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.

Beneficial Properties

  • Conductivity Very good thermal and electrical conductivity
  • Durability Strong performance, toughness and resilience
  • Flexibility Good workability, weldability and easy to machine
  • Corrosion-Resistant High resistance to certain corrosive environments and elements, fatigue and wear

Markets & Applications

  • Electrical components and equipment such as: conductors, microwave mechanisms, transistor elements, seals in electric appliances
  • High vacuum environments
  • Applications where there is little risk of undesirable chemical reactions
  • High Voltage electrodes
  • Particle accelerators
