C17510 - Beryllium Copper mold materials have hardness properties comparable to tool steels, but with superior thermal conductivity. Beryllium copper plate, block, bar and rounds -- upset forged and heat treated to multiple tempers for our Thermal-Mould™ product line's plastic mold tooling applications -- are available in a choice of strength, hardness and thermal conductivity levels.
C17510 Beryllium Copper is manufactured to provide a good strength with even better thermal conductivity than C17200. This copper alloy offers conductivity of 45 to 60 percent of pure copper while providing significant strength and hardness properties. This copper alloy is often used in the resistance welding industry.
Applications of C17510:
C17510 Beryllium Copper is typically used in conductors, relay parts, connectors, heavy duty, instrument parts, fuse clips, switch parts, fasteners, thermal transfer plates, high flux electromagnets, welding equipment, die casting plunger tips, and springs.
C17510 Beryllium Copper is available from IBC Advanced Alloys as rings, discs, bars, rods and plates.
