    Copper OFE

    Copper Alloy Properties

    OFHC Copper is electrolytically refined in a carefully regulated, oxygen-free environment. Our copper elements have reduced oxygen levels of .001% or below and each is thermally & electrically conductive.

    Oxygen-free copper products perform extremely well during hot and cold forming, whilst both Coppers also boasts excellent corrosion resistance. This is seen particularly with its resistance to atmospheric and water influences.

    We offer a bespoke service so, if you don’t see the size or form that you require, contact us either by phone, email or our contact form below, and we will provide a solution to your requirements.
