At Hermetix, we understand the critical role that packaging plays in your industry. That’s why we have designed our Kovar packages to meet the most demanding requirements. As you read this article, you will discover the unique features of our Kovar packages and how we can benefit your business.

What are Kovar Packages?


Kovar is an alloy containing nickel, cobalt, and iron, which has a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE). It is commonly used in the electronic industry for packaging components, which need to withstand extreme temperatures while maintaining our mechanical integrity. Kovar packages provide excellent hermeticity, which prevents moisture, oxygen, and other contaminants from entering the package.
