Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use copper alloys over pure copper?

Pure copper offers excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, however, alloys have a significant advantage in terms of strength, corrosion resistance, design flexibility, and other mechanical properties. Since alloys have enhanced properties and design flexibility, they’re better suited for most applications.

Which alloys are made with copper?

Copper can be mixed with a wide variety of metals. Some popular alloys are brass, bronze, arsenical copper, billon, cupronickel, beryllium copper, aluminum bronze, nickel silver, gunmetal, and silicon bronze. There are many such alloys that use copper as one of the constituents.

Does copper alloy tarnish or turn green?

Certain alloys of copper such as bronze and brass do turn green over time, however, whether the alloy will tarnish or not is heavily dependent on the composition and environment. Some alloys may tarnish at a slower pace or not at all. Protective coatings and regular maintenance is the most effective way of preventing or slowing down tarnishing.

What are the uses of copper powder?

Thanks to its exceptional electrical and thermal conductivity, powdered copper is used in the electronics industry for wiring, conductive inks, printed circuit boards, and electrical contacts. It’s also an essential material for brake pads in automotive, thermal management systems, and chemical reactions.
