Our copper-based alloys are geared towards high performance where a combination of strength plus electrical and thermal conductivity are required. The ToughMet® range of alloys also offers good bearing properties.
Copper-based alloys contain copper as the primary metal, with other elements added to enhance their properties.
Each alloy composition offers unique properties suited for specific applications, ranging from strength, good formability, and electrical and electronic components to architectural and industrial uses.
The unique combination of properties displayed by the copper alloys makes them tried and tested solutions for many applications that may confront South African users and manufacturers as they strive to compete. 2
They complement our offering of stainless steel and nickel alloys.
