Gold Wire

Gold wire is a metallic conductor from Goodfellow's range of wires. Gold has very high electrical and thermal conductivity, and is extremely malleable and ductile. Gold wire is used in microelectronics to make connections between components and integrated circuits. It is also used in jewelry due to its corrosion resistance, malleability and attractive yellow color. With its unique properties, gold wire enables critical applications across electronics, medical devices, aerospace and other industries.
