Copper C101 Bar, Sheet and Plate
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
