Copper C11000 Machined Parts

Copper C11000

Copper alloy 110 is an extremely popular copper alloy, with a wide range of applications due to its high corrosion resistance, conductivity, and finish. It has the highest electrical conductivity of any metal, except silver. When exposed to the elements, it forms a thin protective patina that is relatively impermeable. Copper 110 is ideal when extensive machining is not required, as it has an extremely low machinability compared to other copper alloys.

Copper 110 has a machining cost factor of 3.0 when compared to steel 12L14. It is excellent for hot and cold forming, as well as soldering. Copper 110 is not easily welded or brazed.
