Besides acting as a base for all brasses and bronzes, copper is an engineering material in its own right. C101 harnesses high electrical and thermal conductivity and along with having a high ductility and impact strength, it can be a very useful material.
A restriction of C101 is poor weldability and as a result welding is not recommended.
As mentioned above, the versatility of C101 leads to lots of potential different uses…
· It can be used in countless electrical and domestic appliances.
· It features in many different components used in the automotive industry.
· General engineering.
· Cold-formed parts.
