New generation of golds, materials of the future

For 7000 years, gold has been used mainly for aesthetic and monetary purposes. Applications also use its optical or electrical properties but they remain confined in volume. Today, DAUMET opens up a much wider range of possible applications thanks to its innovative technology.

In nature, there is only one metal capable of replacing gold: tungsten. DAUMET carries this technology which allows for the first time to combine these two metals and thus:

  • on the one hand, to substitute part of the gold in its current applications
  • on the other hand, to offer materials with properties that were previously impossible (the whitest gold in the world is an example).

DAUMET offers today to industrial actors
to accompany them in the development and optimization of their products
through these two major axes.

REDUCE THE PROPORTION OF PURE GOLD IN YOUR GOLD COMPONENTS

Today, your thin film gold deposits require a significant thickness to reconcile the life of your product with the ductility of gold. Thanks to its alloys, DAUMET co-develops “frugal” gold solutions aiming at optimizing the quality of your products and reducing in a concrete way the environmental footprint of your offer.

CREATING NEW USES

With its alloys such as white gold, DAUMET has revealed hitherto unsuspected properties of gold. The company proposes to design and develop together processes, which could use thin layers, powders or even nanoparticles.

Example in the automotive industry: reduce the threshold temperature of catalytic converters.
