C10100 OXYGEN-FREE (OFHC) COPPER ROUND BAR & PLATE

C10100 Oxygen-Free Copper is produced by the direct conversion of selected refined cathodes and castings under carefully controlled conditions to prevent any contamination of the pure oxygen-free metal during processing. The method of producing O.F.H.C. Copper insures extra high grade of metal with a copper content of 99.99%. With so small a content of extraneous elements, the inherent properties of elemental copper are brought forth to a high degree. Characteristics are high ductility, high electrical and thermal conductivity, high impact strength, good creep resistance, ease of welding, and low volatility under high vacuum. C10100 Copper Conforms to ASTM B187 for bar & ASTM B152 for plate.

C18200 CHROME COPPER - RWMA CLASS II ROUND BAR & PLATE

C18200 Class II Chromium Copper is a heat treatable, corrosion resistant alloy which combines high electrical conductivity with high strength. Class II chrome copper is a superior resistance welding electrode material specifically recommended for high level production spot welding and seam welding of clean mild steels, low alloy steels, low conductivity brasses and bronzes. Typical applications include projection welding dies, seam welder shafts and bearings, flash and butt welding dies, resistance welding electrodes, spot welding tips, seam welding wheels, electrode holder jaws, cable connectors, current carrying structural members, electrical switch gears and electrical and thermal conductors requiring greater strength than copper.


bullet C17510 BERYLLIUM COPPER - RWMA CLASS III ROUND BAR & PLATE

C17510 Class III Beryllium Copper has high thermal conductivity combined with good hardness and high temperature strength. This alloy is being chosen with increasing frequency for applications requiring a combination of high electrical conductivity and mechanical strength, and for applications requiring wear and corrosion resistance. Alloy C17510 Class III beryllium copper is specifically recommended for projection welding dies, flash and butt welding dies, current carrying shafts and bushings. Class III alloy (having higher strength than class II), is recommended for highly stressed welder structural current carrying members and heavy-duty offset electrode holders. Class III alloy is generally recommended for spot welding and seam welding wheels having high electrical resistance, such as stainless steels.

C36000 FREE-MACHINING BRASS ROUND BARS & HEXAGONS

C36000 Free-Cutting Brass is ideally suited for high speed machining operations with its superior machinability, thread rolling and knurling characteristics. Its machinability rating of 100 is standard against which all other copper alloys are rated. It is easily soldered or brazed and has good resistance to corrosion. Typical applications included gears, pinions, plumbing ware fittings, adapters, valves, valve stems and screw machine products. Conforms to specification ASTM B16.


bullet

C46400 NAVAL BRASS ROUND BARS, PLATES, DISCS & RINGS

C46400 Naval Brass provides a high degree of corrosion resistance to seawater at even higher than normal temperatures while also assuring greater strength and rigidity. It possesses excellent capacity for hot working and adapts well for hot forging and pressing. This naval brass also lends itself to drawing, forming, bending and heading. It is readily soldered, brazed and  welded. Typical applications include nuts, bolts, rivets, valve stems, pump shafts and marine hardware. Conforms to specification ASTM B21.


bullet

C51000 "5% A" PHOSPHOR BRONZE ROUND BARS

C51000 Phosphor Bronze alloy possess a higher yield strength than is readily available in most cast products. Typical applications for phosphor bronze include bearings, bushings, gears, pinions, shafts, thrust washers and valve parts. Can be readily brazed or soldered. Capacity for being cold worked is good. Conforms to specification ASTM B139.


bullet

C63000 NICKEL ALUMINUM BRONZE BAR, PLATE, DISCS & RINGS

C63000 (AMS 4640) Nickel Aluminum Bronze alloy is an excellent choice for applications involving heavy loads, adhesive wear, friction, abrasive wear and corrosion. The addition of nickel increases the alloys strength without diminishing its excellent ductility, toughness and corrosion resistance. Alloy C63000 nickel aluminum bronze has gained wide acceptance in the aircraft industry for severe landing gear service in products such as strut bearings, main pistons, trunnion bearings and similar vital components. Conforms to specification ASTM B130
