VDM® Alloy 36 is a binary iron-nickel alloy with a particularly low heat expansion coefficient, whereby the levels of carbon and manganese as well as freedom of impurities are significant. Cold forming also reduces the heat expansion. Artificial aging with gradual heat treatment stabilizes the expansion coefficients in a selected temperature range. VDM® Alloy 36 is characterized by:  an extremely low expansion coefficient between -250 °C (-418 °F) and +200 °C (392 °F)  good ductility and toughness. Applications VDM® Alloy 36 was developed for applications requiring the lowest possible heat expansion. Typical applications are:  Manufacturing, storage and transport of liquefied gases  Components for OLED screens  Measuring and control devices for temperatures below 200 °C (392 °F), e.g. for thermostats  Bushings for screw or rivet joints between various metals  Bi-metal components and thermostatic bi-metals, where VDM® Alloy 36 is the passive component  Forms for the production of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFP), especially for the aerospace industry  Frameworks for electronic control units in satellites and space travel down to -200 °C (-328 °F)  Support elements for electro-magnetic lenses in laser control units  Pendulum  Components for the automotive industry  Overhead power lines in an alloyed, age-hardenable variant
