Alro Steel was established in 1948 by Al and Robert Glick and has grown to include Alro Plastics, Alro Industrial Supply and Alro Metals Outlet.

Copper Plate

Copper Plate

Alro stocks both 110 Copper plate and 172 Beryllium Copper plate. 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 tubing can be used in a variety of projects, from plumbing to windchimes.  Alro stocks copper bar, plate, sheet, pipe and copper tubing in 110 Copper (CDA C11000) tube grade.

Typical Uses of Copper

  • Welding Fixtures
  • Anodes
  • Ground Straps
  • Plumbing Fitting
  • Electrical Components

About The Types of Copper Alro Stocks

110 Copper

Alro stocks 110 Copper (CDA C11000), a grade with the highest electrical conductivity of any metal except silver. C110 Copper has high electrical and thermal conductivity, good corrosion resistance, and solderability. These properties, along with its workability and aesthetic appeal, make 110 copper a popular choice for plumbing fitting, welding fixtures, electrical components, and more. Alro stocks 110 copper plate, sheet, and tubing.

172 Beryllium Copper

Alro stocks C17200, also known as Alloy 25, the most commonly utilized beryllium copper (BeCu) alloy. 172 Beryllium Copper’s strength and hardness is similar to steel, and the highest among commercial copper alloys. It has less electrical conductivity than Class III alloys, but an extremely high hardness and tensile strength. It is typically used for electrical, fasteners, industrial parts, tools, and more. Alro stocks C17200 in copper plate that is available in various sizes and thicknesses.

Typical Properties of Copper

Tensile Strength:      32,000 PSI
Yield Strength:         10,000 PSI
Elongation:              55% (in 2")

Purchasing Copper

110 copper and 172 Beryllium Copper can be easily purchased online from Alro by selecting your grade from the grid and inputting your sizing specifications. You can also find a metal supplier near you and purchase from one of Alro’s  physical locations if you prefer.
