Thermostatic bimetal is a laminated composite material that usually consists of two firmly joined metals or metal alloys with di
In case of temperature changes the strips, disks or parts change their shape in a defined way. If this change in shape is suppressed, a setting force is obtained which can be used for a mechanical displacement. By combining it with cladding and intermediate layers certain properties such as electrical resistivity, corrosion resistance etc. can be deliberately influenced.
Thermostatic bimetals are established in a wide range of applications other than microelectronics. They are used to control or limit temperature-dependent variables by means of a relatively simple design. Their easy handling as well as their high reliability and low costs are the decisive advantages for their application in:
