highly conductive, low corrosive metal

05/16/2008 1:22 PM

I am looking for the most affordable metal that is highly conductive and will not dissolve in a bath of caustic salts. Any suggestions?

Conductive of heat or electricity?

Nature of salts, and their temerature?

Hmmm . . . Gold is less expensive than platinum, which would make it more affordable.

How conductive does it need to be?

Gold / Platinum, are both way to pricey. We are looking for something more like a high grade stainless that is low in nickel as the nickel will dissolve. It needs to be highly conductive of electricity.

Titanium is actually a little better conductor than platinum, and it's highly resistant to corrosion.
