Copper alloys are metal alloys that have copper as their principal component. They have high resistance against corrosion. The best known traditional types are bronze; where tin is a significant addition, and brass, using zinc instead. Today the term copper alloy tends to be substituted.
The similarity in external appearance of the various alloys, along with the different combinations of elements used when making each alloy, can lead to confusion when categorizing the different compositions. There are as many as 400 different copper and copper-alloy compositions loosely grouped into the categories: copper, high copper alloy, brasses, bronzes, copper nickels, copper–nickel–zinc (nickel silver), leaded copper, and special alloys. The following table lists the principal alloying element for four of the more common types used in modern industry, along with the name for each type.
|Classification of copper and its alloys|
|Family||Principal alloying element||UNS numbers|
|Copper alloys, brass||Zinc (Zn)||C1xxxx–C4xxxx,C66400–C69800|
|Phosphor bronze||Tin (Sn)||C5xxxx|
|Aluminum bronzes||Aluminum (Al)||C60600–C64200|
|Silicon bronzes||Silicon (Si)||C64700–C66100|
|Cupronickel, nickel silvers||Nickel (Ni)||C7xxxx|
Industrial Uses for Copper Alloys
Because of their high thermal conductivity, excellent hardness, and high temperature strength, copper alloys are frequently used for applications requiring high electrical conductivity and superior mechanical strength.
It is its strength that makes this alloy a great choice when you require wear and corrosion resistance, and excellent bearing properties.
