Classification of copper and copper alloys

  1. 1. CLASSIFICATION OF COPPERAND COPPER ALLOYS
  2. 2. Designated of alloys1.

  4. 4. Classification of copper alloys THERE ARE FIVE DIFFERENT CLASSIFICATION OF COPPER ALLOYS1)Unalloyed Copper2)Brasses• Copper – Zinc alloys• Copper – Lead alloys• Copper – Zinc alloys withTin and Aluminium additions3)Bronze• Copper – Tin alloys• Copper – Aluminium alloys• Copper – Silicon alloys• Copper – Beryllium alloys4) Cu-Ni based• Cupronickel (Cu-Ni)• Nickel silver (Cu-Ni-Zn5) Nickel silver
  5. 5. 1)Unalloyed Copper Copper content > 99.3%Roughly classify into three categories• Electrolytic tough pitchThis copper contains 99.9% Cu with 0.045 O content• Oxygen – freeOxygen-free copper is produced from electrorefined cathodecopper which is melt and cast in a reducing atmosphere of CO and N toprevent O.• Phosphorus deoxidizedPhosphorus is sufficiently added to producephosphoruspentoxide P2O5
  6. 6. 2) BrassThere are two Class of brass The alpha alloyswith less than 37% Zinc. These alloysare ductile and can be cold worked. The alpha/beta or duplex alloyswith 37-45% Zinc. These alloys havelimited cold ductility and are typicallyharder and stronger Families of Brass Cast alloy brasses Copper-Tin-Zinc alloys (red, semi-red and yellow brasses) Cast Copper-Bismuth and Copper-Bismuth-Selenium alloys. Copper-Zinc-Silicon alloys (Siliconbrasses and bronzes) wrought alloy brasses Copper-Zinc alloys Copper-Zinc-Tin alloys (Tin brasses) Copper-Zinc-Lead alloys (Leadedbrasses)
  7. 7. 3) Bronzefamilies of bronze are Cast bronze alloys Copper-Tin alloys (Tin Bronzes) Copper-Tin-Lead alloys (Leadedand high leaded Tin Bronzes) Copper-Tin-Nickel alloys (nickel-tinbronzes) Copper-Aluminium alloys(Aluminium Bronzes) Wrought alloys Copper-Tin-Phosphorus alloys(Phosphor Bronzes) Copper-Tin-Lead-Phosphorus alloys(Leaded Phosphor Bronzes) Copper-Aluminium alloys(Aluminium Bronzes)
  8. 8. Alloying Element Strength Color Electrical and thermal conductivity Machinability Corrosion resistant Wear resistant
  9. 9. Special Alloyswhich dont fall in any category which arementioned FREE MACHINING COPPERS COPPER-TUNGSTEN ALLOY
