The values represent those typically required rather than the limits that are and sections other than forging stock '. The leaded version has improved machinability. Rod for free machining purposes' Compositions given are the EN materials appropriate to designation number.

The typical mechanical properties shown apply to rod for free machining and general purposes which can have This table includes materials previously included in BS 'Specification for copper and copper alloy rods significant cold drawing after extrusion.


Rod for general purposes' Compositions: The lead in CWR improves machinability. Designation Composition. Products such as hollows and profiles which are not normally significantly cold drawn will have the lower individual product forms: The hardness of sections is typically HV.

Composition ranges may be outside those EN 'Copper and copper alloys. Lacquer coatings can be used to protect the surface and retain the original alloy colour. An acrylic coating with benzotriazole as an additive will last several years under most outdoor, abrasion-free conditions.

Yield Strength The yield point for Copper alloys is not sharply defined.

As a result it tends to be reported as either a 0. Most commonly the 0. Hardening by cold working means the material becomes less ductile, and yield strength approaches the tensile strength.

Joining Commonly employed processes such as brazing, welding and soldering can be used to join most Copper alloys.

Compositions, Applications and Properties

Soldering is often used for electrical connections. High Lead content alloys are unsuitable for welding. Copper and Copper alloys can also be joined using mechanical means such as rivets and screws.

Therefore, it is relatively inert against chemicals. Copper and copper compounds give a greenish color to a flame. Mechanical properties of copper The primary mechanical properties of copper—hardness, strength and ductility—determine its condition.

Copper can be supplied in a range of conditions from annealed soft to fully hard, which is obtained by cold working. The strength and hardness of copper can also be increased by alloying, but this results in a decrease in electrical conductivity. Physical properties of copper Electrical conductivity The generation, transmission and use of electricity has transformed the modern world.

This has been made possible by copper of at least It is available in wrought form as wire, cable, strip and busbars and as castings for such components as electrical switchgear and welding equipment. Thermal conductivity Copper is a good conductor of heat about 30 times better than stainless steel and 1.

Coppers and Copper Alloys Designations and Standards (UK)

This leads to applications where rapid heat transfer is required such as heat exchangers in air conditioning units, vehicle radiators, heat sinks in computers, heat sealing machines and televisions, and as water-cooled furnace components.

Good-quality spark plugs have a central copper electrode to enable heat to be removed and prevent overheating.The higher melting temperature facilitates brazing with standard filler materials.

Good corrosion resistance. Schutzenberger has experimented upon the combustibility of various mixtures of oxygen and hydrogen, or hydro-carbons. Unwrought 1 and Wrought Coppers. Strip for leadframes see EN 88 0. Akanksha Rajput. See Table 7 for full details of compositions and properties.
