Copper base alloys have high electrical conductivity and resistance to corrosion.
Copper alloys have sufficient strength, ductility, and hardness which makes them best suited for springs operate in relay contacts and switch gears.
Some of the key properties are given below:
- Strength, at operating temperatures.
- Good wear or deformation resistance.
- Fatigue strength, especially for springs.
- Dimensional tolerances that meet the needs of advanced technology.
