Multimet Overseas is the most trusted and leading manufacturer, supplier, and exporter of Copper & Copper Alloys Products. One of the highest-strength copper-based alloys available on the market today is beryllium copper, also known as spring copper or beryllium bronze. The commercial grades of beryllium copper contain 0.4 to 2.0 percent beryllium. The small ratio of beryllium to copper creates a family of high copper alloys with strength as high as alloy steel. The first of the two families, C17200 and C17300, includes high strength with moderate conductivity, while the second family, C17500 and C17510, offers high conductivity with moderate strength.
Beryllium copper and its variety of alloys are utilized in very specific and often tailor-made applications such as oilfield tools, aerospace landing gears, robotic welding, and mold-making applications. Additional non-magnetic properties make it ideal for down-hole wireline tools. These specific applications are the reason this copper is known as spring copper and other various names.
Beryllium Copper is typically used in applications where it is important to have to have a combination of excellent formability, high fatigue strength, good hysteresis properties and creep resistance. Beryllium Copper is also used where the requirements are for an alloy requiring corrosion resistance and relatively high electrical conductivity, or nonmagnetic behavior, coupled with high strength.
