Iridium Rod

SKU: IR007940 Category: Tags: , ,

An Iridium rod is used to manufacture components for highly demanding applications where the environment is extremely corrosive. However machining iridium is extremely difficult due to its hard brittle nature. Larger diameter iridium rods are used to produce spark plugs.

Antiprotons are produced at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research by colliding a 26 GeV/c proton beam with a fixed target made of a 3 mm diameter, 55 mm length iridium core.
