Platinum Wire Description

Platinum wire shares properties with its source material. Platinum is a dense, malleable, ductile, highly unreactive, highly resistant to corrosion and high temperatures, silverish-white transition metal. Its name is derived from the Spanish term platino, meaning “little silver”. Platinum is one of the rarer elements in Earth’s crust, with an average abundance of approximately 5 μg/kg. It is unaffected by oxygen and water and is only soluble in aqua regia or fused alkalis. Its most prominent commercial application is as a catalytic converter in vehicles.
