Copper Alloys

Copper and its alloys are among the most variable or versatile engineering materials available. Copper’s combinations of strength, conductivity, corrosion resistance, machinability and ductility make it available for a wide range of applications. These properties of copper can be further improved thanks to various components and production methods.

Electrical Conductivity: Copper is the material with the highest electrical conductivity among metals. Silver or other elements can be added to copper without losing any of its strength, softening resistance, or other properties in terms of conductivity.

Thermal Conductivity: Thermal conductivity is similar to electrical conductivity. For this feature, copper alloys can compensate for the loss in conductivity by increasing corrosion resistance.
