Platinum balls are available in a range of sizes, tolerances and grades. Abbott also manufactures miniature platinum rivets for use in electrical contacts in automotive applications. Please contact one of our engineers for more information on the miniature Platinum Rivets. Pricing is based on raw material costs.
