Abstract: The present invention, which is aimed at providing a method for manufacturing a clad material that can be used for the anode cases and cathode cases of button-type microbatteries and other miniature electronic devices requiring the use of comparatively thin, drawable sheets, allows the difference between r values, or Lankford values (which characterize the plastic anisotropy between the rolling/bonding direction of a clad material and a direction at a prescribed angle to the rolling/bonding direction) to be reduced by preforming cold rolling at a reduction of 30% or lower in addition to performing a conventional method for manufacturing a clad material, making it possible to substantially enhance the mechanical strength of the clad material and to mass-produce clad materials that have low reduction anisotropy.
Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to provide a bimetal having a same or wider proportional temperature range than a bimetal using a 42 wt % Ni--Fe alloy as a low thermal expansion alloy, and a higher bending characteristic of a large bending coefficient than a bimetal using a 36 wt % Ni--Fe alloy. The bimetal is formed by bonding a Ni--Co--Fe group low thermal expansion alloy, wherein a total amount of Ni and Co restricted to a very narrow containing range is within a specific composition range, a thermal expansion coefficient at 30 to 100.degree.C. is made similar to that of a 31 wt % Ni--5 wt % Co--Fe alloy of a nominal composition, a thermal expansion is very small and 2.times.10.sup.-6 /.degree.C. or less in the temperature range of 30.degree.to 300.degree. C., and further, a transition point is 250.degree. C. or higher and a transformation temperature is 50.degree. C.
Abstract: A composite foil brazing material for joining ceramics to each other or to metal, which is made up of a core of Ti and outer layers of Ni or Ni alloy containing less than 80% of Cu, with the core and the composite foil having the respective sectional areas whose ratio is 5/10 to 9/10.
