Copper plate has an impressively high electrical conductivity. In fact, the only metal more conductive than copper is silver. Because of its high conductivity--as well as its ease of use, durability, and aesthetic appeal--copper plate can be used in a variety of projects, from pluming to windchimes.
Alro stocks copper bar, sheet, plate pipe and copper tubing in 110 Copper (CDA C11000) tube grade. Learn more about 110 Copper.
Alro stocks 110 Copper, CDA C11000, a grade with the highest electrical conductivity of any metal except silver. Copper has an extremely wide range of applications based on its conductivity, corrosion resistance, workability, and beauty. C110 Copper has high electrical and thermal conductivity, good corrosion resistance and solderability.
Alro stocks C17200, also known as Alloy 25, the most commonly utilized beryllium copper (BeCu) alloy and is notable for exhibiting the highest strength and hardness compared to commercial copper alloys. 172 copper strength and hardness are similar to that of steel. Beryllium Copper has extremely high hardness and tensile strength but less electrical conductivity than Class III alloys. C17200 copper's ultimate tensile and Rockwell hardness properties in a peak aged condition are in the 200 ksi range and RC 45 respectively (electrical conductivity 22% IACS minimum). End uses include electrical, fasteners, industrial pumps and bearings, firing pins and other tools. Alro stocks 172 BeCu copper plate and copper sheet in various thicknesses and widths.
