Copper Nickel Alloys
NES835 is commonly used to describe the alloy better-known as Hiduron 191 (UNS C72420). The Hiduron family of alloys were developed by Langley Alloys in the late 1930s. This alloy was immediately adopted for naval applications during the second world war. Today, it continues to be used in a wide range of industries and applications. […]
Copper and alloys primarily based upon copper are considered non-magnetic.
The unique patina of copper and its alloys will develop over time and protects the surface from further corrosion.
Copper is an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity, only bettered by silver in both instances.
Copper is an excellent electrical conductor, only bettered by silver, explaining why it is used in domestic electrical wiring.
Copper has excellent thermal conductivity, explaining its widespread use in household implements such as pots and pans.
Brasses are copper-based alloys with additions of zinc. They are typically very formable and bright yellow in appearance.
Bronzes are copper-based alloys typically with additions of tin, aluminium and silicon.
