Disc with straight wraparound electrode

Disc with annular wraparound electrode

Other custom electrode configurations are available on request.

Dimensional Range
  • Diameter from 3mm (0.12”) to 254mm (10”)
  • Thickness from 0.08mm (0.003”) to 25.4mm (1”)

Custom sizes dimensions outside of the above may be possible – please consult for further information.


Standard Mechanical Tolerances
  • Diameter ± 0.150mm
  • Thickness ± 0.05mm

Tighter mechanical tolerances are achievable but are dependent on the disc diameter and thickness.


Metallisation Type
  • Standard metallisation: Silver fired thick film
  • Evaporated nickel
  • Electroless nickel - Gold flash
  • Gold over Nichrome - Evaporating (others available on request)
