Use of metals in U boat pressure hulls

Hi Guys,

We have just recovered a sample of the pressure hull from a type IX. It seems uneven thickness and not the 18mm we were lead to expect. How does the steel vary along the length of the hull?

Also on testing the metal for toxins we found traces of Lead (which I'm assuming is from the batteries) and also lots of platinum. Any idea where the platinum would come from?
