Frequently Asked Questions

What is C18150?

C18150 is a copper chromium zirconium alloy that boasts high strength, conductivity, and wear resistance. C18150 copper can endure temperatures up to 500°C (932°F) which is why it finds applications in automotive and space industries, particularly in resistance welding and soldering processes.

What are the uses of C18150?

Given its high strength, conductivity, and resistance to elevated temperatures, C18150 finds use in a number of advanced industries such as aerospace and automotive. It’s used to craft electrical parts, resistance and arc welding, etc through Metal Injection Moulding (MIM), Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), and Binder Jetting (BJ).

Why is zirconium added to C18150 copper?

Zirconium enhances copper alloys by adding strength, heat, and corrosion resistance. It’s necessary for deoxidizing copper which improves the workability of the metal powder by reducing the presence of pores and blowholes in the solidified copper.

What is the chemical composition of CuCrZr alloy?

CuCrZr is an alloy of copper chromium zirconium with remarkable strength, conductivity, and resistance to wear and oxidation. C18150 copper contains very low, less than or equal to 0.1%, of oxygen and silicon for higher purity which results in high-performing components for industrial applications.
