Founded in 1973 in Hawthorne, N.J. to manufacture high precision square wire for connectors and electronic components, Fisk Alloy invented PERCON in the 1990ies, a family of environmentally friendly copper alloys combining high conductivity with high tensile strength. The cool thing about PERCON it that it was RoHS compliant well before the EU directive came out.
Fisk Alloy's products can be found in all demanding markets where failure is not an option and who require high performance components: Aerospace, Medical, Robotics, Automotive and E-Textiles.
Fisk Alloy PERCON alloys are so good and homogeneous in their composition that we draw them to ultra-fine gauge sizes, AWG 56 being currently the finest size which corresponds to 12 microns or a third of a human hair. They combine these single-end wires to stranded constructions, 7-ends, 19-ends as well as rope-lay conductors putting up to 1000 single-ends together.
The main advantages of Fisk Alloy PERCON alloys are superior flex life for all cables in movement, excellent softening resistance when exposed to high temperatures as well as opportunities for size and weight saving thanks to great strength without sacrificing conductivity. A few years ago they invented Percon 28, unique in its capability of combining 80 KSI tensile strength with 85% electrical conductivity in a soft-annealed condition. No other alloy world-wide is able to match these properties.
E-textiles is an ideal market for PERCON and especially Percon 28, as their wire can be woven, knitted and embroidered invisibly into the fabric, allowing signal transmission for various data-sensing and monitoring purposes.
