Phynox from Alloy Wire International is a highly versatile Colbalt-Chromium alloy that is used in a wide breadth of applications. Also known as Elgiloy, Conichrome and Alloy 3J21, Phynox has proven its worth as a highly reliable alloy with outstanding corrosion resistance, even in extreme settings. This supports its common uses, such as clinical devices, marine applications, and springs in high-stress settings.
Other attributes, such as being non-magnetic and having excellent fatigue life, stand Phynox apart from other alloys. Thanks to its corrosion resistance, Phynox is also highly suited to sea water applications.
Phynox is commonly relied upon in clinical environments due to its combination of high strength, ductility and good mechanical properties at ambient temperatures. This makes it ideal for clinical applications, such as medical devices, dental products, surgical implants and orthopaedics. In addition, AWI is AS9100, ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 13485 certified, giving you assurance that our wire is delivered to the highest possible standards and suitable for medical usage.

AWI is proud to offer Phynox in a range of size and shapes to suit whatever your project requires:
These formats can be packaged in coils, spools, bars or lengths, offering maximum flexibility for your project. This includes being able to deliver the alloy in a form that can be easily manufactured into springs by your preferred manufacturer.
We are trusted to deliver the golden standard of alloy wire all over the globe. When you partner with Alloy Wire, you get six distinct advantages over competitors in the industry. Our 6 key advantages are as follows:
Phynox is used in the most demanding spring applications, thanks to its incredible corrosion resistance. Alloy Wire can provide a bespoke tensile by using different degrees of cold work to achieve the desired strength ready for spring forming, with no extra engineering needed. Phynox is also an age hardenable alloy – by using a heat treatment of 520°C for 5 hours to strengthen the material after the forming of springs, for example.
