Excellent electrical conductivity, high machinability, high thermal conductivity
145 Tellurium is an alloy with copper as its main alloying component. Like other copper materials, the 145 is commonly used and very popular for its high conductivity properties. Also, the 145 is known for being a long-life metal.
|CDA 145, ASTM B301 , SAE J461, J463, B-124||Aerospace, Energy, Defense, Industrial, Automotive & Transportation||Electrical switches, transformers, breakers, fasteners, socket connectors, sprinkler heads, pins, bolts, motor parts, laser nozzles||Bar, Rectangular Bar, Plate, Tubing, Sheet, Strip, Coil|
High strength, high hardness, great electrical conductivity, good resistance to heat, easily formed, easily machined
172 Beryllium is the most widely used copper-beryllium alloy. Relative to other copper alloys, the 172 has one of the highest strength and hardness.
|ASTM B196, AMS 4533||Aerospace, Energy, Defense, Industrial, Automotive & Transportation||Connectors, contact bridges, fasteners, screws, bolts, springs, tools, valves, flexible metal hose||Bar, Rectangular Bar, Plate, Tubing, Sheet, Strip, Coil|
932 Bearing Bronze
Low friction, reasonable corrosion resistance, excellent strength, excellent machinability, great wear resistance
932 Bearing Bronze is a general purpose bronze alloy used extensively for its excellent range of qualities, especially its machining properties and strength.
