Ruthenium (Ru) is an inert rare transition metal. Most ruthenium produced is used in wear-resistant electrical contacts, thick-film resistors, platinum alloys and chemistry catalyst. A new application of ruthenium is as the optical layer for extreme ultraviolet photomasks.

The dimensions and purities can be customized upon request. Please contact us for customization or bulk orders.
