Copper Round Rod Grades and TYpes

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

Copper Grades Grades and Types: Copper rod stock comes in a variety of grades and types, offering versatility and suitability for various applications. Here are some commonly available grades and types;

C101 (Oxygen-Free Electronic Copper):

C101, also known as oxygen-free electronic copper, is a high-purity grade renowned for its exceptional electrical conductivity. It is virtually free of oxygen, ensuring minimal oxidation and excellent electrical performance. C101 copper rod stock is commonly used in electrical and electronic applications that require high conductivity, such as power transmission, telecommunications, and printed circuit boards.

C110 (Electrolytic Tough Pitch Copper):

C110, or electrolytic tough pitch copper, is a versatile grade known for its excellent thermal and electrical conductivity. It exhibits good corrosion resistance and high ductility, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. C110 copper rod stock finds use in electrical wiring, bus bars, transformers, heat exchangers, and plumbing systems.

Copper Alloys

In addition to pure copper grades, there are copper alloys available that provide enhanced properties for specific applications. These alloys are created by adding other elements to copper, resulting in improved strength, corrosion resistance, or machinability. Some popular copper alloys used in rod stock include: C260 (Cartridge Brass): C260, also known as cartridge brass, is a copper-zinc alloy offering good corrosion resistance, high machinability, and excellent cold-working properties. Cartridge brass rod stock is commonly used in plumbing fittings, automotive components, musical instruments, and decorative applications. C360 (Free-Cutting Brass): C360, also referred to as free-cutting brass, is a leaded alloy recognized for its exceptional machinability. It finds use in precision machining applications where high-speed machining and excellent chip control are required. C360 brass rod stock is commonly employed in plumbing fixtures, fittings, electrical connectors, and various hardware applications.
