Copper C101 Bar, Sheet and Plate

 

c101cable

Besides acting as a base for all brasses and bronzes, copper is an engineering material in its own right. C101 harnesses high electrical and thermal conductivity and along with having a high ductility and impact strength, it can be a very useful material.

A restriction of C101 is poor weldability and as a result welding is not recommended.

 

As mentioned above, the versatility of C101 leads to lots of potential different uses…

  • It can be used in countless electrical and domestic appliances.
  • It features in many different components used in the automotive industry.
  • General engineering.
  • Cold-formed parts.

 

C101 is available from us in rods, bars, squares and flats.

Rods and bars from 3/16” dia – 6” dia

Flats from 1/2 x 1/8 – 4” x 2”

Squares from 6mm sq – 3” Sq
