Copper Grades

Copper Grades

Copper grades have the important mechanical properties that enable them to undergo various machining conditions and temperatures.

Copper grades, like other metal grades, also are specified and evaluated through their mechanical properties for their targeted and designated applications.

Copper GradesCopper grades possess such mechanical properties that are highly applicable in pump and valve components, pope line hardware, high strength fasteners for industrial process steams, and for marine equipment. They are known for their resisting properties against corrosion. Copper and other traditional metal types like brass and bronze are commonly referred to as “lattens” but they tend to be termed now as “copper alloys”.

Copper grades have mostly soft and malleable properties. They also possess ductility, high electrical and thermal conductivity. Copper metals are commonly used as heat and electricity conductor, a constituent of different metal alloys, and a building material.
